The ELR is a progressive organisation which is openly expanding its representation not only to Swedish customers, but Europe and beyond. The supplier exhibition included representatives from three industry trade associations, the AEMT (UK), Repamotor (Denmark) and EASA Europe and World Chapter – region 9.

Our appreciation goes out to the warm welcome we received during our visit and for the efforts of all of the ELR members that spoke perfect English to make us feel at home. Plans are underway to visit specific clients in Denmark and Sweden in November from interest shown at the conference. Each visit is aimed at understanding the business and its needs and demonstrating software that is used around the world for this industry.
