An attendees comment:
"I did not know what to expect while traveling to Varese. But I can tell you that this week-end did exceed all my expectations! It was a wonderful experience to be able to share our common passion for aviation with people coming from so various horizons and countries... I did learn a lot from all of you!"
Another attendees comment:
"And let me say to all of you that it was a great pleasure to meet you and to spend a weekend in the company of such a dynamic group of people. I will treasure the memory and hope to see you again--perhaps at the next AWE conference?
Finally, I want to express my gratitude to Michelle and her crew for making this conference such a splendid experience. I'm sure others feel the same.
I am in awe at the work you did, Michelle--both in the months of preparation and in the three days of the meeting. Your energy, your wit, your thorough and thoughtful planning, your attention to detail, your resilience and resourcefulness (devising not just Plan A and Plan B but even, when needed, Plan Z.999), most of all, your unfailing smile--all of these combined to ensure true "heights of success"! Brava, brava!!"
