Pro Congress 2013 Award Handed to Trio of Professors

Professors Pekka Vallittu, Timo Närhi and Yrsa Le Bell received, along with the whole University of Turku Institute of Dentistry, the esteemed Pro Congress 2013 award. The congress industry merit award is annually dealt out by Finland Convention Bureau (FCB).

According to FCB Convention Director Leena Sipilä, the three recipient professors have organised three quality dentistry congresses during the last year, one of which drew as many as a thousand attendees.

The Turku University Institute of Dentistry has organised nearly 40 congresses between 1994 and 2012, attracting a total of 4 500 attendees. The congresses have brought five million euro to the Turku economic area and gained quite the reputation for the Institute.

The Institute of Dentistry is active and innovative in its research, which has resulted in international appreciation.

– The competition for attracting international scientific congresses is tough and the inviter’s scientific qualifications play a key role along with local infrastructure and the know-how of local congress industry professionals, says Sipilä.

– The staff at the University of Turku Institute of Dentistry are excellently equipped for international competition due to being experts in their fields of research. In addition, they’re internationally networked and part of several international scientific communities, adds Sipilä.
