"Another great conference, thank you Marietta and Maria for organising this event.
I always learn a lot from these conferences, and I love the fact that I don't have to miss out because they always seem to be on Sunday's, and I work Sundays so I can always watch the recorded conference at a later date in the comfort of my own home and I don't have to go anywhere which also saves time. It's great that I can play back sections if I need to"

"Love the Aqua Immersion Conference. You can never learn too much. Yes, we have to earn our CEC's but, it is so important to remind ourselves of what and how we can teach effectively. But also, new ideas and techniques. Thank you so much for creating this event for aqua instructors"
- Vanessa Roe
"What a variety of topics are presented at the MGM Aqua Immersion Conferences! Not only do I get great ideas for choreography, but also crucial information and practical solutions on how to look after my mind and body as a fitness professional. All the sessions in the past have helped me to develop my teaching skills further. Marietta and Maria always find the best presenters and relevant topics in the aqua industry. I am really looking forward to the next Conference which I can attend virtually and still interact with other instructors. How cool is that!"
