"As you will both be aware Safety 2012 was a great success with over 1000 delegates in attendance. The National Organising Committee (NOC) continues to receive glowing letters and emails referring to the conference as "the best world conference they have attended", no doubt in large part due to the exceptional organisation of the event...Conference Innovators has been terrific to work with on this project. We will certainly be recommending your company's services to others..."
Carolyn Coggan, World Conference on Safety Promotion and Injury Prevention 2012
"You managed to secure for us a beautiful venue, presented and maintained a detailed budget, and expertly managed details for each presenter. Catering, trade exhibitors and entertainment were all manged efficiently. Some of the smaller tasks seemed to be done with no effort by us at all, despite plenty of consultation along the way. We were always able to contact you with concerns or queries as they arose, despite your busy schedule. Every one of the staff that we dealt with was at all times professional and very well presented. We felt that the Conference Innovators team had an excellent grasp of issues relating to dentistry in particular. We even managed to finish the conference with a modest surplus despite the fact that we planned and ran an international conference during a recession when sponsorship dollars were very difficult to secure!"
Katie Ayers, Australian and New Zealand Society of Paediatric Dentistry Conference

Thank you again, and we look forward to working with you and Conference Innovators in 2012."

She has been absolutely wonderful in every regard during the planning stages of the Summit, and last week Rachel demonstrated her cool head, sound judgement and attention to detail on site also.

"Conference Innovators impressed us on our very first meeting in September 2006 and you continued to impress us on what was a long and busy journey toegther, a little over 18 months in all. You embraced our conference and made it your own; our worries, goals and vision became yours. Our initial perceptions of Conference Innovators as a company with the creativity to assist us fashion a conference with flair proved accurate."
Mary Harris, Office of the Clerk of the House of Representatives (Asia-Pacific Parliamentary Forum)

"What really made Conference Innovators stand out is your focus on hospitality and manaakitanga. In particular, your ongoing liaison and negotiation work with UNESCO World Heritage Centre staff in the lead up to and during the meeting was outstanding and helped to strengthen New Zealand's relationship with the Centre. The relationships you developed with other key individuals and groups including the Chair of the World Heritage Committee Paramount Chief Tumu te Heuheu, the New Zealand delegation, the 21 countries on the committee, and the Christchurch community, helped to ensure the success of the meeting. The Department of Conservation and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs have both reported to their respective Ministers on the excellent job that Conference Innovators did, with the meeting running very smoothly with no technical glitches. As you will recall, in the final session of the meeting, the Norwegian Acting-Chair stated that he could not find one flaw in the organisational arrangements and commended Conference Innovators."
Carla Wilson, World Heritage Manager
"As established event organisers, Conference Innovators have an intimate knowledge of the industry; negotiating the best costs from suppliers, having a clear understanding of contracting such services as venues and presenters which has been to our advantage. In addition they have shown their ability to be flexible and work in tandem with IIW Execuitive based in the UK, and the local Convention committee..."
