To ensure that everyone benefits from this important topic, we have since our launch event in Greece taken this important showcase to USA and Australia and it returns now to Europe where Italy will host this years International gathering.

We will continue to discuss and debate this important topic.  It has been quoted to us that people who have attended this event truly believe we are helping to save lives by bringing together anyone who is involved in this industry to support and learn from each other.
