The study of supersymmetric and conformal field theories in diverse dimensions and classification of Type II or M-theory backgrounds with $\text{AdS}_{d+1}$ factors as their holographic duals in d dimensions is of substantial interest. In this talk, we focus on the case of conformal and supersymmetric linear quiver field theories in three and five dimensions preserving eight Poincare supercharges. We are mainly interested in Wilson loops as they can be computed exactly in SUSY gauge theories. Within the electrostatic formulation of holographic duals to conformal balanced quivers in five and three dimensions, we mention the expressions for Wilson loops in antisymmetric representations. In the case of three-dimensional quivers, we present a relation between Wilson loops in an ’electric’ and the ’magnetic/mirror’ descriptions.
