I had a great experience this year. The, the content of the talks was great, but I think I got the most value out of the opportunities to network and meet people that came through. not just the speaker and VIP receptions, but also some of the the the sponsored sessions and the opportunities to sort of walk the floor and, and chat with people. It was a really great experience, I think in large part because of all of the people I had the opportunity to meet.

Overall, it was a great experience that I think the, the venue and how it provided opportunity for everyone to kind of connect, learn different things. get a, a global, get a a local regional experience, you know. it was really enjoyable, I think it was a great event. A lot of activities, a lot of great speakers, A lot of great presentations, the only downside or I say the negative would be, I think of having both the, the speaking sessions and the Expo hall on the same place. It made it very, very loud and sometimes it can be very hard to hear the speakers or if you're speaking or on a pat on the stage, it's very hard to hear each other. So I think that was the the only negative.

Great Networking and Learning Opportunity!
What did you like best about the event?
Well-organized despite the long lines and great informational sessions, and the event hall is extremely impressive.
What could the organizers do to improve the event?
The badge printing process caused me a bit of a challenge - my pass never got printed, so it took me 15 minutes with customer service.

The crowd and the environment were amazing, and I could not have wished for a better.

It was an enjoyable conference, and I appreciated its support of its hacker roots with Arsenal and briefings.
What did you like best about the event?
It is getting to network with a wide swath of different security practitioners across many other industries.
What could the organizers do to improve the event?
Arsenal presenters not being able to set up ahead of time if they were in the first slot was frustrating.

Great opportunity to network and meet people
What did you like best about the event?
I love seeing so many industry trends laid out (and playing out) in one concentrated area (the expo floor) and the opportunity to talk to people I have worked with in the abstract and meet new people in person. I also really liked the speaker reception; it was great to meet people with the same experiences and anxieties I had and cheer each other on.
What could the organizers do to improve the event?
I wish the expo floor were a little easier to navigate without a specific booth number and that there were more places to hang out and relax because those provide places to meet people organically—also, more opportunities to get snacks between meals.
