The most relevant was the highest attendance of professionals in history, strong organization, good atmosphere and enough space for networking, meetings and new collaborations.  On festival CZECH DANCE PLATFROM participated other 120 presenters and on Aerowaves Spring Forward 240 presenters and writers from whole world and 90 artists from Europe.
