A huge thank you for the work that you and your team at USW Conference Centre did both before, during and after our conference. I was so impressed, as were lots of our delegates, with the professionalism and helpfulness of everyone involved. You certainly delivered for us, and I couldn’t have been happier with the way that the various challenges we and the technology posed were dealt with.
Your conference facilities are presented really well with plenty of people on hand to help on the day with informed and knowledgeable staff. I’m really pleased with the value for money which is important to us when booking for the charity.
