Belgium had the honour of being the 2018 host to the North Atlantic Coast Guard Forum (NACGF). That meant organizing two conferences in one year. In spring for the expert meetings and in autumn for the summit meeting for a total of 160 participants from Belgium and abroad.
Curious about how we organized all that? Take a peek behind the scenes at the NACGF 2018.
