Australia - Paraxel | Dean |

”Thanks so much for your support this week and leading up to this meeting. Your partnership has been fantastic and I could not have achieved such a successful outcome without you. This is a new account for Parexel and I felt confident that you would provide me with the support I needed to make us look good and you certainly achieved that as I have received overwhelming feedback from the client on all aspects of the project. Even though the volume of work was on a small scale I felt like you treated the project like it was an important large event and despite the time difference I always felt you were available (and often you were!) during the pre-work stages. Thanks again and I look forward to working with you again in the (hopefully near) future!”

Australia - Xango | | Event Manager

I have worked with a wide-variety of Event services vendors and DMC partners in my experience as an event planner for XANGO LLC. arinex represents the highest level of service and hospitality I have come across, anywhere in the world. As I collaborate and travel with the arinex team I become a student of seasoned professionals. I take notes, and implement the hospitality and service skills I learn on my U.S.A and Europe based incentives. arinex employs more than mere skills during their programs. Their professionalism comes from a genuine passion to execute incredible events. The usual event maladies of stress and fatigue are nowhere to be found with this group. They have a contagious excitement and optimism for hospitality and travel and all the challenges it presents. For example, In Port Douglas, Sonja thought nothing of waking up at 3:30a.m. to ensure my VIPs made his airport transfer on time. And after my last program, Sonja took the time, after a week away from family in the tropical north, to spend an evening with me in search of the most authentic Napolitano-style pizza in Sydney. Rarely in the world of events does one meet so many people so perfectly suited for their careers that it would seem a loss to the industry as a whole for them to be engaged in any other pursuit. At the end of each of our two programs, I've felt that I've not only made the right business decision, but that I've also made life-long friends. arinex is the best of the best.

Canada - AYMTM | | Account Director

In June 2013 we ran an incentive to Toronto for a telecommunications company from the UK with 40 guests. CTI assisted us with all of the pre planning and delivery of the event. I have to say they were superb in the lead up to the event and the delivery on site. Nothing was too much trouble and the event was delivered seamlessly! CTI know Toronto incredibly well, as you’d expect, but were able to understand the demographics of the guests and work Toronto to suits their needs. All in all a fantastic DMC to work with.

Canada - BCD | Laura | Senior Project Manager

A quick note to say thank you for your help in making the Business Partnership Progamme trip to Vancouver and Whistler a huge success. As always, nothing was too much trouble for you; you consistently went above and beyond both in the run up and during the event. I always knew that, whatever time is was over there in Toronto, I could call or email you and you would get back to me immediately. Your knowledge of Vancouver and Whistler is brilliant and, unlike other agencies, you really think about the delegate profile and what is wanted from an event before suggesting activities and venues. The feedback from both the client and the delegates has been fantastic. I would not hesitate to recommend CIT to colleagues and I look forward to working with you again in the near future. Your enthusiasm and passion is amazing, even after very little sleep!

Elcotour - Falk Messe Reisen | Susanne |

It has been an absolute pleasure to work with Elcotour on a pretty challenging project this fall. We felt very well taken care of in any aspect. Their huge professionalism, personal efforts, immediate responses and their excellent contacts have been a true source of support – we could really rest assured that all matters would be taken care of completely so we could concentrate for once on our clients. We are amazed on their perception of details and can´t wait to come back to them with another project soon.

France (North) - Hemingway | Jane Fuller |

I just wanted to write to thank you for organising the Paris side of our away day. It was magical. Everything ran like clockwork. Denise, our guide, was lovely. She caught the mood of our party perfectly. She was friendly, informative and happy to adapt to our needs. Please pass on my thanks again to her. I was particularly delighted with the boat (especially as the one we would have had originally was so much smaller!). It was magnificent, with plenty of space for us to walk around and, most importantly on such a hot day, air conditioned. The staff were very pleasant and attentive. The Ritz was also very accommodating. They were quite happy for us to linger a little longer than our itinerary specified and they made us feel very welcome. I have had so many good comments from members of staff. The general feeling is that it was "the Best Away Day Ever" and a most memorable day. Thank you for all your hard work in organising the day and please pass on my thanks to all those involved.

Germany (North) - IMEX | Annie |

“I hope you have recovered from an ‘interesting’ IMEX week. As always you and your team were terrific. It is always a pleasure working with you. It amazes me that regardless of the long hours and stress you are under you are always so cheerful and smiley. Fantastic! I look forward to working with you again next year, but just wanted to say thanks and let you know what a star you are!“

Germany (North) - Shell International - UK | Keri |

“CPO Hanser managed ground transport from the airport , the train station and on location at the hotel, their skills and knowledge with the international group saved Shell time and money. Control over the 300 delegates movements was professionally executed. Shell has very rigorous health and safety procedures and CPO Hanser were accountable for ensuring the drivers were trained to Shell standards. I can highly recommend CPO Hanser for any future events.“

I want to express my appreciation for the manner in which you managed and conducted the BW Global Conference. Prior to becoming very involved in the meeting I had numerous questions and concerns regarding the process and actionable items. In every instance, you responded with a detailed, accurate answers. You have a wonderful ability to efficiently coordinate everything behind-the-scenes and keep a cool level head on site.

