“[…] In particular, the panels I moderate at EIC always seem to sparkle a bit more, to have more content and to be just a bit more interesting than those in other venues. Maybe it’s the panelists themselves but more likely its a combination of them and the very engaged audiences. Whatever the reason, this is a conference I can recommend to anyone in IdM whatever your skill level, specialty or location.”

“A wonderful and informative event, well run and useful in so many ways.”
