  • This was my first time attending the BUTEX conference and I thought it was EXCELLENT. Most of the sessions were very relevant to my current work and I gained many new ideas to take away and try to implement at my own institution. We have a number of UK partners so it was also helpful to meet up with them in a more relaxed environment.
  • Excellent conference. Plenty of choice of sessions and really interesting mix of people.
  • Great mix of sessions & delegates to promote an informal but very valuable space for ideas exchange.
  • This was my first BUTEX conference and I have to say it exceeded my expectations! Well organised; great sessions; & fun networking opportunities.
  • I thought the conference was extremely well arranged with a good selection of sessions providing helpful information and insights.
