Organizers meeting at Marma Gård in Sweden
This weekend almost all organizers in EDRS meet up at Marma Gård just outside Uppsala in Sweden, where Speedgroups headquarter now is located.
Speedgroup invited all EDRS organizers to a conference during Saturday and Sunday the 22-23 October to discuss the 2016 season ups and downs. And to plan for the 2017 season. It was a very creative weekend where the organizers from almost all Scandinavian countries could exchange their skills from different event.
-It is very good to have this kind of meeting, says Åsa Kinnemar, CEO SPeedgroup. The participators at this meeting was able to meet and discuss and solve a lot issues that about every organizer have now and then. The calendar for next year is very close to be set for, example. Which most of the years have taken quite some time to put together. There is some adjustment that has to be done, but I´m pretty sure we can present a calendar at the banquet in November.
The meetings at Saturday was closed with a nice dinner in Marmasalen at Marma Gård. Sunday morning was booked to workshops where the organizers was divided in three groups where the discussions was about marketing, economy, media and classes among other things. Speedgroup thanks all participators who was able to come and for a good meeting. Missing this time was Haapsalu crew in Estonia and Valle and Frøja crew.
