Thank you to Saša Radić and the Croatian Association of Occupational Therapists for all their great work behind the scenes before and during the conference. The contributions of the organising committee and the volunteers (made up of local students, teachers and clinical practitioners) added so much to the smooth running of the whole occasion.
