It was then decided that this conference should become a tradition. Therefore, the second edition of the Conference took place at the premises of ‘Minerva’, ‘Diana’ and ‘Afrodita’ hotels from Baile Herculane, in 1988.
The Romanian Society for Quality Assurance took over this tradition, by organizing the third edition of the Conference at Hotel ‘Roman’ from Baile Herculane, in September 1996. The fifth edition was organized in the period 28th – 30th of October 1998, in Sinaia; the sixth edition of the Conference was organized in 1999, the 22nd – 24th of October, at Hotel ‘Sport’ from Poiana Brasov, and in 2000, between 27th – 29th of September, the seventh edition was organized, at Hotel ‘Palace’ from Sinaia.
