what our customers say

Paul Murricane (Manager), Axis Media Group
"The participants … were completely blown away by the quality of the studios

Alison Brettle (Conference Chair), 6th International Evidence Based Library and Information Practice Conference
"Working with the conference team took all the stress out of organising our international conference at a local level… we couldn't have had a successful conference without them"
George McKay (Conference Chair), IASPM Conference 2012
"have always found the team to be efficient, responsive, and absolutely professional, both in the long planning period, and equally during the events themselves leaving me and the rest of my organising committee more time to focus on the academic and intellectual content. Did I say they are friendly and unflappable too? They are! Highly recommended"
Peter Barrett (President (then)), Conseil International du Batiment
"The event Management team at Salford were brilliant. Confronted with organising an international conference for 650 delegates from over 30 countries, with a very full social programme, they provided a solid foundation on the practicalities. Perhaps almost more importantly, they also supplied amazing good humour throughout the preparations and the event itself, where they actively responded to, and often pre-empted, the myriad of issues that inevitably arise"
Rachel Martin (Conference Chair), Changing Prospects 14 Conference
"This experienced team anticipate problems, minimise risk and think creatively, which makes the development and delivery of a conference so much easier "
