Wow, these are only getting better. Almost 200 delegates attended the 2014 conference, with a wide range of excellent papers presented over the 3 days.
All of the awards this year were presented to the worthy winners after a record number of applications were received. The judging was very close in all categories.
The winners from the left:
- John Beale: Best operators paper.

- Russell Warlow: Operator of the year.
- Doug Drinkwater: Best trade paper.

Congratulations to all
