In the balmy environment of Goa in August, the 7th Annual Conference of Academy of Clinical Embryologists was held at the Holiday Inn Resort. The conference attracted over 250 delegates from around the globe, along with some of the world’s leading Embryologists presenting a variety of topics; this was accompanied by an exhibitor’s hall with stands from over 50 sponsors.
The key speakers were put through their paces, with talks running constantly that each ended with some knowledgeable question and answer sessions. The venue was perfect, giving the delegates easy access to the exhibition hall and the opportunities to take their time to talk to industry specialists about their equipment and consumable needs. ACE organisers provided an array of refreshments along with some of the best Indian food. The gala evening was also a major hit, giving all the delegates and exhibitors a chance to socialise in a relaxed atmosphere with music and dancing, all washed down with much needed 'cold' drinks ...
Planer supported our local distributor, ShineLife, by helping exhibit our much anticipated CT37stax™ Benchtop Incubator. The product generated a lot of interest and after talking to many embryologists, it quickly became clear that the CT37stax™ is set to change the way people set up their laboratories. With extra workspace within labs at a premium, the creation of a high capacity, compact incubator has answered many of the delegates' dreams.
The ACE 2018 Goa conference was a huge success, having made old relationships stronger and forging new ones with many people within the industry.
