We would like to say thank you to all the military speakers at the 3d Space Event in Feb alongside all the industry repersentatives as well Mr Tim Close and Steven Patmore for speaking at our Drones event last July, the Temporary Works Coordination event in January and Mr Cyril Knabe-Nicol for coming to speak in Chilwell. All events were very enlightening and I believe all who attended the events found them useful.
