“As a guest speaker it gave me great encouragement and a sense of positivity that there is such engagement during and after the presentation. The track room was close to full and attendees were very open and willing to participate. Being from a non-specific lighting technology in 3D printing there was still a very big interest which displayed to me a high level of innovative engagement. Thanks to the organizers it was great to be a participant.” – Darragh Fitzpatrick, R&D Product Development, Henkel
