FAQs or Difficult Questions

We should be prepared to answer a range of questions and in particular, we should anticipate having to substantiate any claims we have made in any of our posters, slides, brochures etc. Questions and answers should be added in this section such that once read and 'correctly' answered, any of us should be able to respond if left on our own in the booth. Please either add your input here or mail to
