"As a first time visitor to a TCT event I was most impressed by the whole
format, which embodied a wide range of users and suppliers of the techniques

consider the combination of exhibition and conference streams as a great
introduction to the developing range of technologies and methods and well
worth recommendation to a wider audience."
