EUFMC Attendees Say

The 2023 EUFMC was my first time attending, and I thought being in a sea of my peers learning from one another was fantastic. I do appreciate how everyone who presented showed their company information, the entire agenda was easy to follow, and everyone representing the conference was so friendly and welcoming.
