She made a note of pivotal changes which have taken place in these 19 years. “Back then suppliers and distributors were searching for their pharmacies.

When you work with pharmacies it is very important to get the information in advance... There was a time when the exhibitions have almost lost their significance, but now they have recovered. There is a hunger for information and people are using rumors. Such events allow you to get all the necessary information firsthand ”.
