Dear Friends,

thanks to your “never-ending faith” in GIMBE and its staff, once again we had a great Conference!

Sicilian land with its perfumes, colours, food and wines always creates the “ideal frame” of the Conference. By leaving Taormina, we hope you take home in your (not lost) luggage, the unforgettable days we spent together.

I am happy and proud of our “worldwide family” that – other than developing and spreading EBHC know-how & knowledge – looks forward to meeting, dining, wining and laughing.

Well, thanks to you for being part of this “terrific EBHC group”, from all five continents.
So now, it is time to launch a call of interest to the rest of the planets, and why not… outside the Solar System!

Looking forward to meeting you at 5th EBHC International Conference Sicily.
October, 28th – November 1st, 2009

Arrivederci from Zio Nino, Elena, Annamaria, Paola, Angela, Deborah & Marco
and…best wishes from Giusy, Gioacchino, Salvo & Antonio

Thank you to all of you for a fantastic conference – the best organised conference I have been to.

Madelon Finkel (USA)
Dear Nino and all who helped make this conference terrific
I think that this year's conference was the best ever and look forward to working on planning for 2009.
Many thanks for all your assistance in finding the lost luggage!
Many thanks for planning such a wonderful event.
Warm wishes, Madelon.

PS you will not believe this: Alitalia LOST our luggage AGAIN from Catania to Roma. Fortunately they managed to find it just in time for us to pick it up before our flight to Doha. Just amazing how sloppy they are. Oh well. All's well that ends well!

Just like a dream but you left us with wonderful memories of you, the Conference and Taormina.
Thanks to your efforts. You are one of the greatest teams I've ever met.
You should be very proud of yourselves and of your achievements. Thanks a lot.
BTW, the dream is not over. It is the beginning.

Thanks again for a FANTASTIC conference. I came away with loads of ideas, having met some wonderful people and having seen a beautiful part of the world for the first time - what more can you ask for?

Dear Nino,
Sorry for the late email - I've only just returned home to Australia after the conference and an extended holiday in Europe. I just wanted to thank you and all of your wonderful staff for a fabulous conference. Your staff were truly wonderful, from the moment that they picked me up at the airport, during the entire conference and of course on departure. I would also like to thank the scientific committee for a great 'intellectual' experience. Personally I benefited greatly from the presentations and working groups that were available. I think that it's a sign of a great conference when we as delegates are wanting to go to more than just one theme group. Thank you also for organising a great social experience. I think the opportunity to network is extremely important and it was made that much more pleasant with the dinners were organised. Finally, Nino, thank you for being such a fabulous host! I look forward to seeing you all again at the next conference. In the meantime, if there is anything that I can do to help, particularly from a scientific viewpoint, for the next conference please feel free to contact me.
Best wishes.
