Appenzell, Switzerland
SCANCO Medical User Meeting 2023
November 15-18, Appenzell

Invitation

This year, SCANCO Medical is celebrating 35 years of innovation in the field of microCT. SCANCO Medical would not be there today without all our customers, we are therefore happy to invite you all to our upcoming User Meeting.

The 2023 SCANCO User Meeting will be held again in Appenzell, Switzerland. Many of you certainly remember this place and will hopefully be happy to return after the 2008, 2013 and 2018 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 let us know in good time before the meeting.

The presentations will be selected to cover the areas of highest general interest and will be mixed with presentations from SCANCO Medical employees covering topics from current updates, new developments and future ideas.

The meeting will be sponsored by SCANCO Medical that will cover participation costs, all meals (3 lunches and 2 dinners) and social events including any excursions (weather permitting), for one person per scanner. For each additional participant (or accompanying persons), if it is possible to accommodate, a fee of CHF 300 will be charged. Transportation to the meeting and hotel will be covered by the participants.

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.

We look forward to welcome you in Appenzell.
