Default Congratulations to all GAC organisers

What a fantastic effort by all the GAC organisers. This was a superb convention with a stunning line up of speakers, and virtually perfect organisation. The venue itself is perfect for this kind of event and the convention centre staff always efficient. The food was excellent too. Additionally the gala dinner was a great night.

It is hard to imagine that this event could be improved on - it has certainly raised the bar for any future events.

I think we should all express our gratitude to all organisers, volunteers, the MCs and speakers (and anyone else that played a role in this event). Well done!!!!

I agree 100%. I thought it would have been difficult to surpass GAC 2010, but you guys managed it. Thanks to everyone who invested so much time and effort to put on such a great convention.

It looked as though it was working well even from the outside.

the effort in the organisation showed so strongly that it appeared that the convention ran itself with perfection beyond human ability..

Bravo, GAC committee.
4000+ cats herded just long enough to give them the best in contemporary reasoned thought, fantastic food and the company of 3999+ other freethinkers.
A huge effort.
Well done.
Matt
