What Alumni Say About 10x

Nicholas Anderson Nic
I hope other conferences “drop the pretense” and let people be themselves like 10x does. We have more fun, want to stick around, and have better discussions.
Leonard Eisner 60601-1 IEC expert
INCREDIBLE is the word I use would describe it. I’ve never been to a conference where I made connections like this one. Nothing comes close to it and I really appreciate how you go out of the way to help everyone connect.
Jan Dugas Clinical
Thank you, Joe, for the superb conference, you are the BEST!! Learned so many new things, important challenges/opportunities, and products on the horizon. Couldn’t ask for more.
Raymond McCauley Singularity
Thanks again for a great time – access to your network is invaluable, but feeling like I’ve got a new professional family is even better.
Brett Goldsmith Nanomedical Diagnostics
The people you invited, the people you specifically pulled aside for us to meet, and the relaxed, collaborative tone of the conference were all excellent. We’ll absolutely be coming back next year.
Maren Nelson quality
It was the best conference I’ve attended, and I plan to be back next year. Maurizio Vecchione’s talk was inspiring, and several of the other presenters gave me perspectives on changes in medical devices I hadn’t considered. Thank you, Joe, for your attitude that keeps the conference fun, engaging, and constantly improving!
John Eckberg Cook
It just gets better and better. As soon as I got home, I realized I am never not going to go to 10x. From technology to trends, hard-won insights from panelists to challenges for the industry – this is a MUST ATTEND event.
