57th Annual Meeting 2014

Dear colleagues and friends, the Puerto Rico Society of Microbiologists has the pleasure of inviting you to our interesting 2014 Annual Meeting, to be held at the Verdanza Hotel’s Grand Ballroom (2nd level). Our Exhibitors will be located at the Aria Room and 2nd level’s foyer.

We are looking forward to share with you in this luxurious and comfortable property, conveniently located only 7 km (4.4 mi) from the center of Carolina. Nearby places of interest include: Luis Muñoz Marín Intl. Airport (SJU), Museo de Arte Contemporáneo de Puerto Rico, Museo de Arte de Puerto Rico, Centro de Bellas Artes Luis A. Ferré. It is only steps away from Isla Verde’s beautiful beaches and tasteful kioskos.

In Verdanza, “verde” stands for the Spanish word for green, making reference to its location in Isla Verde and evoking the green lushness which characterizes our Island and the hotel’s commitment to the environment. “Danza” isan artistic

expression from our Puerto Rican culture and heritage: a richly melodic and harmonious musical genre that for centuries has articulated our heart and soul. Come and enjoy this experience with us, while sharing the latest information in Food Microbiology with our distinguished lecturers. Your valued presence will add to our Meeting’s SUCCESS!!!
