Here’s what some of the delegates had to say:
The U2 conference exceeded my expectations. Intelligent and challenging conversation with diverse people in a supportive atmosphere! One of my favorite conferences to present and attend!

It was the first time I’ve attended the U2 conference and the experience was wonderful. I’m looking forward to attending again (or there could be a conference in Mexico City!)
— Helena Torres, 2018
Speaking as a serious lifelong U2 fan, the 2018 U2 Conference gave me “something I can feel!” As an experienced academic who has attended many conferences, I have never attended one that provided the same level of intellectual (and even spiritual) excitement.

The U2 Conference family is such a huge part of my tribe . . . it’s hard to put it into words. So grateful. Thank you.
— Lisa Marchal, 2018
The U2 conference was fantastic! I thoroughly enjoyed interacting with other U2 fans in an environment that was both academic and social. I was surprised how much I enjoyed the non-academic programming such as the talk by Andy Rowen and the band December’s performance. I learned so much from the speakers and will be incorporating much of what I learned into my U2 class this fall.
— Dave Whitt, 2018
This is NOT your father’s conference. First-rate speakers and topics that are about more than just being a fan. This fan knows trivia about the band, but arrives at each conference knowing she’ll learn about music theory, sociology, theology, politics, art, statistics, and more. Can’t wait for the next one!

Andy Rowen’s presentation was phenomenal and the highlight of the conference for me. Belfast was a stunning location–absolutely amazing city and area. It was (by far) one of the most memorable trips and enjoyable conferences I’ve ever attended.
