Small Talk Events did a great job of keeping me up-to-date on my speaking role, providing guidelines for presentations, great info about the conference and associated events, and giving me gentle reminders for submission deadlines.

Senior Research Scientist, AgResearch

The staff at Small Talk Events were fantastic. The whole conference ran like clockwork, which was reflected by the overwhelmingly positive response from both the delegates and exhibitors.

Andy Fleming
Director, Halogenics

I attend conferences all over the world and organize several scientific conferences every year. Small Talk Events is the most competent and user friendly coordinating group that I have ever encountered. I give them my highest recommendation for organization of conferences of this type.

Professor and Chairman, Department of Comparative Medicine, Medical University of South Carolina, USA

With Andrea and Clive and their colleagues, nothing was ever a problem and it was always handled promptly with precise and clear liaison. When they said they would get back to us they actually did. We would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone who is thinking of organizing an event or conference.

Graham Murray & Anoush Barrie
Director & Business Liaison, AACS

The difference between good and excellent is attention to detail. As an invited overseas speaker to a meeting that was organized by Small Talk Events, Clive and Andrea paid attention to all those small details, such as hotel registration, in order to ensure that my passage into the meeting was seamless and that I could devote my time to the scientific content of the meeting and my presentation.

Arieh Bomzon
Director, ConsulVet

I can say without reservation that we were thoroughly delighted with all aspects of the service provided. We found them to be thorough, prompt, pro-active and unfailingly diplomatic in their dealings with all parties. We had no hesitation in re-appointing STE for our 2010 conference and can recommend them as a company that works with complete professionalism, unfailing tact and good humour.

Malcolm France
President, ANZLAA

I attend 10 conferences a year and rate Small Talk Events as the best. Conferences generate thousands of strands of communication, but Small Talk Events gives that personal, helpful, individual touch that makes all the difference to those of us that tend to leave everything to the last minute to sort out.

Steven Cubitt
Managing Director, The Cube, UK

Having recently exhibited at a conference managed by Small Talk Events I have no hesitation in recommending them, the meeting was slick, personal and extremely well organised. The small touches made all of the difference, they clearly cared about the meeting and about ensuring that everybody went away with good feelings about it.

Norman Mortell
Director of Operations, Agenda Resource Management, UK

Throughout my 35+ years in association management, I have encountered many meeting planning companies and individuals. Small Talk Events is superior in all ways. Their professional acumen, planning functions, organizational capability, on-site coordination, and follow-up are outstanding. What sets them apart from many meeting planning companies is the personal touch: I felt like I was the most important speaker on the program.
