We are pleased to bring to you our review of the inaugural ICARUS Conference held in Zagreb between 17-20 May 2022.
ZAGREB, CROATIA – In the beautiful city of Zagreb, capital of Croatia, Inxelo Technologies organized a first of hopefully many ICARUS Conferences. The idea behind the conference was to bring all customers and special guests in order to exchange ideas, knowledge and experiences in Safety and Compliance with an outlook on ICARUS software solution. The conference was held in the Hotel Esplanade in the center of Zagreb.
The conference was organized in two parts – morning part was full of various presentation while the afternoon part was covered by the official continuous SMS training with our colleague Margriet Bredewold.
Also, the conference was streamed live to our online audience who participated around the world.
DAY 1 – 17 May 2022
Welcome presentation was opened by Inxelo Technologies team which gave a brief history of how ICARUS started and how far we have come together with our customers. The next on stage was Margriet Bredewold from the company Co-Guard GmbH (Switzerland) and introduced herself as the SMS instructor for the conference. Margriet had an interesting topic of sociotechnical approach in Safety. After Margriet, our dear colleague and ICARUS representative for Latin America, Victor Manuel del Castillo presented his company Safety Management System Mexico and his career in aviation where he has now experience over 52 years!
