Quality Excellence Symposium 2015

CAQ AG will be hosting its Quality Excellence Symposium on the 25th of September exclusively for its customers at the Laacher See, near Koblenz. This event allows you to learn more about the successful deployment and application of CAQ.Net in the everyday working environment from fellow users and how our latest innovations can benefit you.

Clear communication, trust, and fairness are the cornerstones of our company philosophy and business conduct. Hence, the fundamental principle behind the Quality Excellence Symposium is the mutual exchange of knowledge and experience between us and our users. Apart from introducing the latest innovations and conveying the latest news from within the world of CAQ.Net® and quality management in general, the event therefore primarily serves as a forum where our users can discuss CAQ and quality-related topics with us and one another.

Laach Lake

The Laacher See or Laach Lake (in English) is a volcanic caldera lake with a diameter of 2 km in Rhineland-Palatinate, Germany, about 24 km northwest of Koblenz and 37 km south of Bonn. It is in the Eifel mountain range, and is part of the East Eifel volcanic field named Vulkaneifel. The lake was formed by a Plinian eruption approximately 12,900 years ago with a Volcanic Explosivity Index (VEI) of 6, on the same scale as the Pinatubo eruption of 1991.
