What did the attendees say
Several quotes to express the experiences about the new way to connect:

- “Good presentation from speakers and the live talk discussion is very interesting”
- “Easily switch to different exhibitors, chat and follow during the day different live sessions (also on background during work)”
- Rob Schoones (Priva): “My compliments to the organization. I propose that next time you also just participate in the innovation award election. Nice to see how your life inspiring speakers from different countries tell their story”
- Pieter Vellekoop: “Ironically, during a ‘normal’ GreenTech I never managed to contact with so many nationalities within only 15 minutes. Thank you for this opportunity”.
