Senior Principal Engineer
Great meeting of innovation minds sharing challenges and ways to cope with the ever changing world, and influence and exploit new technologies to maximize effectiveness of our companies!
Research & Development Senior Director & Technology Platforms Master
FEI is a great forum to focus the mind on innovation for a few days with people who are the same, yet different. Most of all, I learned more about myself as an innovator - and that should be invaluable to any company that truly values, and wants to drive a culture conducive to innovation.

FEI is absolutely necessary for seeing future trends in innovation. The industry is getting more and more fragmented, so having a conference like this to navigate the complexity is worth every penny in my opinion. It's one of the most powerful ways to stay ahead of competition and stay relevant and creative in our offerings.

Being a corporate innovator can be tough, and isolating. At FEI, I've found my tribe--and an annual dose of inspiration and excitement. See you all next year!
