(This is The Thank You note read during Inauguration ceremony)
Greetings from Agra,
The arduous work done in the past two years has ushered to this glorious and grand conference and for this turnout I have a long list of people who have to be thanked so please bear with me.
I’d like to thank the people of the GBM, Noida for entrusting with me the responsibility of this conference. My colleagues, Local organizing committee and Central Organizing committee, who always stood beside me even in the hardest of the days, have made this conference what it appears today. Besides capable support the other most important thing is money, and for that I would like to thank our generous trade partners. I am grateful to Insignia, our publication partners, who has provided us with quality publications. Such a grandeur congregation can never be a success without the involvement of media, so thank you all media persons.
This year we undertook a research “Epidemiological Survey on Osteoarthritis in India”. This was a very big step towards enhancing research in our field. I extend my wholehearted gratitude to the surveyors, participants and everyone who supported the cause. The PCO, TCI, worked day and night to make sure that this event is a success and so they are worthy of accolade. I am thankful to Grover A/V services, our A/V partner, GSK, our fabricator, and Trumet, our digitalization partner. I am indebted to the support staff, especially the office guard who kept wide awake till 3 in the morning while we all worked in the office and the person who stayed with us providing us tea and coffee every 15 minutes and kept us awake. Who wouldn’t rush to the washroom after having tea so regularly?
Thank you, Delegates and all IOA officials for coming to this conference. Your mere presence has fulfilled the purpose of this congress. I’d like to thank the city administration for ensuring smooth functioning of this conference. Hotel Jaypee has been very supporting and is a perfect venue for this type of congress. I am also thankful to the management of Kalakriti for organizing mesmerizing shows for our delegates.
I am grateful to everyone present here for bearing with the long list and don’t worry, I am just finishing. The last but the greatest thanks goes to my family who put up with me coming late at night pardoned me for forgoing the weekly ice-cream and leisurely trip to sadar.
We have started uploading inputs of IOACON2013. Please help me in improving the deficiencies during the conference with your constant feedbacks and suggestions.
