elmi2024: Huge thanks to all our attendees and sponsors!

RMS reflects on fantastic week in Liverpool

The RMS would like to thank everyone who attended elmi2024 in Liverpool last week, for making it such a special event for the Light Microscopy community.

Against the backdrop of the city's iconic Albert Dock, more than 640 people came to ACC Liverpool for the latest instalment of the popular meeting series - featuring a fantastic blend of talks, workshops and exhibitors, plus plenty of opportunities for networking.

The event is regarded by hundreds of scientists and developers as an essential fixture in the light microscopy calendar, and elmi2024 certainly lived up to expectations.

RMS Chief Executive Sali Davis said: "We are so grateful to the Light Microscopy community for supporting this event, and ensuring a truly memorable week for everyone in attendance. The enthusiasm and energy of participants was palpable from start to finish, and I really hope everyone enjoyed themselves in Liverpool.

"I would like to thank everyone involved in making the event such a success - from our speakers, workshop presenters, exhibitors, and other delegates, to our dedicated volunteers and the RMS team for helping things run as smoothly as possible during the meeting. I would also like to give special thanks to our team of Scientific Organisers and of course, our generous sponsors, without whom none of this would have been possible."
