"Elekta is committed to continuing its 18-year tradition of thanking our customers - and this year will give all of us a chance to celebrate with a purpose," said Jay Hoey president and CEO of Elekta North America. "Since the party is on Halloween, costumes are encouraged and everyone should expect the same spirit of fun, camaraderie and entertainment they've grown accustomed to in years past."
