Finally after several setbacks it was all systems go for the Biofuels International Conference and Expo in Brussels, Belgium.
Now that the successful event has been concluded, next year's has been pencilled on for next May at the same venue.
It was hard to believe that the last time everyone convened for the conference at the glorious former 1930s theatre turned hotel, the Plaza, in the heart of the Belgian capital, was in 2019.
Then, US President Donald Trump was still causing chaos in the White House while Covid was beginning to sink its deadly spikes in some backwater of a Chinese market at a province the world would soon become familiar with.
So when we said our goodbyes three years’ ago, little did everybody think it would be 2022 before everyone would meet up again.
Even as the team from Woodcote Media made their way across the Chunnel and into mainland Europe, there was almost a sense of disbelief the event was about to take place.
This time, not even labour strikes and travel chaos across European airports was going to derail the event on 5-6 July.
