Delegates participated in a total of 270 twenty minute, one-to-one meetings.  To let their hair down, they enjoyed on-site massage chairs, plenty of beer and wine, beach volleyball, hundreds of oysters and lots of rib-eating and bib-wearing!  Delegates polled on-site by truRating gave the event an overall score of 8.2/9. 

We hope you'll be able to join us next time and look forward to seeing you in 2017!
