I have been to numerous events over the years and this was be far the best one I can remember. The structure, venue and content was great.
Wonderful event, one of the best I have been to. Focused on IBM Notes/Domino and Connections. Just what I want.
Theo (and team) did it again ! A very professional conference, with a great value for me as a Customer!
My first Engage, and despite the long travel distance for me, hopefully not the last.
It's a privilege to be able to attend Engage and this year was, most probably, one of the very best out there!!
Awesome event, for sure an organizational masterpiece. Excellent! It's hard to believe the Engage staff is not organizing conferences as principal job ;-)
It was the best event I attended so far. And I attend about 5-8 each year!
2nd time for me attending Engage, but it was incredible again! 2 days packed with extremely informational content, a great venue and a great community!
We did more business and collected more leads during Engage 2017 in Antwerp, than at IBM Connect in San Francisco.
As a first-timer I didn't really know what to expect. The organization of the event positively surprised me!
A premiere event that rivals anything produced by any other organization. Great job...AGAIN!!!
It's a treat to always keep coming back for more! Well done, once again, and look forward to the 10th edition next year!
It is mind boggling to see two people create an event that rivals those put on by larger vendors with dozens of resources.
And huge thanks to Theo and the others for giving me my first international speaking engagement!
Theo is a legend, Theo has style. And he is putting together the best event in this space, year after year.
Engage was my first UG as a speaker and it has developed into arguably the premier user group for ICS in Europe.
Yet again a brilliantly done event. One that is used as the yard-stick by which all other user group events are measured.
Theo and Hilde did it again: Engage was bigger than last year, venue was impressive and the event most successful.
It was a pleasure, due to the efforts of Theo his team, the sponsors, the location and the participants. Much appreciated!
I was extremely impressed on all levels. Thank you to Theo Heselmans for the opportunity to speak at this event!
I’ve been to several of the past Engage conferences and Theo always puts on a great event but this was better than ever.
What can one say about this Engage, Eindhoven, NL. It is in fact THE European user group meeting,...
Theo Heselmans has raised the bar yet again as to what can be achieved with organizing an IBM User Group event.
