The conference was distinguished not only by representation but also by perfect organization.
So many special thanks to your scientific and organizing group. During lobby interviews with my colleagues more than once I heard complimentary remarks about both this forum and your Cardiology Center which for those days had become a cosy and hospitable home for all the participants of the conference.
I’d like to wish you and your staff further success and a continuation of such interesting and informative meeting».
