Maxime was met at the airport by Tomáš Náhlík, the Chairman of the association and was then brought to the host venue, the Top Hotel which is a 4 star hotel on the outskirts of Prague.
The Hotel was selected by the hotel due to the excellent conference facilities which should make for a superb venue for the event which will open up on the 2nd of June next year and run till the 13th of June. On the 15th Maxime then met with the board of the association as they discussed all the technical details of the tournament, in which Maxime was very impressed by the highly motivated team put in place to run the event.
