The YO reception was very well attended by YOs representing all corners of Europe. SOE and UEMS leadership also attended and mingled with the YOs. Anthony Khawaja, chair of the SOE YO committee addressed the attendees, as did Stefan Seregard, later to be announced as new SOE president. Also in attendance to meet and greet YOs was the incoming SOE Secretary General Thomas Fenech. Again, this event was an excellent opportunity for international connections to be made, and enthusiasm drummed up for pro-actively tackling the issues the ophthalmic profession and YOs face in the globalising world.
We are extremely grateful to Allergan who sponsored the SOE YO events at the congress in Geneva.
