Conference Logo Concept

The inverted iceberg emblem directly refers to the motto "Making the invisible visible".

The submerged and hidden part of the iceberg is now on the surface and, therefore, visible. This symbol represents one of the main objectives of the conference: shining the light on and joining cause with thousands of children with Spina Bifida, Hydrocephalus and other birth defects and their families, who are deprived of proper medical care and guidance.

The colours used for the logo are in line with the natural colours of an iceberg.
