I wish to express my personal thanks for your help and very kind considerations with organising the CAB/Uni celebration event.
I was very pleased with its success and I am sure everyone who attended felt the same.

Unfailingly helpful in every possible way...
British Universities & Colleges Sport - Residential Conference, July 2012
I would like to add my unbridled praise for the staff at the University, who were unfailingly helpful in every possible way.
The professionalism shown by everyone at every level was outstanding, from the conference organisers themselves to the lovely ladies who cleaned the bedrooms.
It was certainly a lesson in excellent customer service, and has set our level of expectation for future conferences very high.
Karen Rothery, CEO
The accommodation was fantastic...

Rob Walker - Cannock RUFC Tour Organiser
You were all brilliant!
Classical Association Conference, April 2012
Thank you and all of the Exeter team for your superb help and support throughout the conference, which made it the fantastic success it was (our delegates were full of praise for the event - the best in years!).
Everyone was marvellously helpful, pleasant and as efficient as possible.
The food throughout the conference was excellent, and our delegates had particular praise for the gala dinner menu.
You were all brilliant!
Dr Karen Ní Mheallaigh - Department of Classics and Ancient History, University of Exeter
The food was up to its usual gorgeous standard...
The Smallpiece Trust Residential Conference, April 2012
Thanks so much for all of your help towards making our course run so smoothly. We had everything we needed and the course ran very well as a result. We really enjoy coming to Exeter and it was great to work with you. Please could you also thank the catering staff who were great and really looked after us all week.
The dinner was a great success thank you, the food was up to its usual gorgeous standard. I think we can both say we felt very well looked after by yourself and the staff at the Uni (it is currently my personal favourite place to have a residential course for many reasons and it would take an exceptional Uni to beat yours).
Louise Duncan and Petra Hancock - The Smallpiece Trust
We were absolutely thrilled with the venue...
Choir of the Year Auditions, March 2012
We were absolutely thrilled with the venue - thanks to you and all of the staff who were involved for all your help in making it a great success. It was certainly one of our best managed days that I can remember on the venue side of things!
Helen Price - Choir of the Year
You and your team were utterly brilliant...
Talk by Monty Halls, March 2012
I just want to say a huge thank you to you for helping make sure everything went smoothly last night. You and your team were utterly brilliant. From guiding me in through Exeter when I was lost, to your fantastic IT team who never gave up helping Monty get his presentation working to your fab security guys lugging boxes round for me. Honestly, it was such a pleasure to meet you all. So on behalf of Monty and me, thank you for doing such a brilliant job.
Suze Scott - Operations Manager, Monty Halls Ltd
The venue itself was ideal...
CVLA Literacy Conference, January 2012
I would like to thank you and all your team at the Peter Chalk Centre for providing us with first class service throughout the day. It was a great place to hold our Schools' conference and the staff were very courteous and helpful, nothing was too much trouble and they supported us throughout the day.
The venue itself was ideal and we will certainly be back in the future.
Susie Jessop - Chair of the Clyst Vale Learning Community
The organisation was seamless...
Thank you so much for another excellent event last night. Yet again, the organisation was seamless – food was received timely and clearance was quick. I was very pleased to see that the drinks reception was set up and ready to go prior to any arrivals and everybody looked smart in their black uniforms. Please pass on my thanks to your teams.
Now onto the food – it was fantastic which was clearly noticeable by the empty plates going back into the kitchen! Well done, Aaron to you and your team for providing top quality delicious meals.
Another good event all round – see you in June!
Kay Bishop – Business Leaders Forum
I just wanted to thank you very much for allowing us to use the university facilities for the talk by General Parker in aid of DecAid last week. It was wonderful to be able to use the lecture theatre and everything worked perfectly. Kelly was a great help beforehand and it all ran very smoothly. The evening was a great success with around 180 people attending the talk and a further 60 coming to the dinner afterwards. Thank you again very much for your help with this.
Rupert – Decaid
We couldn't have done it without you...
I wanted to write to say thank you so much for all the work you put in to the AHUA conference over the last few months and in particular in the last few weeks and days! To say that we couldn’t have done it without you is the biggest understatement possible. At every step of the way you were outstanding in helping us to organise an incredibly successful conference. Your complete professionalism, pro-activeness, ideas, understanding of what was required and ability to keep smiling whatever we threw at you, and however many changes we made, was amazing! It was a complete pleasure to work with you and I think every Registrar went away with a first class view of Event Exeter and your ability to put on the very highest quality conferences.
