Re-location of ECI 2018 and ECI 2021
The EFIS Board thanks those Societies that have acknowledged with their replies and ratified the decision to alternate the venues of ECI 2018 and ECI 2021. As already expressed by TSI and EFIS Presidents, this was by no means an easy decision. It was, however, deemed to be the best alternative to ensure the success of both events. The Dutch Society (NVVI) has been informed accordingly, to proceed with arrangements for what is sure to be a memorable occasion.
