“OUTLOOK™ is a very exceptional conference because it leaves enough room for networking. A lot of people come here specifically to talk to people, as it’s a good mix between excellent panel discussions and networking opportunities. There are not many conferences out there that have that opportunity. I learned a lot and spoke to people that I only knew through email"
Dr Taryn Kirsch, Senior Toxicologist at Procter & Gamble - 2022

“The feedback I collected from people in the hallways is definitely about the importance as an industry to address the concerns that we all have together, ensuring that during events like OUTLOOK™ we pick up on these topics and make them a discussion point for us."
Achim Schalk, Executive Vice President and General Manager EMEIA at Berry Global - 2022
