What others are saying

  • The convention at Kamloops was extraordinary in how lively and engaged the attendees were and the diversity and quality of the talks given. As a speaker, my most common problem is technical, and have to say the techs were a pleasure to work with and everything went smoothly for everyone the whole weekend. The audience was age and gender diverse and there were plenty of groovy folks to drink with in the evening. And I have to say, the food served (for lunches, shared by all, and dinners, for speakers and VIPs) was quite delicious and abundant. I spent nothing out of pocket to eat! It's an excellent little mecca to come to and enjoy the company of nonbelievers from all over this side of the globe. You've got to go at least once!

  • Imagine No Religion stands out among the many (wonderful) conventions, and I think it's partially because Bill and Kathy Ligertwood have the pulse of the attendees and speakers.  There's plenty of information, but there's also humor, heart, storytelling and a real connection with the audience.  There are no lulls on the schedule.  No "meh" items on the roster.  And INR maintains a Quality Over Quantity vibe, realizing that the audience wants to be engaged without being overwhelmed.  I also see INR as an event which respects the time and pocketbooks of its attendees, providing a premier conference value without becoming cost-prohibitively exclusive.  That's a tough balance, but Bill, Kathy and the INR crew pull it off.  Finally, the conference staff (and many in attendance) have become dear friends, and my connection with these wonderful people may never have happened without Imagine No Religion.  It's truly an honor to have been a part of iT.

  • INR is a great conference. If you have chance to go - go! I was treated very well, there were terrific speakers, and the atmosphere was warm and friendly.

  • Yet another wonderful INR. Great people. Exceptionally well run event. And a profound sense of community. I'm already looking forward to next year.

  • I knew the Imagine No Religion conference would be an event to remember, not to mention a lot of fun, nor was I disappointed. The single thing that struck me most powerfully was that, despite a disparity of opinions on various topics, the speakers and attendees formed one big, happy crew! It was a delight to meet in person various leaders, scholars, podcasters, etc., whose works I had read and who had interviewed me. Instant friendships! What a cast of characters! And, as always, it was a great treat and privilege to enter into conversation with the attendees, learning of their journeys, experiences, and concerns. And to embarrass them one more time, I am amazed and grateful to Bill and Kathy for their Herculean work putting these things together!

  • INR conferences are wonderful relaxed opportunities to hear a great set of speakers with a schedule that provides that rare treat: ample time for lectures and questions, followed by opportunities for discussion with a wonderfully diverse crowd of interested and interesting people.  The organization is meticulous, and speakers and audience members are taken care of with respect and generosity from the moment of arrival until the moment of departure.

  • INR is exceptional among the many atheist and skeptics meetings held every year. It is meticulously organized with just the right mixture of talks by academics, activists, and internet celebrities, along with entertainment. There is ample opportunity for schmoozing with the other speakers and attendees, who are among the most intelligent you will find at this kind of meeting. I also found the topics were more serious than some recent meetings I have attended, which were taken over by radicals promoting agenda than had nothing to do with atheism.

  • I have attended numerous conferences over the past three decades often feeling they were a waste of time.  I arrived at Kamloops, BC, as one of the invited presenters, with great hesitation and apprehension.  A conference titled “Imagine No Religion 3.

    I left this event in awe because this event turned out to be a time of learning and reflection in a relaxed and nurturing environment.  Presentation by renowned experts was one reason.  The spontaneous small group discussions on varied topics were another, where no topic was off limits.

    Bill and Kathy Ligertwood, the organizers of the conference, have managed to surround themselves with a legion of volunteers and made each attendee welcome.  They all succeeded in creating an informal, relaxing atmosphere where gayety, the sharing of knowledge, laughter and back slapping melted into serious discussions such as “What can we all do to eliminate Violence against Women”.   My presentation on honour based violence fit well into the overall agenda.  I met some wonderful people and left the conference feeling that I had made a lot of friends.

  • As a speaker, INR3 was a terrific experience. Kamloops is lovely. The organizers are just that — organized. And the atmosphere is one of tremendous intellectual curiosity and warmth. In essence, I was treated like a god.

  • I was honored to attend the ImagineNoReligion3 conference. I was particularly honored because I watched the vast majority of speeches at the conference and the quality of speakers stood out. Indeed there were several speakers who I had not heard of before that struck me as having new and substantive contributions to make. This conference does not have the "been there, done that" quality of some conferences.
