we were quite excited that meetings and fairs could take place again, finally meeting again, experiencing news first hand and face to face, arranging joint reports and many more things that were not or only partially possible during the Corona related lockdown. Our enthusiasm knew no bounds and of course we immediately registered for (almost) all events. The biggest event was certainly IFAT. There we had really many good conversations, it was just nice to meet again – most of them for the first time after more than two years. Some contacts had only started their work during the Corona period – now they had a face to it for the first time. From issue to issue we will report on the new developments presented. But there were also very interesting smaller events where I learned many new things.
However, there was one catch to this exciting time – after we had happily booked and planned everything, we realized that we were actually hardly in the office anymore and the necessary work then had to be shifted to the evening or the weekend in addition to the few hours in the office ... But it was a good, exciting time ... and did you, dear readers, perhaps feel similarly to us?
