80+ Sessions. Antwerp was an amazing host. More than 90 speakers, 40 of them IBM Champions. Ed Brill, Ann-Marie Darrough, Jason Roy Gary, Huguette Ranc, Peter D'Haeyer and Luis Guirigay joined us during the keynote.
This time we were at the brand new, and at the same time 19th century Elisabeth Center Antwerp
aka 'Flanders Meeting & Convention Center Antwerp'.
Right in the city center, next to the Central Station.
A huge thank you to everyone attending:
YOU made it a success!
