Q4Live was an inspiring conference. I appreciated the heavy inclusion of networking time, intimate inclusion of friendors, and the story-telling format of each speaker. This is clearly an elite group of producers/vendors who understand the value of connecting with like-minded business owners and partners, and all of us came with a similar value prop: our success is based on the success of our clients.

This thing is family. You leave with friends. We all learn because everyone feels comfortable enough to drop their guard and talk about problems they've encountered and solved. You guys have created that environment.

Paul Wilson Editor-in-Chief

Always a fan of the content you feature and the collaborative and welcoming environment you provide! Plus, the team is made up of great people.

The agenda was engaging, relevant and thought-provoking. I cannot imagine someone in that room would not walk away with a different perspective, at the very least. I was inspired again. Thank you to your outstanding work in collaboration and bringing us all together.

Great content, great people, and attention to detail! It may not seem like a big deal...but I appreciate being able to EAT at a conference I'm attending. That's not always possible sadly. We always level up whenever we attend Q4live.
