What Our Customers Say About Us

"The Conference Collective provides full Association Management Services to the International Society of Hypertension (ISH). As  Immediate Past President of the Society and an active Council member since 2006, I can say with confidence that the Society is extremely happy with the comprehensive service offered by The Conference Collective. Their team understands the specific challenges faced by committees with a global reach, respond to all tasks and requests in a timely fashion and importantly allow us to innovate and grow through established and new activities.

Their input is proactive with a strategic focus and they take full responsibility for overseeing the constitutional and charitable governance of the ISH which is a UK registered society. They have recently introduced a new membership management system that allows us to monitor our member engagement and they manage our finances in an efficient and transparent manner.

The team also organise a number of ad-hoc events for us each year, manage an average of six committee meetings each month and arrange and staff an exhibition stand to promote the Society's activities at appropriate events. I have no hesitation in recommending their services to you."

"I have always found The Conference Collective to be professional, efficient and deliver on time. Jacinta and her team are creative and draw on their wealth of experience to organise our major national conference and provide our charity with the assurance of a well-run event."

"The College of Occupational Therapists have been working with Jacinta Scannell for a number of years as our conference secretariat. We are the UK  professional body for occupational therapists with over 29,000 members. We organise an annual conference for our members, which is highly complex, with over 150 sessions and 15 parallel streams involving c. 420 abstracts being submitted.  

Jacinta and her team are responsible for abstract management, delegate  and conference management, and the multitude of tasks that are needed to ensure our annual conference is successful.  This includes delegate bookings, accommodation, catering, gala dinners and a plethora of special ‘events’ that take place within our conference, too numerous to mention. They also act as the secretariat to our volunteer conference programme committee, advising on programme compilation and all that this entails.

I would have no hesitation in recommending Conference Collective in a similar role. They are professional, customer focussed and highly experienced in running conferences. In addition, they are excellent problem solvers and strategic thinkers, as well as dealing with our members well."

"The end is always such a rush. I barely spoke to you at the meeting - why – not because I did not appreciate what you did, but because it was so well run I had no cause to do so. I really appreciate the calm professionalism that you bring - nothing is a problem and everything gets solved before anyone can complain.

I just wanted to say that the meeting was a great success. So thank you again - great work!

"I have worked with Jacinta Scannell for the past seven years in my capacity as chief executive of The Migraine Trust.

The Migraine Trust used Hampton Medical Conferences Ltd, where I first met Jacinta in her capacity of Managing Director, for many years to organise the Migraine Trust International Symposia which she did with great efficiency. I was delighted when she set up her own company, The Conference Collective and bid successfully to put on the European Headache and Migraine Trust International Congress (as the Symposium is now known) in London in 2012.

Jacinta and her team are always courteous and helpful and a joy to work with. Having a single point of contact has been extremely useful as it has been easy to have questions answered promptly.

Jacinta always has a swift solution to every problem even when I was not sure what the problem actually was! Her calm and unflappable presence  is a great comfort in stressful times in the midst of a hectic congress."
