Welcome Cocktail in the Exhibition
In order to be totally compliant with the European Federation of Pharmaceutical Industries and Associations (EFPIA) Code of Conduct, and thus allow pharmaceutical and medical industry to participate in and support our annual Congress, the ERA-EDTA cannot provide any kind of entertainment (music, etc.) during any of its sessions. This is also true with regard to being compliant with the European Union of Medical Specialists (UEMS) accreditation. As a result, the nature of the Welcome Ceremony has had to change accordingly, and this will be the case also for all future ERA-EDTA Congresses until, or unless, these rules alter.
