Past Attendee Testimonial

"Thank you for once again organizing with such care and attention to detail this most enjoyable meeting. All the talks were so interesting and the venue was excellent. We got to enjoy being on the water in beautiful weather (did you arrange that too?), great food, and most importantly the most wonderful company. So grateful to be a part of it. Congratulations."
