"My colleagues really enjoyed the venue and from my perspective everything ran really smoothly and I didn’t have to chase anyone to make sure small details were taken care of…We will definitely be back in the future when we have another meeting in Dundee."

August 2023

"You’re such a great team, and helped our event go very smoothly. Our attendees loved the room and the incredible view of the RRS Discovery, as well as having the chance to see your brilliant exhibitions."

"Thank you so very much for all your hard work making all the arrangements for the Moody Weekend.  The visits on Saturday both went splendidly well and the AGM itself on Sunday – marvellous"

"Can I take this opportunity to say thank you very much for all your help with our last event month. I had excellent feedback from the speakers as regards the venue, layout and staff support. This is much appreciated!"

July 2019

"Just wanted to let you know what a great evening we had.  Your organisation and service was thoughtful, flexible and discreet, the tour was excellent and the food was most enjoyable.  The Discovery could not have been a more appropriate and memorable venue"

Paul Donaldson TISA Safe Maintenance Seminar 2012
January 2012

"On behalf of Tayside Integrated Safety Association and the Scottish Chamber of Safety, I would like to sincerely thank the staff at Discovery Point for what can only be described as excellent service. Our event changed shape several times, with the most significant change being to increase our numbers by 50%. The conference staff were always accommodating, ensuring our event went very well. All of our delegates remarked on the smooth running and the excellent food provided. I would highly recommend the venue and hope to return with our event next year."
