"The conference went very smoothly and the venue was excellent. The feedback from delegates was also very positive."
"We have used Dalhousie conferencing facilities to run our annual education day multiple times. The facilities are state of the art and very welcoming. The staff are very helpful both prior to the event and on the day, and are happy to accommodate your needs. I would certainly recommend it."
"I just wanted to thank you very much for everything you did to help in organising the UK PlantSci conference last week. It has been great working with you and I would certainly recommend the venue to other organisers."
