DGM Network

Since 1987 taking the danger out of dangerous goods

The 2016 DGM World Meeting was held on August 28th-30th in Kraków, Poland. Like every year, representatives of DGM offices all around the world met for two days to discuss the challenges they are facing and find new solutions. It was also a chance to meet old colleagues and friends, and for the newcomers who have recently joined the network, an opportunity to introduce themselves to the veterans.

 World Meeting 2015

 

World Meeting 2015The World Meeting is divided into two parts: the general meeting, where the most relevant subjects are presented and discussed among every attendee; and the regional meetings, which offer an occasion to discuss matters of particular interest to certain regions of the world (Europe, Latin America, North America, Asia-Pacific and Asia). The agenda covers topics of both managerial and technical nature, suggested by either DGM Support or the local DGMs.

Every year guest speakers are invited to share their experiences in the dangerous goods transportation business. In Kraków we were joined by Błażej Kopczyk from BMZ Poland, who talked about shipping lithium batteries and their cooperation with DGM Poland.

World Meeting 2015During the weekend we had the chance to visit some of the most amazing tourist attractions in and around Kraków, such as the historical city centre or a visit to the breathtaking Wieliczka salt mine.

DGM Support wants to thank our Polish hosts for the effort put into the organization of this event and for their hospitality – they truly made us feel at home!
