This report presents our reflections and feedback of the 9th Council of International Neonatal Nurses (COINN) conference 2016 that took place at the Westin hotel, Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada from August 13th to 17th 2016. This sophisticated venue overlooking a beautiful harbour captured the welcoming atmosphere and positivity that was to embrace the conference experience for the 4 day duration of ‘COINN 2016’. As you read this short article which describes the highlights and key messages from the conference, we invite the readers to hear the actual words from some of the first-time participants who stated that they will place the next ‘COINN 2019’ on their calendar with high anticipation.
