“"We were super impressed by the whole event, from the details around the marketing pre-conference, the amazing care and attention to detail from our respective panel leads Paul Rands and Leo Colgan, and the actual event itself. A very diverse mix of people and companies, and I know from our perspective we have made some superb connections for the future progression of Loopliv. All too often events like this are just a tick box, however for us, this really did feel like the people in attendance are genuinely aiming to make their respective sectors more progressive, and that has to be a positive for all concerned."Christine Young, Co-Founder and Director, LoopLiv
