It was my first meeting with EPIC and I now understand the value for my and other organizations in being an EPIC member. I was very pleased with the accommodation, attendees, talks, and discussions and found it very informative and fruitful and I will definitely further exchange with some companies on this topic. I am looking forward to upcoming events in the future.
