'Everything was efficient and made it so easy for busy people - we could rely on information coming through at the right time and the venue was great for the station. Non-stop drinks/food is a lovely treat! Very useful to have the pre conference reading material. I learnt a few things on my way to the venue as I had time to read them on the train.'

'Plenty of time between sessions to meet other delegates and swap ideas. Keynote speaker 1 was very informative.'
