On 08 December, the CEOC Communication experts and the so-called Brussels Focus Group (CEOC member representatives located in Brussels) met under the chairmanship of Marc Van Overmeire (Vinçotte) for their final meeting in 2010 in order to set up the details of next year's event and meeting programme. In 2011, CEOC International will turn 50 and therefore a series of events is foreseen on this special occasion. The event cycle will take off with the CEOC Annual Reception, to be held in Brussels at the Stanhope Hotel on 16 March, followed by the CEOC General Assembly from 28-31 May in Warsaw and the CEOC Safety Seminar on 21 and 22 September 2011. The year will also be marked by the 100 years anniversary of CEOC's Polish member UDT who will host the General Assembly in Warsaw and provide an excellent programme to review and celebrate 100 years of technical inspection in Poland and beyond. European Parliament President Buzek has been invited as key-note speaker in order to unveil some highlights of the upcoming Polish EU Presidency.
On 17 January 2011, CEOC's Polish members UDT (Office of Technical Inspection), TDT (Transportation Technical Supervision), together with WDT (Military Technical Inspection) will host a high-level jubilee gala in Warsaw to celebrate 100 years of Polish Technical Inspection.
