“I enjoyed Amsterdam last year and this year in Berlin was just as energetic and the conference manages to get all the delegates actively participating and happy to engage. It is refreshing to attend an event where everyone is very happy to engage and share ideas and information freely, without being ego driven. There was a wealth of industry insight given by some really interesting shapers of the sector.
