Really great conference. I liked the format and the size. Small enough that conversations were not difficult to initiate but large enough that there were a really great list of attendees from a broad range of topics (all with the theme of quantum technologies of course).

This was really a very good event. The organisation was excellent, professional and efficient. The mix of speakers was very interesting. The location on the waterfront was a great backdrop for the meeting.
