I would like to take this opportunity to thank you all for the trustful election that took place during the ICF Congress in Hongkong in October 2016. With great honor and pleasure, I take the responsibility as the President of this prestigious federation.
The Hongkong Congress was exceptional in terms of organization, the good choice of location, quality presentation and tours. The property where the conference took place was remarkable. I would like to thank the previous President Mr. Stuart W. Thorn for his remarkable works and contribution to the federation during his Presidency.
I look forward to see you all during the next ICF Congress scheduled in Barcelona, Spain from the 10th -14th October 2017. In my communication with the members of the standing committee, I understood that they are preparing a very exciting program for the Barcelona Congress, please do not hesitate to attend this Congress with your spouses to benefit from the exciting lectures and the tour programs.
With the support of my two Vice President’s; Mr. Arnaud Poupart-Lafarge and Mr. Richard Stinson, I am confident that we will rise to face the current challenging times and enhance our industry capabilities and take our federation to new heights.
I am thankful to each member of this federation for their valuable contribution and look forward to meeting them again in our upcoming events!
