I would like to thank you and all the Team for all your hard work. This is my second year attending Meetwest and I found the whole experience very beneficial, looking forward to next year.

Peter Jordan, Confidential Shredding Specialists Ireland

Once again, many thanks to you and your team for another great event. I enjoyed and benefited from all of it, and look forward to next year.

Paul Beatty, Tiforp Associates

Many thanks for organising The MeetWest event. It was a wonderful experience from start to finish. I met as many delegates during breaks and at dinner as I did at the arranged meetings and everyone of them was as valuable as the next. Every delegate had valuable insights, information or contacts that I can use for my business regardless of their trade. The Key-Note Speakers were brilliant and approachable when meeting them afterwards.

Fiona Lee, FixitFood Ltd

Many thanks for a wonderful event, I was blown away by the standard of delivery across the board which I reflected in the feedback form.

I attended the MeetWest event on Friday. It is a great concept, very well organised and went very well throughout the day. I enjoyed the day as it was a marvellous opportunity to raise the profile of the various projects on-going and planned by Abbey Álainn. Congrats and well done to you and all involved in planning and organising the day.

Enjoyed it thoroughly and found it fantastic for creating business partnerships. The event was excellently organised and flowed very well. Looking forward to next year already.

Áine Ni Churráin, Celestica

Over the years I have attended many different business networking events across Ireland and the UK, usually choosing events that suit the location that I happen to be working near at that time. MeetWest is by far the best that I have ever been to, and the only one that is now scheduled as a permanent fixture in my diary, regardless of where I happen to be working at the time. It gives me the opportunity to meet face-to-face with people who have previously only been voices on the phone and email contacts, and generates real business for me. I look forward to next year's MeetWest.

Paul Beatty, Tiforp Associates.

A big thank you to you and all the staff for making the event so smooth and friendly.

Hugh Bonner, Managing Director, Mara Media

Congratulations to you and all the team behind the scenes! It was powerful.
