CAPE Users Meet 3 - 5 September in Ljubljana
The European edition of the CAPE Users’ Group Meeting with CAPE refresher training:
3 - 5 September in Ljubljana, Slovenia. We promise a great opportunity to expand your knowledge of system protection, learn the latest about CAPE, guide CAPE’s future development, and meet with colleagues from other companies and countries.
We want to make the User Group Meeting accessible to every CAPE customer because we're totally convinced of the value of a face-to-face get-together. One online registration process covers all three days, including the Users’ Group Meeting and the training day.
