The exhibition is sponsored by MEP Mrs Brigit Sippel, who supports the goals and the socio-political importance of Amateur Radio, said “this exhibition will offer the possibility to become informed about this service”. The exhibition was opened by IARU Region 1 President PB2T.

The opening was attended by the Euro Commissioner responsible for International Cooperation, Humanitarian Aid and Crisis Response Dr Kristalina Georgieva together with many MEPS and their assistants.
