2017 Annual EFCLIN Congress and Exhibition
April 27-29, 2017
Prague, Czech Republic
Reaching For The Stars – This motto will guide through the 44th EFCLIN Congress and Exhibition. With a full program of contact lens-related lectures, a manufacturers forum, a business session and a high quality and full IOL related program, EFCLIN delegates are going to be busy!
Following the overwhelming success of the exhibition at last years congress in Valencia, demand for space at the 2017 event is high. To make things even more difficult the overall available exhibit space is not bigger than that of Valencia. Therefore the EFCLIN Secretariat are having to handle applications for booth space on a STRICTLY “first come- first served” basis. Want to give your self the best chance of getting a booth space? Waste no time and register!
If you would like to submit an event to this calendar, please contact the CLMA. All entries are made at the discretion of the site editor.
