''another great advantage of the ESRA congress is that all people that are giving lectures or workshops are very passionate about sharing their knowledge. And they're very approachable so I would urge the young anaesthesiologist to talk to these people and learn from their experience‘’

'If you really want to dedicate yourself professionally to regional anesthesia and you want to meet the best experts and you want to learn about the newest developments there is no better platform than ESRA in Europe. Maybe the world.‘’

''The main reason I would come if I was early career anesthetist is because of the variety of the sessions so they can go to a session with a world leader on a specific subject or they can go to a lecture which is an update on how to do a particular type of block and bring you right back to the basics''
