Exciting panel

The panel was really exciting and very well attended. I found the scientific content of this meeting to be extremely high and I certainly appreciate the strong level of industry support and the level of discussion and dialogues that has taken place at this meeting. One of the best of the year, certainly.

Best Content

I’m fortunate to attend a lot of pathology meetings and a lot of digital pathology meetings. This meeting has the best content and the best speakers, probably one of the best informative meetings of the year with very, very strong and growing industry support thanks to all of you. They squeezed in a lot in 2 days but I think the meeting really works.
