“The field trip was the best part of the conference, it’s rare that a conference includes a field trip. Well worth the learning experience and time, I appreciate the effort of the organizers.”

“I found the presentation sessions very helpful to learn more about what companies are doing and perhaps where gaps exist in commercialization support.”

“I was able to connect the dots between a wide range of topics. A good mix of industry, academia, policy to develop a full perspective which is what we need for a new emerging industry.”
