Though this year NUCON was a Virtual Conference, the entertainment committee worked hard towards planning a fun event as we want our users and channel partners to kick-off the holiday season over Wine, Cheese, and Chocolates as we would be only couple of weeks away from the Thanksgiving. All the attendees were presented with a special gift pack keeping in mind the chills and thrills of the forthcoming festivals. Hence all the attendees were able to enjoy and welcome the festive season along with the entire office staff.
Not only this, iPatientCare NUCON 2014 attendees also enjoyed participating in iPatientCare Jeopardy and Lucky Draw conducted by the Entertainment Committee at iPatientCare.
And the Good News is iPatientCare’s Virtual Portal will be accessible to all the users throughout the year for sharing ideas, learning and collaborating with industry veterans and get in touch with the exhibitors available at the booths.
