"I was really impressed by how professional and well run it was – you’d clearly put loads of time and effort getting it all organised and it paid off. The attendees all seemed very satisfied – hope you were too."
"What a great day! The effort in making it so successful must have been enormous. But I am sure all delegates felt the same as those of us from Operaworld. Thanks once again for your support of Operaworld. From the contacts we made yesterday, I am sure we can now progress."
"...The event was really well run and was a great platform for us to showcase our brand. The venue was a really good fit, and it must be pointed out that the food was superb. It was definitely worth it for us..."
