The Euro PM2011 saw delegates from nearly 50 countries including from the Far East, Africa and the Americas and there were more than 250 oral and poster presentations, according to EPMA.

Jonathan Wroe, EPMA Executive Director, says: “Barcelona has proved a most popular location for what has been the largest PM event in the world this year and the largest Euro PM event we have ever organised. We would like to thank the efforts of the EPMA Spanish Chapter and the Generalitat de Catalunya, plus the support of our members and delegates, which is much appreciated.”
