It is with a heavy heart that we learned of the terrorist attacks on Tuesday. These attacks are not only a threat to our industry, but more importantly they represent a threat to our way of life and our freedoms.
We wish to express our concern for all our members and hope you are all safe and well. Our thoughts are with the victims and their close ones, we wish to extend our sincere feelings of sympathy to all those affected.
A difficult time lies ahead for the heart of Europe and our country’s image will continue to suffer heavily. As a community, let’s work together with determination to show our international colleagues why they should continue meeting in and travelling to the center of Europe. Let is join forces to shed a positive light on the diversity of our local communities.
