The Result

I want to express my sincere thanks and appreciation for Event Planet’s contribution to our recent conference. We have had many very positive comments about the organisation of the event, and several speakers and delegates have expressed their views about how your team has been so approachable, flexible and a delight to deal with.

The conference was highly successful and this is in no small part due to the commitment, dedication and hard work of your team. I know we’ve been difficult clients, but you’ve hung in there and delivered everything we’ve wanted, and then some. In fact the conference was so successful, many of our key stakeholders as well as the Minister’s office and my boss, are already talking about the next one!

Thank you! It was a delight and a joy to work with your team over the past eight months. You all kept us laughing and sane through difficult times and you always kept us focused and reassured. The Minister’s Office has congratulated us on a wonderful and valuable conference, making special reference to the seamlessness and the professional manner in which the conference was run. Thanks for helping us make it such a success!
