“It was my first ever IGHC attendance. The event was very well managed and the topics for the plenary sessions and presentations were curated to the demand of the industry. Being a Member of the Charter of Professional Auditors (CoPA), it was a good opportunity for me to meet fellow auditors and IATA Team. Further the Showcase of the New Era Technology was a great way to make one aware of the upcoming future changes.”
