“What a fantastic CONNECT conference in Cagliari, over 40 meetings in 3 days which is a new record for RDC. A great opportunity to catch up with clients and introduce other companies to our products.”

“There is great attention to detail and the CONNECT team are like an army of ants with their eyes on everything!”
