Impressions from SALSS 2013

Dear Barbro & Veronica,
I am writing to thank you and the staff responsible for the organization of 2013 Swedish American Life Sciences Summit. In addition to our agenda of cooperation with the Swedish Medical Products Agency, the Summit was a very important and pleasant opportunity to present what is going on in terms of ANVISA´s policies on drugs and medical devices in Brazil.

Congratulations on a spectacular SALSS meeting. The presentations were top rate and there was a real feeling if openness and community that is not always present. I am very glad Karin introduced us and thank you for the invitation. You have created a wonderful community and I am delighted to join the very large Barbro fan club who are both inspired and in awe of your brilliance, your accomplishments and your charm and elegance!!

Stort tack för att jag fick förmånen att deltaga förra veckan. Det var ett nöje att få göra en presentation utav Nycomed i fredags och jag uppskattade mycket interaktionerna med de andra deltagarna. Båda jag och Åsa hade en fantastisk trevlig kväll på torsdagen och hoppas vi får möjlighet att vara med även i framtiden. Än engång hjärtligt tack.
Håkan Björklund
Chairman, Lundbeck

Bästa Barbro,
Stort tack för enastående SALSS dagar. Bill och jag knöt som vanligt viktiga kontakter och årets ämnen var ju som skräddarsydda för ACCESS. Utöver det rent affärsmässiga, var jag väldigt imponerad av den höga kvaliteten på både underhållning och mat. Stort tack till Dig och hela SALSS-teamet. På snart återseende.

Country Manager, ACCESS Health International Sweden

Barbro, Veronica and Jonas,
We really enjoyed SALSS 2013 in beautiful Stockholm! Thank you for making the conference a tremendous success – it is so very hard to get the program right from a content as well as entertainment perspective but you excelled on all fronts. We were struck by the extreme professionalism and dedication by you and your colleagues, as well as the enthusiasm you managed to instill throughout. Barbro, a special thanks to you for managing to create yet another miracle, and for being an inspiration to leaders and students across generations. Looking forward to next year!

Kära Barbro,
Tack för några fantastiska dagar i Stockholm. SALSS var ett av de bästa mötena jag har deltagit i på många år, det gäller allt från tema på seminarierna och presentationerna till arrangemangen runt omkring. Till detta kom alla fantastiska deltagare som Du hade lyckats att fånga för några dagar. Om jag förstod det rätt, hade de flesta deltagit om inte alla nio gångerna men näst intill. Ett stort tack till dig och dina medarbetare för några mycket inspirerande dagar!

Vice VD marknad- och affärsutveckling, Medicon Village

Dear Barbro and Veronica,
Thanks for organizing such an outstanding summit which I greatly enjoyed. The meeting format, venues, scientific and business sessions and not the least the amazing social program and networking opportunities- all was top notch and far beyond expectations. Again, thanks and best wishes for next year's summit!
