The venue was okay, though it was a little far from the City Centre and was somewhat tricky to travel to and from at late hours using public transit.

Registration was super quick and easy. There were always a decent number of staff available to ask questions/clarification and they communicated well and were very helpful for the most part. However, I do wish that there had been maps posted/available and more program booklets given out/available.

The line for the coat check was abominable - it could have been much more efficient, but people were waiting to check coats for over 30min - over an hour.

Unfortunately, I thought that half of the workshops I attended left much to be desired. For example, the workshops with Daniel/Desiree and Ataca/Alemana were almost less than helpful as there were soo many people in such a large space that I was unable to see or hear any of the instruction well (even with the screens, as I'm rather short and couldn't see over others' heads), and there wasn't even enough room to properly execute any of the patterns/moves as there were so many people that we were practically stepping on each other (I was stepped on a few times, as well as bumped by elbows, hands, etc.). Furthermore, during a Dominican Footwork workshop I was unable to learn anything because - even though the instructors were set up on a stage - I was unable to see their footwork because they never rotated lines and I was stuck at the back. One pair of instructors I attended also didn't explain things very well. However, on the other hand, I found several of the other instructors to be incredibly engaging and inspiring and to be very good.

The 5 social rooms were okay and decently well ventilated/air-conditioned considering, and the sound quality was okay. However, I did think that the choices in music could have been better and there maybe could have been better if there were a few chairs in the Venezia room. The level and quality of dancing was great at the socials and the ratios were relatively good so that there didn't appear to be many people being left out at any given time.
