302 delegates from 33 different countries are just two of the many facts and figures surrounding yet another successful EFCLIN Congress and Exhibition (27th – 29th April). The wonderful city of Prague in Czech REpublic played host to this years event and activity centred around the very well appointed Corinthia Hotel.
The congress theme of “Reaching For The Stars” was echoed by all the speakers in the strong and very varied lecture program, and this was further supported by the exhibitors taking a chance to showcase their latest product innovations.
