AIM Group International organizes the 11th World Congress of Psycho-social Rehabilitation boasting record attendance

Despite limited financial resources, the 11th World Congress of Psycho-Social Rehabilitation, held at Milan’s Fiera Milano City (MICO) from 10 to 13 November, registered a record number of participants compared to the previous editions, with the presence of 1,450 delegates from more than 70 countries around the globe. 

The event, held for the first time in Italy, was sponsored by WAPR (World Association for Psycho-social Rehabilitation) and organized by the Milanese branch of AIM Group International, a company specialising in events organization.

“The organization of this event has been an exciting challenge – commented Angelo Barbato, President of the congress. "In the midst of a severe economic crisis, in one of the most affected European countries, the WAPR congress managed to make its way without – or almost without – commercial contributions. It is all due to the various players in psycho-social rehabilitation that the creation of a stimulating scientific programme was made possible: more than 750 abstracts received, more than 500 accepted and represented in the various sessions and in the poster area. A congress package that can be defined “austere” if measured from a point of view of “packaging” but “rich” if evaluated from a point of view of the exchange of ideas and networking”.

Despite the limited budget, the collaboration and joint efforts between the organizing committee, the scientific secretariat and the organizing secretariat meant that not only were high-quality technical-scientific results obtained but that “extras” could also be added, including theatrical performances and a photographic exhibition on mental illness presented through images.
