Statements from our Participants

Thank you for organizing such an inspiring conference with many interesting and diverse speakers. It was a real great pleasure for me to take part in these two days of conference.

I wanted to make sure I tell you that I appreciated how well you had organised the event. It is a challenge to have last minute changes and this was a huge change. I think you managed to keep the sessions short and interesting enough so that people could enjoy the two days and avoid the zoom fatigue.

The event organization was really impressive and the result very excellent. I had never participated in a two-days on-line event and I thought I could not be possible to stay on line that long. Congratulations!

A new conference standard for virtual conferences. I was thrilled, everything went great and the quality was excellent as always. I think this is the basis for thinking about a hybrid form of conference, but also about possible additional purely virtual day or half-day formats. The best thing were random coffee trials, so you really had contact with more participants and by excluding 1on1 conversations, there was more input and discussion during the breaks.

Barbara Kuhn 

Messe Frankfurt

The conference was very divers, with  many interesting themes and speakers so that the program was very divers.

I liked especially the workshops before the conference, because it gives you the opportunity to endeepen your insight on the themes. Overall I really liked the pleasant and open atmosphere at the conference.

This event is very much interactive, with Q&A and comments sharing after each speech, panel discussions, and action-creation activities to discuss the topics the participants voted. So much fun!

 The most important thing about this conference is that there are a lot of experts who exchange their ideas and views, because you can always learn something from another industry and can hopefully also share something from your own industry.

The most important thing I learned here was that there is so much knowledge about CI out there and it is great to build these connections because collectively it helps all of us to take CI to the next level within our own organizations.