Jill Williams, Executive Officer to the Registrar & Deputy Chief Executive – University of Exeter
The food was fabulous...
I just wanted to say how very impressed the Martineau contingent was with the facilities, staff and catering that underpinned the AHUA conference. It was an extremely slick, impressive and yet friendly and personable performance from all those we dealt with and the food was fabulous!
All in all it was a very enjoyable and useful conference, so congratulations to all who were involved in its planning and execution.
Smita Jamdar, Partner and Head of Education – Martineau.
The porters did a wonderful job...
Just to say a very big thank you to you for looking after us so well over the weekend. Our event was a huge success and we have had some very positive feedback from our delegates. Please convey our thanks for a job well done to all the staff involved who were at all times friendly, courtious, helpful and smiling. The porters did a wonderful job dealing with some 'grumpy old women' and were extremely patient. Thank you once again on behalf of the Guild.
Denise Davies & Hilary Kennerley – Quilter’s Guild
The best catered and organised event...
Just a quick but BIG thank you for all your help in making the meeting a success. Things ran so smoothly, it was simply great. Many people commented how it was the best catered and organised event they had attended. I felt privileged to have worked with you.
Orkun S. Soyer, PHD, Lecturer – University of Exeter
Staff could not have been more helpful and friendly...
A very warm thank you from all of us on the organizing committee to you and all colleagues in the Events and hospitality teams for your support during last week’s 2011 International Conference on Behavioural Economics and Economic Psychology. Staff both in Peter Chalk and in Holland Hall, on the residential, catering and portering sides, could not have been more helpful and friendly, both to us and to the delegates. I had very many positive comments and so far as I can recall not a single complaint about the entire arrangements. From our point of view, the conference was an outstanding success.
Professor Stephen Lea, AcSS - School of Psychology, University of Exeter
Rooms were excellent...
Everything went so well during our stay, and the people we dealt with were all very friendly and helpful. Rooms were excellent; ditto the catering. Full marks! Best wishes and thank you.
Norman Reuter, Heritage Architecture
The venue was arranged perfectly...
I would like to thank you both for helping to make our annual conference such a great success. The venue was arranged perfectly for us, and staff at the conference centre were so helpful and pleasant to work with. Kelly, your arrangements and procedures for the day worked fantastically, and Geoff, the IT support was second to none, many thanks for your valued technical help and guidance prior to and during the day. Please also extend our gratitude to all the venue staff there who helped us on the day, in particular the porters for whom nothing was too much trouble, and of course the catering staff who gave us an excellent service. Feedback from the day was overwhelmingly positive, many thanks once again.
Lyn Bender, Joint Information Systems Committee
I just wanted to thank you and your team for the conference on Friday. We had positive feedback from many delegates. They were particularly complimentary about the catering, and I would appreciate it if you would thank the catering team for me - they had largely cleared up and gone by the time I was free.
Sarah Jordan, Royal School of Church Music
A successful and enjoyable visit to Exeter...
I wanted to say an enormous thank you for all of your help for our booking with you at the beginning of August. The group enjoyed themselves enormously and all commented to me how pleasant and comfortable the accommodation was, and how everyone at Exeter University was very friendly and helpful.
Thank you for making the last-minute changes have minimal impact on us and for the daily coach service that you provided for us. I know the group hugely appreciated this. They also all commented on how nice the final dinner was on Saturday – so thank you for giving this to us as well.
Many thanks to you and Becky for a very successful and enjoyable visit to Exeter.
Sarah Aldrich, TEP Conference
We had a great stay, everyone loved the University, Holland Hall and the catering were both excellent, the catering staff especially helpful and so well organised. We would certainly recommend a stay with you and may well organise another trip to the West Country in the future and would use you again.
Rose Horspool – Vista Arts
One of the best venues we have visited...
I want to pass on our thanks to you and all of the team at Mardon and Holland Halls who made our stay so comfortable. Everybody was immensely helpful and welcoming and this was noticed by many of my party. I hope the customer satisfaction returns reflected this because I thought Exeter to have been one of the best venues we have visited in the past ten years.
Please would you pass on my thanks to all of the staff in reception and the restaurant. They made our stay quite memorable and provide a benchmark that other venues will struggle to achieve.
Roger Morris - Dipterists Forum Summer Field Meeting
Everyone enjoyed their stay...
Thank you very much, all went very well. Everyone enjoyed their stay in the Halls, the food was great, all refreshments arrived as planned, the rooms were as expected. It went very smoothly. Thank you for your time ensuring all the details were put in place following my requests. The whole process working with Event Exeter was very good.
