itSMF National Conference and Exhibition
"I would like to whole-heartedly thank you for the outstanding job you did to contribute to the success of the itSMF National Conference and Exhibition 2006. You are an absolute joy to work with. Nothing is ever too much or too difficult to do, you find a way to get it done. You were committed to ensuring that our conference was of the highest quality from the start and your skill and professionalism in dealing with the delegates, speakers, sponsors and our itSMFnz committee is to be highly commended. Your sound advice and guidance throughout the process has been invaluable, and I would not hesitate to use or recommend Icon Conference and Event Management in future."
Mary-anne Stuart William - Director of Events itSMFnz
Human Genetics Society of Australasia Annual Scientific Meeting
We have worked with ICON on the organisation of the Human Genetics Society of Australasia Annual Scientific Meeting. This is a complex meeting as several groups meet at the same time (with differing needs); most invited speakers, conference attendees and sponsors are international; the terminology (for sessions etc) esoteric. The meeting was a great success, in no small part due to ICON's attention to detail, speedy resolution of problems and great industry contacts (for restaurants, printing, audiovisual etc). Marleen herself has been a pleasure to work with and we would certainly use her services another time."

"Just a quick line to congratulate you and your team on the very efficiently run IT Tertiary Conference in Dunedin last week. It all went very smoothly and was a credit to you.
Clare Bowe - Conference Delegate
I just wanted to send a very special thank you to you for all your help on the VC Bootcamp. You were great – ensuring the workshop went like clockwork on the day – a real testament to the excellent planning and organisation you did behind the scenes. I could not have assembled the workshop without your help. Your personal advice on several fronts was also appreciated – as an example; I will definitely do the speaker thank you cards."

North Shore Hospice
“On behalf of North Shore Hospice, I write to thank you for the excellent event management you provided to present Starganza. For us this was a major event in both terms of fundraising as well as our public relations profile. Your management of the event was extremely professional and of a high standard. Your commitment to this project, which was the first time we had held such a large event, was also much appreciated and I am aware you went the extra mile for us on more than one occasion.”
