"And Why Is It Important That It Did?" Both lines are part of the overall title chosen by author Annette Lyn O'Neill for her article on Indoor Skydiving 2020 | First Global Summit (ISGS). It appears on dropzone.com, the top-ranked digital platform for skydiving.
But that is not all of it. It is a fortunate coincidence that two follow-up articles on the recent summit are published in less than 24 hours.
"Nobody knew what to expect but everybody was happy to finally meet." That is how Ivars Beitans and Toms Ivans set the scene in their post-summit article on the different topics that were discussed in ten sessions at the Santa Clara Convent in Castelló d'Émpúries. The two representatives of Aerodium have gone to considerable length in summarizing what was discussed and in drawing their own conclusions. Ivars, the owner and foremost visionary of Aerodium, and Toms, the freestyle champion at The Wind Games 2020, publish their lengthy article on the company website under the title "... As We See It."
An altogether different analysis – "What You Should Really Know ..." – is authored by Annette Lyn O'Neil on the basis of conversations she held with the ISGS organizer Roland Hilfiker and with Andrey Karr, Tunnel Tech's Chief Business Development Officer, who was also one of the panelists.
The two articles could not be any more contrasting in the way that they present the process and the outcome of ISGS, but it is precisely in their divergent styles that they seem to create an odd consensus.
