European Congress of Epidemiology (EUROEPI) 2013

In the autumn of 2011 the Danish Epidemiology Society decided to organize the European Congress of Epidemiology in Aarhus in 2013. From the very beginning we were advised to ally with a professional congress organizer, who could manage the many practical issues involved with organizing a congress.

 Given their experience and local knowledge KongresKompagniet was the obvious choice - a choice we never regretted. Both as individuals and as a team, KongresKompagniet delivered the agreed services in a very professional and convincing way which is so essential for a successful congress. But KongresKompagniet, and in particular our main partner Lone Stouby, offered us a lot more throughout spring 2013 and up to the congress in August 2013.

 When in spring we realized that the congress was about to drown in its own success with 650 participants (250 more than we ever could have dreamed of!), Lone helped us transfer the venue from the Lakeside Lecture Theatres at Aarhus University to the Scandinavian Congress Center. This meant long working days with frank negotiations to find optimal solutions within our limited budget, and it required stepping up the man power needed to handle abstracts and registrations. Sometimes we had rather tough and candid talks, but I always left our meetings in a cheerful mood. Lone and her colleagues always handled the pressure with equal parts of humor and professionalism, and I never doubted that I could completely trust them.

 Of the 220 participants, who evaluated the congress, no less than 218 indicated that they were either satisfied or very satisfied. This was in no small part due to the efforts of KongresKompagniet. If I am ever to organize a congress again, my first phone call would without any doubt be to KongresKompagniet.

European Association for Sport Management (EASM) 2012 Conference

The Danish Institute for Sports Studies (Idan)/Play the Game was co-organizer at the 20th EASM conference (European Association for Sport Management) in September 2012. It was the first time that the EASM conference was held in Denmark (Aalborg). There were almost 500 participants at the conference.

As a rule Idan/Play the Game plans their own conferences, however, we have good experience in outsourcing parts of our conference planning. For this purpose we have used KongresKompagniet several times and this with great satisfaction.
KongresKompagniet has assisted us with participant registration and payment, name tags and keeping track on the hotel reservations. We have always a perfect cooperation with KongresKompagniet. They never say “no, this is not possible”, but are incredibly flexible and very patient compared to the high degree of interference from our side.

No task is too big or too small, and all tasks are handled with great professionalism and with humor and warmth. As a conference organizer, I know how much work lies behind seemingly easy tasks.
It is always a great pleasure to work with KongresKompagniet and we already look forward to the next opportunity.

Scandinavian College of Neuropsychopharmacology (SCNP) 2009-

As president of the Scandinavian College of Neuropsychopharmacology, I would like to express my great satisfaction and gratitude to KongresKompagniet.

KongresKompagniet has been in charge of our meetings since 2009, which have been held in Denmark as well as abroad and KongresKompagniets efforts have always been unsurpassed. During all congress phases we have received assistance from a very professional cooperation partner. Especially to be emphasized is the assistance during the planning phase, where their big experience is a great benefit, also the handling of delegates and dealing with last-minute issues have to be emphasized.
The feedback from the delegates towards the organizers has exclusively been positive. Hence SCNP has chosen KongresKompagniet as regular partner for our meetings.
I can highly recommend everyone, who has to organize bigger events, to hire KongresKompagniet.

With kind regards
Gregers Wegener Professor, Chief Physician, MD

ISAF Youth Worlds 2008

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for organizing our accommodation and entry information as well as the social programme. The British team very much enjoyed the event; we did not experience any problems. This is thanks to you and your high level of organization and communication prior to the event. It is important that all aspects of the team are centered and provided for to fully ensure that there is anything more than the sailing alone affecting the sailors. With thanks once again.

INPUT2003 – International Television Conference

800 television people from 34 different countries are not an easy group to handle! Knowing this in advance, we looked for professional help and chose Kongreskompagniet to take care of booking, payment and services during the conference. Kongreskompagniet did this job with great competence and to everybody’s satisfaction. We were very impressed to witness the efficiency of KongresKompagniet right from the start and all the way to the days of the conference.

A lot of positive feedback from delegates was directed to the personnel of KongresKompagniet for their open and friendly behaviour. We owe a large part of our success with INPUT2003 to the fact that we teamed up with KongresKompagniet!

The ordinary Danish Law Meeting 2003

The Danish Bar and Law Society thanks KongresKompagniet for the profitable cooperation in connection with our meeting in June 2003. We were met with a top professional, smiling and service-minded team.They were well-organized and service was in focus. That is why our meeting was held without a hitch. For future events we will undoubtedly collaborate with KongresKompagniet again and therefore we give them our best recommendation.

4th CEN / ELC Conference

Form and content must match and when you organize a conference KongresKompagniet is a competent collaborator, who takes care of the fact that the form match both the content of the conference and the organizer’s budget. It is a pleasure to work with people, who have a well-established network and who know what is possible. At the same time they act professionally and flexible and have a healthy developed sense of humor.

European Round Table on Social Exclusion

The Round Table Conference on fighting poverty and social exclusion.

Following the last conference in Aarhus I should like to thank you very heartily for your cooperation and efforts in supervising the enrollment and registration of the participants for this conference. We have received a lot of positive feedback from the participants, who were pleased with the service you provided. I also know from my colleagues that you have been praised for the manner in which you were able to solve problems that suddenly arose. I want to pass this praise on to you. Thank you once again for your contribution.

The local and regional government summit

"Mini Summit” in Aarhus to discuss EU chairmanship

Following up on our cooperation with KongresKompagniet in connection with holding the conference and meetings in Aarhus, we want to thank you for the tremendous work you did and for the helpful, competent assistance you contributed during those hectic days. We have been extremely pleased with your work, which was characterised by competence, professionalism and insight throughout. The intention of the event we organized was for many different players to be involved, heard and given the green light for the different stages of planning – and occasionally too many cooks can spoil the broth! You helped us to maintain the broad view, yet keep control of all the minor details which we, who are not used to organizing such big events, could otherwise easily overlook.

Thank you for the help you gave to all employees of KongresKompagniet and a special thanks to you Heidi for your invaluable contribution and good humor, which you displayed at all times.

We should very much like to avail ourselves of your assistance again for any future events, and we shall be glad to recommend you to others.

EWC - Towards more influence

Conference of the European Cooperation Committee

As organizer of the “Conference of the European Cooperation Committee” we entered into a cooperation agreement with KongresKompagniet. KongresKompagniet was responsible for the practical running of the conference in connection with the accommodation and transport of 400 participants from 22 different countries. KongresKompagniet also acted as consultant in the practical planning of the conference. The cooperation with KongresKompagniet was extremely satisfactory. Despite many changes to the proceedings as far as the organizer was concerned, KongresKompagniet always found fast, appropriate solutions throughout the proceedings.

I can therefore convey the warmest recommendations from KongresKompagniet.
