The six coaches who attended with Technical Development Manager Stephen Aboud were Anthony Foley, Brian Walsh, Jeremy Davidson, Terry McMaster, Nigel Carolan and Andy Wood.
In addtion, Ireland Under-20 coach Mike Ruddock and Ireland head coach Declan Kidney delivered key note presentations to the conference.
Former Ireland strength & conditioning coach Paul Pook also delivered a presentation at the conference in Rovigo.
