Over 130 delegates attended the ADI Conference in Barcelona from 27 to 29 July 2012. Delegates represented 56 ADI members programs from 18 different countries.
The conference also linked up for one half day with delegates from the Canine Science Forum Conference – held at the same venue just before the ADI event. The joint session focused on how practical assistance dog programs can link with research institutes to strengthen the case for the impact that assistance dogs have on the lives of people with disabilities. This is critical if more people around the world are to benefit from having an assistance dog in the future.
A series of presentations and workshop sessions were held during the conference. Excellent networking occurred as always and delegates had the opportunity to share good ideas and best practice with other colleagues from around the world.
The presentations from the conference will shortly be available – watch this space for more information.
