"You planned and executed a significant Summit addressing current issues in the Asia Pacific region and it was a privilege to be part of it. Thanks too for the excellent support team you had working in the background - they did a great job. Final thanks for the personal contributions you made in speaking in your area of expertise and study. It was eye-opening. It was the friendliest Conference/Summit I think I have attended and much of it was your personal relationship with many of the speakers and the tone that was set early on. A really huge effort but well worth it." (Hagar NZ)
"Excellent event. Congratulations Dr. Anita Abbott and team. You made a marvelous job and it was a pleasure to attend. Go on!" (Major General (Ret) Gert-Johannes Hagemann)
" Highly recommend for anyone interested in Asia-Pacific Security" (Minh, NZ)
"Excellent initiative, merits to be maintained on an annual basis. A huge variety of topics. Very good, horizon widening and eye opening. Good opportunity to increase the personal network. Very rich side-talks. Mix of representatives of nations, military, civil world and business, companies, to be sustained. Very comfortable location. Great support. Well done!! See you hopefully next year!"
" You put on an important and internationally significant summit. I was honoured to speak and share my Cyber Experience. As New Zealand matures in its understanding of Security you are going to need a bigger venue." (Cyber Toa, NZ)
" Great couple of days. I've learnt a lot. Excellent lunches. Wonderful staff..."
"Congratulations! An outstanding and very productive conference. It was an honor and privilege for me to speak. And it was a top opportunity to meet so many great people. I learned a lot. Thank you, Anita and team. Go for 2020!"
"The conference was really well-organised with some excellent content and great opportunities to network. All speakers had equal time which was great. Thank you so much".
"Excellent all around"
"Great range of speakers. I learnt a lot. What would be great would be a workshop or open discussion...."
"Great topics, great speakers, great food....see you next year!"
" You were phenomenal! Seriously. This is a great team. We will all do great things together!"
"The WG II was outstanding, congratulations to you and your team. You did a marvelous job.
I found the lectures highly interesting and inspiring and the speakers motivated and engaged. Of course it is a touchy subject if we talk about the delicate relationship of the various countries in the region, especially those with nuclear weapons, but it was more than worth to do it. I enjoyed every moment of this night !"
"What a privilege to be here!"
