Internal Event

Thanks again for the impeccable running of the AV last week. We had 0 complaints or queries from the online audience, which made running the course nice and smooth. Very friendly team too, it was nice to have them around.

Imperial Event Manager

External Event

Thank you very much for all your support. We have successfully completed our annual conference and have received very positive feedback from our senior management as well as our delegates.

The technical team has been impeccable before and during the event. They have helped us deliver excellent lecture theatre presentation sessions which were essential for our very busy scientific programme. They have resolved any small problem or challenge we have faced professionally and quickly. We truly appreciate your help and support.

A big thank you from myself and the other organisers for you and your team's help with the sustainability conference last week! Attendees have expressed good feedback so far saying it felt like a seamless experience on the whole. Your help was much appreciated especially when we faced technical hiccups in the morning, and helped get things going for the rest of the day.
