This was my first time at the ICRBE, I'm really glad I made the trip. I was impressed, learned a few new tricks, made some contacts, met some master builders, but most importantly I made a few new friends and which I hope to see again next year.

Hi Fernando,

I’m sure I was one of your new friends you made at the show :). Was great to meet you and looking forward to seeing you again at Edison show, of course next year ICRBE.

I cannot agree more. This was also my first year in attendance, and my wife and I had an amazing time. We left our hotel room at 6:20am and did not return until 11:45pm. Absolutely fantastic group of people.
