A HITEC Europe view from the stands

Coming back from HITEC on Friday, I was left with that post-show glow one gets when knowing you made the right decision to exhibit. Everyone talks of this as the first European HITEC, which it was, but some of us have been in the industry long enough (makes me feel old) to remember the last “first HITEC” – though it was called HFTP Europe - held at the Hilton Amsterdam sometime in the 90s and I think survived two years.
