What Other Attendees Say

One of the things I really like about this conference is interactions between panelists, speakers and audience. We had so many discussion without any kind of barriers. This conference provides platform for a very open and interactive learning and networking.

The added value of attending Anno Lucis event here, is that you get an opportunity to interact with a lot of peers, people from different background.
Cees Werff
This conference was very welcoming from the start. People were keen to interact, to speak with each other and to learn more about each other’s background. A great atmosphere was created and I will happily come back to this type of event!
