Sharing best practice and new ideas to deliver better venues
Thank you all for hosting a great conference! After some years, it was fabulous to re-connect with industry colleagues and learn how their projects have progressed. Great also to see such a focus on sustainability
We are getting back to home after a long trip but it was worth it. The Summit went beyond all of our expectations. We accomplished all of our goals by far... you guys are best of the best, top of the top!
We had a really productive and enjoyable event. The whole team commented on what a well run and high quality two days your Summit is!
The Summit has again proven thought provoking, together with being an excellent networking event.
Such a diverse range of content and ideas – all very relevant to our Aberdeen FC project.
Everyone is so generous with their insights and knowledge.
We’d heard good things about this conference so we thought we would just give it a go... we’re very pleased we did and we're definitely going to attend the show next year
You get people from all over the world; architects from Brazil or the states, owners from clubs in Europe and design experts and project teams... and it’s absolutely fantastic
We wanted to sponsor the Summit mainly for the quality of the delegates... everyone that attends has a genuine project that they’re working on, so it’s the right delegates with the right product we believe
An opportunity to meet with people that are on the edge of starting new projects and have new ideas that could help the development of the industry… and being at that moment in time is extrememly important
The team was superb in introducing me to key stakeholders. Without doubt the best customer service I have ever experienced at an event
