EFCLIN Congress & Exhibition Sitges 2022– Not being there would have been a mistake

48th EFCLIN Congress and Exhibition could welcome nearly 300 visitors in Sitges/ Barcelona the 28th – 30th April 2022. Particularly much space was given to the regulatory issues that continue to preoccupy the entire industry. Innovations in contact lens and IOL design, new technologies in manufacturing and how to properly evaluate software were other strong lecture topics.  “The EFCLIN community is more alive than ever,” says President Armin Duddek.

A current and attractive lecture programme, a Manufacturers’ Forum and an interesting industrial exhibition attracted 289 visitors from 31 countries to Sitges. Visitors were able to find out about materials for contact lenses and intraocular lenses (IOL), manufacturing machines, measuring instruments, diamond tools, contact lenses and IOL innovations as well as services.

“Not being there would have been a mistake”, mentioned a visitor from Australia. With delegates arriving from all over the world the 48th EFCLIN Congress & Exhibition proved once again that it is “the place to be” for all things Contact Lens and IOL.

The wonderful city of Sitges in Spain played host to this year’s event and activity centered around the very well-appointed Meliã Sitges Hotel.

Many of the speakers in the strong and very varied lecture program echoed the congress theme of «A World of Opportunities 2022», and the exhibitors taking a chance to highlight their latest product innovations further supported this.

The General Annual Meeting re-elected Gareth Browne from Contamac as Board member for another term of service.

Before the congress was wound up the EFCLIN Board announced that the 2023 event, the 49th EFCLIN Congress & Exhibition would take place from the 20th – 22nd  April 2023 in Budapest, Hungary.
