Castres, on October 9 2008
The seminars of the Laboratories Pierre Fabre France celebrated in Barcelona from August 25 to August 29 were a great success.
They have allowed us, for the first time in the history of our society, to bring together our 2.000 commercial collaborators and to contribute, this way, to the necessary motivation to confront the future challenges.
Receiving our branch Pierre Fabre Santé, the Hotel Rey Juan Carlos I has taken part actively in the success of this event. We wanted to be grateful for this reason.
Please agree the expression of my attentive greeting.

Last March, 2009, the Annual Pharma Conference- Sales Force Effecctiveness took place in the Palau de Congressos de Catalunya, with more than 300 attendees specializated in pharmaceutical sales sector.

A Brief introduction... ESTRO is the European Society for Therapeutic Radiology and Oncology. Based in Brussels, this association regroups some of the top players in the World of Cancer Treatment, mainly in the field of radiation oncology.
Muriel Hallet has been hired as Events and Industry Relations Manager 5 years ago and is therefore responsible for all major events organized by the association and some collaborating entities.
Description of the event (number of delegates, nationalities, target, type of event....) The 9th Biennial ESTRO conference was held from the 8th to the 13th of September 2007 and is dedicated to a state-of-the-art scientific audience. With more than 2000 delegates coming from over 50 different countries, it was this year one of our biggest events so far.
Why did you choose the Palau?, have we achieved your expectations??? . Your opinions and experiences.
"To have the 9th Biennial conference at the Palau was considered by ESTRO as a challenge. Indeed, mainly due to the size of its exhibition, the conference was actually a bit too big for the venue. But the previous conference (ICHNO) organized by ESTRO in February 2007 in the Palau had helped us a lot in defining the best way for working together and it finally proved to be very efficient.
The participants appreciated the easy access by metro and by highway. They also enjoyed the warm and sunny weather of Barcelona taking a relaxing walk in the gorgeous gardens surrounding the Palau.
The second edition of ICHNO will take place in February 2009 at the Palau, which will be then our 3rd event there, so there is no doubt ESTRO enjoys the close collaboration we have with the Palau de Catalunya and the beautiful city of Barcelona!"
