Testimonials

Testimonials


"The "Universal Design in Post-Secondary Teaching: Reality or Utopia?" A Symposium for Educators held at the Wu Conference Centre on November 9-10th was a tremendous success. Feedback was enthusiastically positive from presenters, delegates, and volunteers. The success of the event was in large part due to the excellent services and support provided by UNB Conference Services. The services that your department provides make planning an event such as this one so much easier and less stressful. I will be sure to recommend your services whenever I have an opportunity to do so.
It was a pleasure working with all of your staff. Everyone was so helpful. I want to commend Julia Clarke in particular for her outstanding work before, during and after the Symposium. She was always prompt, organized, professional and a joy to work with. I also want to mention the fantastic audio-visual technical support provided by Jeffrey MacNabb. He was a life saver on several occasions during our event, remaining calm while under pressure from nervous presenters and organizers"


“It's always a pleasure to work with the staff when planning our meetings and on meeting day. The Wu Centre provides excellent customer service and we never have to worry whether our needs will be met. The total experience from start to finish is always great. It's an excellent conference centre - everything is well thought out and equipment/services provided are second to none.”


“I've done 5 conferences in a row; this was the easiest and most convenient so far. I found the prices competitive compared to other similar venues. The staff could not have been more helpful and accommodating. I would chose this venue again if I had to organize an event for the Fredericton area.”
