I just held two talks in Antwerp, Belgium, for TechDays and it was really nice. First the Belgian team did a fantastic work welcoming the speakers, and as far as I could say, the attendees were also taken care of in an exemplary way. We had just a small incident (there was a power breakdown about 15 minutes before my show and the whole center went black), but noone panicked and it was taken care of with a lot of care. We started the sessions only 15 minutes late on the last day. Everyone stayed calm. I also want to especially mention the technical teams who were simply AMAZING. Such a great work. Before my first session, the technician called my mobile to tell me that he was available and I could go to the room if I wanted. Once there, they totally made me feel at home, were efficient, polite and interested, and even gave feedback after the talk. I would work again with such a team any time!!
