Stickers, stickers and more stickers. We’ve been handing out so many stickers that people refer to us as the « sticker men ». Okay, that’s not true, but it could be… Needless to say the promoting of the potential AM2018 Montreal is going very well. We even wrote a statement for the final plenary today, which was […]
