Many thanks for looking after us so well! It was my first time in Baltics and I thoroughly enjoyed it! All three fairs were really productive for our university and we managed to gather a good quality leads. This could only be achieved by such a great and dedicated team who organised it so well.
Natasa Vukadinovic Regional Manager Oxford Brookes University

Thank you for all your hard work during the tour and I very much look forward to continuing to develop a happy and mutually beneficial working relationship in the future. I think the transfers between the venues was very well organized and I think those of us that travelled by coach actually arrived at the next destination before those who had opted to take the plane!  The evening receptions were excellent and we were all made to feel very welcome and were looked after very well indeed.
