attendees loved it

Don’t take our word for it. See what people said about FactualWEST.

“We fell in love with this event, with Vancouver, and with the attendees. Everything was perfectly organized and so personal.  I have done many events and never have I felt so welcome and appreciated.” 
Tim Crescenti | Small World IFT

“I wanted to take the time to tell you all how fantastic I thought your FACTUALWEST event was on Saturday. I was really impressed by the venue, the presenters, and the food! It was also heartwarming to see so many talented directors, writers, and editors networking and getting inspired. The factual community in Vancouver is really benefiting from this event and an organization like Field & Post.”

I just wanted to send a note to say congratulations on throwing such an amazing event this weekend. I can’t believe how brilliant the lectures I attended were, and the networking event afterwards provided such a nice, relaxed atmosphere.
