Leica Biosystems

Leica Biosystems approached Maximillion to support a scientific symposium for key European clients. The “Advanced Staining Seminar” targeted specific pathologists from within Europe and was designed to improve customer understanding of the latest developments, technologies and products that Leica Biosystems has to offer.

With guests travelling from France, Benelux, Spain, Greece, Germany and Austria to attend the seminar, Leica Biosystems was keen to enhance the experience with an overnight incentive event.
