The first CORE dinner event specifically organized for CORE suppliers and buyers (called “COREpa Cabana”) took place right next to the exhibition area at StrandZuid on Monday evening (June 17th, 2013). It was a huge success. 80 APRA members participated. Cold drinks, tasty food and exotic Brazilian entertainment were included. Participating CORE professionals were busy networking with each other. COREpa Cabana was so well received that it is going to become an annual APRA CORE event.

The ReMaTec 2013 was a resounding success for APRA.
