More than one third of participants provided their feedback through an online evaluation survey and the results speak for themselves:
  • 88 % of delegates stated the scientific programme of the conference as their main reason for attending;
  • more than 90 % of respondents rated speakers as excellent, very good or good;
  • more than 80 % rated the ‘overall impression’ of the conference as excellent or very good, which explains why 85 % of respondents would recommend LxAddictions to others!
