I feel you did an amazing job with this conference. I believe this can be taken to the next level in the coming years and in making it THE conference for the F&B industry. The participants were amazing professionals with great knowledge and sharing attitude.

I have participated in many conference keynotes around GCC over many years and I can identify where and which event was done well and from which aspect. I think this conference was done very well today from multiple aspects and you deserve a huge pat on the back. Well done Vishal!
I enjoyed my time on the stage and from the various feedback, I realized that the audience felt the same! Time very well spent for me. Thank you!
