April 27 & 28, 2017
The Spring CMA Convention will take place on 27th and 28th April at the offices of Swissphone which are close to Zurich, Switzerland. We will be staying at the Hotel Meierhof in nearby Horgen ( http://www.hotelmeierhof.ch/ ) The price for the hotel will be 212.50 CHF per person per night to include breakfast, wifi, parking, entrance for Active Fitness, Water and Coffee to go. However, for you to take advantage of this rate we need to know if you are going to attend by 31 March 2017.
Please register your attendance with Derek Banner at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will reserve your accommodation.
This year we plan to concentrate on current and future developments in the Critical Messaging industry so we will be having a guest speaker, Harald Ludwig (MD, Arico Technologies) who will speak to us about “Public Safety Communications and LTE”.
Presenters include Angelo Saccoccia (CEO Swissphone) speaking on Paging in Europe, Chris Jones (CEO PageOne) speaking on TRIPLE Redundancy, Ilan Friedland (CEO Beeper) speaking on the National Alert System in Israel, and Rupert Johnson (Marketing Director Multitone) will be giving us an update on the ETSI Radio Equipment Directive (RED) and the substantial amount of work we have done to ensure we have a RED compliant specification in place as early as possible. We will also have two workshops, one on Redundancy and Resilience in Public Safety Communications and the other on Lobbying.
On Thursday April 27, we will visit the headquarters of the world famous Lindt & Sprüngli Chocolatiers in Kilchberg for an evening of making (and tasting) SWISS chocolate and then on to dinner at a local Swiss restaurant. This is a great opportunity to meet with colleagues in the same industry from Australia, the USA and Europe, potential suppliers, potential customers and to find out what is going on in other countries.
