- Excellent speakers and BEST is exceptional for networking opportunities.
- The keynote speakers were fantastic, the location for the conference was absolutely stunning.
- The size of the conference was really perfect for networking and there were multiple opportunities to do so. A very enjoyable and productive conference.
