There were 2,108 delegates, 531 exhibitors, 132 staff, 148 speakers, 40 members of the press, 20 volunteers and others, including bloggers who have been affected by diabetes.During the three days hundreds of people used our Twitter hashtag #dpc16 to comment on the conference.We’ve pulled together some of the best bits from social media in Storify, below, to give everyone a flavour of what went on.
