EuRA Conference – April 20 – 22 2016, Malta
This year’s EuRA Conference hosted no less than 650 delegates from 64 countries and three territories around the world. Despite the beautiful weather and surroundings delegates could be found in back-to-back meetings throughout the week. It was standing room only at most of the talks, sessions and addresses under this year’s theme “Social Values: Better Business”. And after a long day’s work delegates were able to let their hair down at Thursday’s Cocktail & Gala Dinner and the Friday Night Closing Party. The Charity Auction raised a record-breaking €25,000 for local organisation “The Inspire Foundation”. Event photos can be found here.
