Dear Colleagues

Thank you for joining us in Montréal, September 17-20, 2008 and for participating in the World Congress on Treatment and Research in Multiple Sclerosis, the first joint meeting of ACTRIMS (the Americas Committee on Treatment and Research in Multiple Sclerosis) and its counterparts in Europe and Latin America: ECTRIMS and LACTRIMS.

Webcasts and podcasts of select sessions are being phased in. Presentations for our late breaking news session, 10 teaching courses, and the 3 invited plenary lectures will all be available at no charge and are intended to allow you to review the material at your own pace, reinforce your learning, and help you pose new questions and seek further information.

Our initial review shows over 5,200 participants attended the congress. This was the largest single gathering of MS clinicians and researchers in 2008. Our 10 teaching courses, 3 plenary sessions, 10 parallel sessions, and 6 hot topics sessions drew large crowds, as did the 11 satellite symposia. The poster sessions – over 900 presentations – were well attended and the discussion was lively. Our late breaking news poster session of 11 select posters was "standing room only".

30 companies participated in our exhibition hall. These organizations provide a range of products and services important to clinicians, clinical researchers and basic scientists, whose work will ultimately benefit people affected by MS.

We also had an active press room, with over 50 representatives from online and print publications, worldwide. As of October 14, 2008, we have tallied over 500 stories appearing in print, broadcast and online media that cite information from the World Congress.

Sincerely,

Sincerely,
