  • “As Chair of the Institution of Mechanical Engineers, South Essex Area, I am reporting an excellent service from Event Essex at the Forum at our last event in March. The large lecture theatre is an impressive facility, fully equipped with the latest audio visual electronics with a huge screen easily visible from the back of the theatre. Support from Event Essex staff was given throughout the evening, which was very helpful when dealing with large numbers of attendees.”

  • "Our conference was a big success because of your help and organisation and all the support during the conference, so thank you very much for everything you did."
    Institute for Social and Economic Research
  • "I just wanted to write a quick note on behalf of myself and my co-organisers to thank you and your colleagues for all your help in making the RC28 conference a success. Delegates seemed very happy and we received many compliments on the good organisation."

  • "I just wanted to extend my thanks to the University of Essex for sponsoring our first ever event. It really does mean a lot to me and all the other people involved. Without your support we wouldn't have been able to pull off the amazing night that we had. Ben and Karen thank you very much for sorting out the costs for the venue, various pieces of PR and for showing your support on the night. Mark, the Event Essex team did a fantastic job on the night sorting out various little bits we needed, so thank you for the attention to detail you took to ensuring the building was ready for us. (Make sure to thank Louise for the fantastic job she did in helping out!) I hope we'll be able to work together some more in the future!"
