What our clients think
QMU served as the ideal venue for our Production company to film in recently. With a number of large spaces on offer, we were spoilt for choice when choosing where to film for our client. The facilities were clean, well maintained and the service we received from the Events team was exceptional. We will definitely be back!
Kat Jordan, Tanami
Thank you so much for your support and organization which helped to make the event last week such a success. Particularly for your patience with the changes in numbers - we far exceeded our original estimate and even more positively, the numbers just exceeded the final catering number of 125! And in ensuring we could accommodate our specific requirements. The venue was very good for the scale and type of event and even on such a hot day, stayed cool and well ventilated thank goodness.
Public Health Surrey Day Conference, June 2022, University of Surrey
I just wanted to pass on my personal thanks to you and the events team for helping our DTP students organize their conference last week at Surrey. The event went really well, and I think that those who attended all had a great time. I know that events, such as these, take a significant amount of time and effort to arrange and I am very appreciative of your support and hard work in helping to organize this event. In fact, there were many comments saying "what a great place to hold a conference" and "perhaps we can do it here again next year". Well, we shall see......!
