EDITORIAL

Dear readers,

150 days to Gdansk!

As you know, the nextPIARC International Winter Road Congress will take place in the city of Gdansk (Poland), from 20 to 23 February 2018. This will be an exciting professional event, with technical sessions on topics as varied as road safety and Road weather information, all under the banner of the Congress motto "Providing a Safe and Sustainable Winter Road Service".

It will include an exhibition where equipment vendors and manufacturers will showcase their latest products and services. What's more, ten PIARC member countries have confirmed that they will organise national pavilions, on which delegates and visitors will be able to take stock of international developments.

The international snowplough competition is confirmed too. This is a very well appreciated part of the Congress as it involves staff members from various backgrounds, including "blue collar" operators who are an integral part of successful winter service operations.

Last but not least... Registrations for Gdansk are now open! You are all invited to check in at http://aipcrgdansk2018.org/ and get ready for an exciting adventure.

Sincerely,

Patrick Malléjacq

Patrick Malléjacq Secretary General
