Wow, wow and wow - spectacular work from the Eastern Sun team who really managed and watched expenses and looked at all the avenues to save money without compromising on quality. We can be proud and this is another reason to strongly put Eastern Sun forward to the Durban team - you don't need a locally resident organising company and Eastern Sun really does understand our needs.

I'd particularly like to highlight the outstanding job the Organizing Committee did in planning and providing a Congress that was scientifically and operationally first class. The word is out globally about a truly great Congress. You should all take a bow individually, as a team, as an organization, and a country for a job well done and for bringing kudos to ISMS through your efforts.
Greg Seymour, President ISMS. Sydney Australia.
From us at Topterra we want to congratulate you and give you a well deserved compliment on the organization of the ISMS conference last week. If you can pull of such an event and everything runs that smoothly that an outsider would think that it must be an easy job, than it is really well organized. For us, as preferred industry supplier and one of the sponsors, it was a delight to be part of this.

Comments taken from the evaluation forms
I've been to various other conferences and nothing can compare with this one. The whole process, from registration, to the social events, to the various presentations of the guest speakers - absolutely everything was superbly organised and carried out.
From the minute we arrived until we left there were no hitches or problems and for us delegates everything went off like clockwork.
