As usual we have a number of sponsors for both meetings. We will be very pleased to welcome them and to thank them for their support. They will all have tables where you will be able to chat with their representatives and pick up additional information.

There will be a break at a convenient point during the presentation which will allow time to socialize with fellow members and to spend more time visiting our sponsors.
