Falk Börsch, CEO TÜV Hessen:

"I have missed a conference like „iTEC08 – Your Technology Hotspot“ so far. This event will attract entrepreneurs from beyond Germany, who want to get informed about the latest technologies for their everyday business in a very concentrated way without the hazzle of a fair. Of course, I´m glad that this conference will take place in the new highlight of the Science City Darmstadt, the darmstadtium. I am especially fascinated by the seniority of the speakers and the international look at this broad range of topics."