Dear Raja, Hope this message finds you great. First of all I want to thank you very much for your support with this job and for being such a nice person and very professional. I would love to do another group in Jordan and I know I will be always In good hands with you and your team.

Jordan - A. C. T. E Travel & Events | A. C. T. E Travel & Events |

Dear all, Babette gave me a first feedback of the incentive to Jordan. She was very satisfied about the full organization of the incentive AND the whole staff on spot. Rami did a great job, Salem & Ghada too ! The guides were very good too. And Raja too of course!!!! I'm waiting for the feedback of client and will send it to you too. But in the meantime I want already thank you for the great job! Hopefully soon a new one!

Jordan - Absolute Corporate Events | Claire |

Well we are all safely home and working on the next project - like you, no rest for the wicked! I just wanted to drop you a line to thank you for a fabulous event in Jordan. I was, as you know, nervous following Nick's comments about my choice of Jordan for his President's Challenge event but you and your team delivered beyond expectation. Highlights for everyone were their lunch on route to Petra, out on the Point; their day in Petra; the dinner in Little Petra (scoring 11 out of 10); and the Gala Dinner at the Dead Sea. Simon the photographer and the DJ at the Dead Sea were also highly rated, as were the standard of the coaches. You and Rami worked tirelessly to ensure that everything ran smoothly. Rami was great on arrival day, working with the Grand Hyatt to ensure that the room drops were correct and all the key cards worked. He was also a great help to Amy on the last night with all the room drops. Raja, I congratulate Karma House on a well operated incentive and I will have no hesitation in proposing Jordan to future UK groups :) I also know you will have many President's Challenge winners returning on holiday. Good luck with all your trade shows etc!

Kenya - CT Travel Group | Jacqui |

Hi Nikki, I just wanted to drop you a short message to say a huge thank you. I am so impressed with your DMC in Kenya, they must have worked all weekend to get back to me. What a great programme and within budget. I love the football with the Masai guys, this adds the little touches which make all the difference. I am excited and hope that the clients feel the same way! It’s a breath of fresh air to deal with like minded people. Keep you posted

Morocco - Altayer Travel Agency | Pankaj | Incentives & Promotions Manager

Difficult to believe that it is finally over. Patience was a true test to our character but ultimately at the end of the day, it was the sweat and toil put into the file that was the most rewarding. Thanks Paula, your selfless dedication paved way for a successful story which will always be spoken about. Of course, we will look for opportunities to push more business in your direction, but lets be in touch in the meantime.

Morocco - Live Events - UK | Paul |

On behalf of both myself and MFI, a huge thank you to you and your team for taking such good care of us and ensuring that our few days in Marrakech went to plan. Everyone had nothing but praise for the city, the tours, the people and how efficient Unitours were and how pleasant your staff were! Every group has a special request and we were not different, so well done for finding a way for us to watch the England v. Turkey game - even got the right result!... Finally Paula, I hope it won't be too long before we are back, but in the meantime, thank you so much once again for a great few days in Marrakesh.

Poland - Conference Contacts - UK | Rosalyn |

In September 2010 Conference Contacts approached Mazurkas Travel to assist them with researching into possible sightseeing tours, unique venues for two outside dinner events and entertainment. This was required for 375 delegates who were attending a conference in Warsaw. Being the first time that Conference Contacts had to run an event of this nature in Warsaw, and in Poland in general they were looking to find a Destination Management Company that would "go the extra mile" in ideas, negotiated costings and ongoing support leading up to and during the event which was held in June 2011. Mazurkas Travel were definitely "up" for the job and delivered a first class service throughout the pre-event time. Once on site the support continued to the highest level with nothing being too much trouble. The staff employed to assist us from Mazurkas Travel were professional, extremely helpful and their English impeccable! It was a pleasure to do business with Mazurkas Travel and would certainly not hesitate in recommending them and also working with them again on future events.

Poland - RPMC Europe - UK | Natasha |

Mazurkas Travel were the chosen partner in Poland for RPMC, to support us in our planning and on-site assistance for Euro 2012. RPMC managed hospitality programmes for McDonald’s, SHARP and Sony in each of the four host cities in Poland, managing over 1,000 guest in total, providing local hosts and guides, translators, venues and transportation to name but a few services. Mazurkas Travel were a constant support to our local team in Warsaw and main account team in London. Their ability to react to changes in the brief on site were not only quick and efficient, but done with a smile! Throughout the planning process they were professional and very pleasant to work with, even at the busiest of times. I would not hesitate in recommending Mazurkas to other agencies or clients and would be sure to use them again if I ever find myself in Poland.

Romania - Green Box - UK | Cameron |

Having returned this morning from Bucharest (on the 6 am too early flight) I wanted to give you some feedback.Firstly, this is one of the best incentives I have hosted and the feedback of the group was superb. Everybody enjoyed it and the range of activities was a good mix so kept everybody amused.On a personal level, thank you for the creativity and professionalism you put into the event.

If ever you need a job in the UK please call me first! (sorry Mircea!)

We will all return to your beautiful city and I will have no hesitation in recommending your services.
