Where do you see the industry in the next 10 years?

In the last years, the medical laboratories that deal with the production of products for vascular and venous diseases in particular have suffered a very important financial crisis.
I think that if the laboratories are not robotized and updated in technology appropriate for research, the contributions for the congresses of the specialty will be diminishing over the years.
These facts have been felt for two or three years, especially in the economic contribution to phlebology and Angiology.
Why are you excited about participating in UIP2018?

The Congress of the UIP is the most important of the specialty and includes the presentation of papers by doctors from all over the world. Is directed also by Prof. Kurosch Parsi who is one of the most important specialists in the world.
