On behalf of the Global Power and Propulsion Society, we would like to sincerely thank those of you who attended the GPPS Beijing19 Technical Conference for your enthusiasm and support.
The quality of the conference proceedings has been excellent, and over the three-day event, we have enjoyed some exciting paper presentations, keynotes, and talks.
The event has been a testament to the hard work and dedication of teams in China, Europe and USA, and we would very much like to thank everybody involved.
Initial feedback has been very positive, and we much hope you enjoyed catching up on the latest developments in turbomachinery technologies and also networking with your colleagues. In this relatively small and intimate event we've seen many opportunities for collaboration arise and look forward to hearing more about how these have progressed in future GPPS events.
If you would like to revisit your time in Beijing, we have our GPPS photo gallery now online.
