And more from our event:

We had delegates from different cities in Río Negro, Neuquén, Chubut, and...Salta!!

As it's become now a tradition, we enjoyed a lovely dinner at Jauja Restaurant where we had a chance to meet old and new friends and think about other events for 2015. We'll keep you posted!

On the last day of the conference we raffled one free registration for APIZALS 2015 and one free registration for FAAPI 2015 in Córdoba. The lucky winners were Cecilia Macchi and Carola Ganuza respectively. Congrats!!
