Your service, and in particular Frances Robertshaw, has been an absolute lifesaver for me. Fran took all my requirements at 4pm, and the next day (as promised) I had a list of 4 potential venues to visit, 2 of which met my requirements exactly (and the other 2 were viable alternatives). Thanks to her we now have our 2011 bookings sorted to the high standard we were looking for and to our (tight!) budget. Thank you!!

He was professional, polite and courteous at all times. I will definitely be using Liam and Conferences-UK for any future personal or business group bookings. Thanks again, very impressed! Ben

Liam Earl was my first and only point of contact. I find this very important when dealing with external clients. Liam was responsive to my requests and needs, and understood what i needed from a venue. He arranged everything. His patience was much appreciated as i was unable to confirm the booking for almost 2 months, however he kept in contact during this time. For the rating i have given a 10, I hope you class this as your Top Rating (not clear on the form) Thank you!

27-Nov-2009 Speed Of Light With Little Notice
I have spent the past week trying to find a suitable venue for a 300 delegate event with no possibility to change the date. I am normally really good at finding venues and negotiating a price. This time, I really struggled to find a venue that wasn’t already booked on this date and because of budget constraints, suitable venues were few and far between. In the space of one day, Lucas Czarnecki found me one of the best venues in the search area and saved me in excess of �4,000. I could not even have considered this venue at the advertised price and Lucas negotiated them down to a significantly lower price. I will definitely use Conferences-UK again – they made my job a lot easier!!
