SCANCO User Meeting 2018 - October 25-27

Dear Customer,

 

SCANCO Medical celebrates 30 years of innovation in the field of microCT in 2018. Our customers and users have been an integral part of our success so we are pleased to invite all our customers to our next Scanco world-wide user meeting. 

The SCANCO User Meeting 2018 will be again held again in Appenzell, Switzerland. Many of you certainly remember this place and will hopefully be happy to return after the 2008 or 2013 editions.

The User Meeting will be the perfect occasion to meet and discuss with other microCT users, exchange your experiences and find new inspirations. A "Meet the expert" session will also be organized, where you will be able to discuss and ask all your questions to SCANCO Medical microCT experts. Those sessions will be based on individual appointments so if you would like to take this opportunity, please indicate it already in the inscription form or contact us in good time before the meeting.

For those interested, it will also be possible to visit SCANCO Medical premises in Brüttisellen the day preceding the meeting, and see where and how all the development and production happens from behind the scenes.

The presentations will be selected to cover the areas of highest general interest and will be mixed with presentations from SCANCO Medical employees covering a large range of aspects around microCT The meeting will be sponsored by SCANCO Medical that will cover participation costs, all meals (3 lunches and 2 dinners) and social events including a hiking trip, for one person per scanner. For each additional participant we ask for an additional 200 CHF fee. Transportation to the meeting and hotel will be covered by the participants.

We look forward to welcoming you in Appenzell. 

With Best Regards from all your colleagues at SCANCO Medical.
