" What a wonderful Optical Summit that the OAC put on for us. Many high-quality conferences were available. Inspirational, that’s the word that spontaneously comes to mind. Returned home with a head filled with ideas and innovations. Taking advantage of an opportunity like that weekend where everybody was there, just at ease…. No one trying to impress anyone. Thanks to everyone for the great work."
