12th Annual EWMA Conference

Last week saw the 12th Annual EWMA conference and this year it was held in the beautiful city of Vienna, Austria. This is a big event within our calendar as it allows us to meet a wide variety of colleagues, healthcare professionals and customers from all over the world.

In order to really maximise our time and to take advantage of it being a European event we also schedule our international distributor meeting in before the event begins. This is a great opportunity to get the wider Advancis Medical family together and provide feedback, as well as celebrate what has been a great year. 

This year’s meeting saw Sarah Bunn, tissue viability nurse from here in the UK, present her work on the Advazorb foam dressing range. Sarah has worked on several case studies using the Advazorb range and put together a poster for submission to the EWMA conference, she gave our international distributors a sneak peak. Read the poster here.

We presented our Slovakian distributors with the distributor of the year award for 2012 to represent the huge growth and excellence they have provided over the past year. It was also an official introduction to our new US and France satellite partners.

The EWMA conference itself was one of the best we have seen, this year there was over 2900 participants in attendance from 67 countries. The new and improved Advancis Medical stand was busy throughout and it provided the ideal platform to meet potential commercial partners as well as promoting our new and existing products.
