We start 2020 with a treat. We will host our first meetup of the year at Rega, the Swiss Air-Rescue service based at Zurich Airport. Rega is a non-profit organization funded by its patrons. They offer 24/7 air assistance in medical emergencies and operate 17’000 missions every year.

In the public safety sector they take a leading role when it comes to embracing the digital transformation. Rega supports about 300 applications for aviation, emergency dispatch, aircraft maintenance and more. And they are moving to the Azure cloud! Join us in this unique meetup and lets see what they are up to.
