After the CGS show that was held back in 2010 in Boston, we have gotten a lot of mail and people visiting us with the question when will be the next similar show. Well, unfortunately, we cannot give you an exact answer because we didn’t think about making a second Consumer Genetics Show. However, because of the great interest that we got and the positive feedback from the first show, we are planning a second one.
As mentioned, we don’t have any details when it happens, but we can say that it has a possibility of happening shortly. Of course, this was the answer for everyone that was asking us, but that didn’t make them happy, and because of that we decided to write this short article where we will be talking about the first Consumer Genetics Conference and mention some of the highlights of that event. This way we hope that we can at least satisfy some of our clients.
One of the highlights for us that we didn’t expect to see at all was the number of visitors that showed up at this conference. When we first got the idea of creating this conference we thought that maybe just a few people would be interested at first. Then when we started creating and organizing everything, we realized that people were interested in attending the show. However, we never, not even once thought that we would have so many people come and see us and listen to our presentations. This was the highlight of that night for us, and that is all thank you. We needed to take a couple of days break after the first show because we couldn’t get ourselves together, we were that shocked by the number of visitors that we had, there were even people hanging out on the roof.
One of the biggest highlights for our visitors was the part of the conference where we were talking about the importance of our process and explaining how it works. After the show was over, we have gotten a lot of requests from people who wanted to talk with us privately about the process part because they were so interested in it. Unfortunately, we were not able to do any of those requests because were exhausted after that conference and we still had some interview to give out. However, if we create this show once again, we will make sure to cover the process part and make everything much more detailed. That way, we hope there will be no more people with questions. After all, our mission and goal of these conferences are to educate people about the thing that we do, and that is genetic research.
