So after months of work, weeks of stress and days of build up, Employee Benefits Live 2013 came and went in a flash on 25 and 26 September.
It is always a thrill to see the whole employee benefits industry come together for 48 hours to network, learn, sell and be inspired.
Although I am sure we all (visitors, exhibitors and organisers) reach the end of the event exhausted, there must be some part of us that leaves enthused about what we have achieved (and all the new work we are going to do as a result).
So I would like to use this opportunity to say a very big thank you to all our sponsors, exhibitors, speakers, chair people and experts for support in creating this event.
I would also like to thank the whole Employee Benefits Live team (which pulls together teams from across Centaur) for their dedication to excellence to achieve a smooth-running (or as smooth as possible, given the complexity) event.
This was our 15th annual Employee Benefits Live and many people attending this year have supported us for years so a special thanks to you too.
Watching the industry, and its people, grow in importance since our first event in 1999 has been wonderful.
So here’s a toast to the 2013 Employee Benefits Live.
And bring on the 2014 one.
