FACT Celebrates 20th Anniversary at 2016 ISCT Regional Meeting

Posted in :: 2016 Volume 2 :: Wednesday, October 12th, 2016

FACT continues to celebrate its 20th year as the leading organization in standards setting and accreditation for cellular therapy, hematopoietic stem cell transplantation, and regenerative medicine. Special events highlighted FACT’s achievements at the 2016 ISCT North America Regional Meeting.

In addition to a successful cellular therapy and cord blood inspection and accreditation workshop, FACT welcomed visitors to an active exhibit booth. Attendees wearing their commemorative FACT 20th anniversary pin received small gifts and were entered in a daily drawing.  Day one’s theme was FACT Fortune Friday. Participants received a FACT fortune cookie and registered to win a Logitech Wireless Keyboard.  Day two was deemed FACT Saturday School Trivia.  Participants answered FACT trivia questions and registered to win an Amazon TV Fire Stick.  On day 3, participants enjoyed taking selfies at the booth on Selfie Sunday, and entered to win a Microsoft Band 2 Activity Tracker.  FACT thanks everyone who stopped by the exhibit booth and congratulates the lucky winners!

FACT also hosted a 20th Anniversary reception at the Peabody Memphis Hotel. Many FACT colleagues, volunteers, and friends enjoyed hors d’oeuvres and drinks as FACT celebrated two decades of working together in the community to improve patient care and safety.  Guests enjoyed watching a short video highlighting FACT’s past 20 years, and saw some familiar faces who have been an integral part of FACT since its beginning. Click on the gallery below to view full-size photos of the celebrations.
