Well organized, great venue. Free parking and easy to get to by public transport. Lots of staff to help you out with questions. Well done!

Very good event with a pretty broad range of topics.

Sadly the red room is very noisy, it's very hard to understand the speakers because of the reverb.

Awesome conference with a wide range of talks... SugarCity is an amazing venue!

Enjoyed the event.

A few areas to consider for next time:

Venue looks cool, but as others say, the acoustics/sound system meant some speakers were hard to hear clearly.

Perhaps some were not used to speaking in such an environment and didn't speak clearly enough.

There seemed to be a lot of talks that were not very 'Laravel' in terms of content. Some of these subjects were not that well presented either and can be found in better form at other events.

It's ok to have some of these things to add interest and variety, but this is a Laravel conference and I don't think I saw many people type 'php artisan do something cool', apart of course from Taylor!

Lovely venue, although I miss the intimacy of BIM Huis. The acoustics of the Red Room are awful though, and it's to dark over there. Difficult to keep my eyes open.

Overal a Nice year! Thanks.

The red room wasn't helping us to hear the speaker.
I'm sharing Tim Hyde opinion, it was a laravel conference and there wasn't too much about laravel. There was some topics that even I didn't found them useful (considering the conference domain), there was badly presented.

I can say that last year was better that this year.

Beautiful location, well organized, enough food and drinks. But I did expect a bit more talks about Laravel itself, especially since 5.3 was just released.

Great venue, well positioned, the cross section of talks were diverse enough to cover every attendee. The Un-Conference room was a great addition, I gave the first talk to only a handful of people but from conversations over the 2 days the room proved to be very successful. I look forward to next year. Top Conference well done to Shaun and his team.

Great venue, great location and great organisation. Whoever found the venue deserves a clap on the back. The only negative was the acoustics in the red room but others have mentioned it so I'll leave it at that.

I like the idea of the Unconference but I think it wasn't made clear enough where it was / where to find the schedule. I only found out on the second day.

Hopefully it comes back in some form next time, but I think it might be better to reserve an hour or so each day on one of the tracks, and do two/three half hour sessions each day. A couple of the main talks felt a bit stretched and may have worked better as part of a group of Quick Fire talks alongside a couple of the unconference talks. It would also mean that they'd be shareable with the users who didn't see them.

Overall though great event.

Great event! Nice to see that you listened to your feedback from last year and introduced more technical talks this year.

The room for track #2 needed better sound and air (atleast the second day). People at the back had problems hearing the speakers.

The lunch system was a bit chaotic with everyone going into one line and expecting to get a little bit of everything. Posters would have helped to clearly show where the different food sections were.

- The acoustics of the Red Room was really bad.
- The Venue apart from that was bloody oh yeah!

I would love to have some organized code session things running during the event too.

The quiet room was nice to have, but maybe a wooden bench isn't the most awesome thing to sit on hacking.

Everything felt involving and the fact that one could dope up on coffee as much as one desires was really nice as well!
The lunch ran out quite quickly so I think it'd be a good idea to split the food stands up more to deal with the lines...

All in all the event as a whole was awesome and I'm going back until you won't run it anymore or if you begin to suck at it (which atm feels like a no-risk-scenario).
I wish it was one more day :-)

Last but not least - All of you organizers were really friendly and social.
Great work everybody!
