What to expect Our previous conferences have been great successes - below are a few of your comments. We look forward to seeing you all again at this coming one!
Exceeded expectations. I was expecting a lot and got more - it's good to have access to good speakers and key personnel in the projects.
I flew all the way from Dubai for the conference and thoroughly enjoyed every presentation. It was an excellent weekend in a superb building with great biscuits.
I've been to every conference: I always expect to enjoy it, and I always do.
The event exceeded our expectation. We have an amateur interest in archaeology, mainly through television, and did have a concern that the event might be overly academic. This was not borne out, and we thought that all the speakers delivered interesting sets with Time Team presentation skills - and I mean that in a good way!
The organisers are to be congratulated for putting on a stimulating and wide-ranging programme.
Whole-Room View of the Beveridge Hall at Senate House during one of the sessions at CA Live!.  
It entirely lived up to my expectations. The venue was excellent; a magnificent art deco building. The awards ceremony and drinks reception (with nice pastries, rather than just crisps) - and the rock group - was an enjoyable way to close the first day.
It was my first attendance and I was highly impressed. The organisation was very smooth and professional, the content of excellent quality and superbly presented, the venue accessible and comfortable.
Excellent speakers and presentations. Also met up with old friends and made new ones - a friendly atmosphere.
Richard-Buckley-CA-Live Richard Buckley of University of Leicester Archaeological Services (ULAS) gives a talk on how his team discovered Richard III, and the archaeology behind it, during the CA Live! conference in 2013.  
Event was excellent value for money!
It was very interesting to hear current updated views from the contributors, all people qualified in their own disciplines. The event was well organised and gives one the opportunity to attend a centre where like-minded people can congregate and listen to current debate on topics.
AC8_6318-w Julian Richards (Meet the Ancestors) presents Phil Harding (Time Team) with the Archaeologist of the Year award, as part of the CA Archaeology Awards held during the evening reception on the Friday night each year.
Well-organised, well-run, and a superb range of speakers.
I have been to every conference since they began, and the range and variety of topics has been superb I can offer no improvements.
