Undoubtedly the most interesting aspect of this event was the exhibition. 202 organizations presented their products and services. In just the first day the exhibition was visited by 3000 people.
ICNDT General Assembly, the meetings of the ISO TC-135 NDT Committee and the Policy and General Purposes Committee of the International Committee of NDT (PGP-ICNDT) were held simultaneously with this Conference. During the ICNDT meeting the new chairman Mike Farley was elected to replace Douglas Marshall. Also in this meeting the German Society for NDT (DGZfP) was elected to hold the 19th WCNDT 2016 in Munich. But before we look so far into the future, the 18th WCNDT will take place in South Africa probably in April 2012. The WCNDT 2012 was introduced by its President Manfred Johannes as well during the closing ceremony other main NDT events like the APCNDT 2009 in Japan and the ECNDT 2010 in Russia where introduced.
