In September of 2014, Your Host organized a conference for teachers of journalism from universities across Scandinavia. In brief, everything was handled very well and professionally. Your Host took care of the registration of participants as well as the organization of seminars, day tours and hotel bookings for the group as a whole as well as individual participants, arranged catering and managed all finances. Your Host also provided a customized website with all the necessary information regarding the conference. Your Host’s organization and management of the event was exemplary. Your Host’s staff was pleasant and quick to respond to any issues that arose.

Your Host handled all the conference registrations, hotel and tour bookings for participants and key note speakers, booking the venues for all events and managing conference lunches as well as the formal dinner. Your Host arranged a variety of tours and activities while the conference was in progress and handled all payments and accounting.

Conference guests were close to a hundred and everyone involved were very pleased with the event. I can wholeheartedly recommend the services of Your Host.

Your Host did a superb job organizing our conference.  They ensured that everything went smoothly, from conference scheduling to logistics to registration to payment to touring.  They were also very friendly and a real pleasure to work with.  I would definitely recommend them to colleagues and friends for future conferences!

The 5th US-UK Medical Sociology Conference, 2015

I have attended many conferences during my academic life, so I have good reasons to say that the US-UK Medical Sociology conference was one of the best I have ever attended, both in terms of the genuinely pleasant atmosphere but also in terms of the organization before and during of the conference. The information we received before the conference did not only enable me to prepare myself scientifically, but it also enabled me and my family that I brought with me to get the most out of the stay in terms of tours around the island. I would therefore like to thank the organizers for all their efforts in making a smooth running conference and for their flexibility whenever I contacted them about a request. Thank you Iceland!

Dear all,

I am writing on behalf of my Shipmates, my grandson & myself to say thank you for the wonderful reception you provided at the University before & during the July Conference.  The warmth of your greetings and generous hospitality made us feel very welcome. Congratulations to you all for the care and friendship shown to the Convoy Veterans.   I am of the opinion that the Conference arrangements were fantastic and a credit to you all. The program and timings, though demanding, enabled the delivery of papers giving vital contributions from which we learnt a great deal.  I am sure this Conference will set a hard act to follow in the future!  My best wishes to you and your families.

Dear all,

The Waco International group of companies holds an annual conference for its Senior Management and partners. Each year the company selects a unique destination that offers a best fit for the conference theme and activities. In 2014 we decided to visit Reykjavik, Iceland. With Waco’s head office located in Johannesburg, South Africa, we were looking at securing the services of an Icelandic conference and events company that was service oriented, efficient, knowledgeable and friendly.

We found exactly what we were looking for when we contacted Gestamóttakan – Your Host in Iceland. Their team of event coordinator specialists were hands on for the entire four days that we were in Reykjavik and went the extra mile to make our Senior Management’s conference a great success.

Thank you Inga, Hjördís and team!

Kind regards,

Stephen Goodburn
