I have found the summit to be very informative and useful for my business, an indie brand. The speakers have been great and I especially enjoyed the talks on the application of AI.

The summit was definitely worthwhile coming to and is very well-organised. In the future, I would perhaps like to see a focus on changes in regulations.

Anna Williams

I was attracted by the personalisation theme and have not been disappointed! I have found the presentations to be very helpful for my formulation company and was especially interested in the talks by Andy Postles and Vivienne Rudd.
