Client Testimonials

In Keynote PCO, we are very proud of the comments and feedback that we get from our clients. We partner with our clients towards the success of their event.
Please see below a selection of the testimonials that we have received in recent years.

“From the early planning stage, Dublin was selected as the location for this conference. Organising an international conference in Ireland from the U.S.A. initially felt daunting, unitl we met with Keynote PCO. From the very beginning we knew we were in highly capable and professional hands. Rachel and her team demonstrated a keen attention to detail, responded promptly to our questions and requests for unique aspects of the conference, and anticipated our every need.

“Keynote are more than a PCO, for over ten years they have graciously shared their knowledge, mentored us and kept us informed every step of the way. A true team player it was a pleasure to work with them.
On behalf of the local organising committee, scientific committee, and the international board of the International Federation of Dental Hygienists we can, without hesitation recommend Keynote PCO as a first choice to anyone considering using the services of a professional conference organiser.

“With over 60 countries represented, the 11th Congress was truly a global event and we therefore had feedback from around the world on the key pillars of the Congress – venue, scientific programme, technical tours, social programme and abstract management. Coming not only from the delegates who attended but also from international sponsors, exhibitors, speakers, NGO’s, the United Nations (FAO) and the European Commission, this feedback was resoundingly positive. Keynote’s expertise in professional congress management was a major factor in achieving the very successful outcome.

In summary, Keynote’s expertise in professional congress management greatly facilitated the work of the LOC and was a huge factor in achieving a very successful World Potato Congress in Ireland. It was a genuine pleasure to collaborate with you on the event.”

Liam Glennon, Chairperson, Local Organising Committee, 11th World Potato Congress

“I am writing to thank you and all of your Keynote colleagues for your outstanding work as our partner PCO in bidding for and running WAAVP 2021. Sincerely, I am convinced that we could not have had better partners in this venture.

WAAVP 2021, despite the difficult circumstances, was clearly a very successful event, scientifically, socially, and in terms of value for money. Pandemic or no pandemic, I would certainly choose to work with Keynote again in organising an academic conference.

“We selected Keynote because of their professionalism and knowledge of running scientific conferences, and they didn’t disappoint. The team were with us from the initial planning right through to the closing ceremony, and couldn’t
have helped more.
Their hard work and experience meant the conference was perfectly planned and ran smoothly. Their friendly and helpful manner was noted by so many delegates and made the conference a special event.”

Prof. Eileen Gibney- Chair, Local Organising Committee, FENS 2019

“..this major international event takes place every four years, and has been running for the past 25 years and is the largest global forum for research on the mechanics of biological systems, from the cell & molecular level to tissues, organs and the whole body. WCB2018 was held in the Convention Centre Dublin and attracted 4100 participants from 70 countries – making it the biggest WCB to date and indeed one of the largest scientific meetings ever held in Ireland.
The Keynote team supported all aspects of the meeting from the very early stages in helping Danny Kelly and I put together a professional bid in a very competitive process and identifying suitable venues for both the meeting and the many social events.”

“The Keynote team supported all aspects of the conference from inception and bidding stage, pre-conference abstract submission and reviewing stage; budgeting and conference logistics, to post-conference proceedings and final reporting. The success of both of these conferences, hosted within six weeks of one another, could not have been possible without the support of a team of professional, courteous and committed staff that dealt promptly with the hundreds of queries, registrations and abstracts that are part of every conference.”

“I won the bid to organize the conference about two years before the event and I then set about selecting a Professional Conference Organizer. As someone new to hosting conferences I felt the task ahead of me would be daunting. As soon as I met with Noel and after he outlined what Keynote could offer to me I was reassured.
I talked to others who had previously used the services of Keynote and their recommendations were universally positive, so I made up my mind to go with Keynote.”

“This event was a success in terms of the number of delegates, the sponsorship and exhibitions, the scientific programme and the incredibly smooth operations during the five day event. We are still receiving positive feedback on all aspects of the congress from around the globe. You have played a significant role in strengthening and supporting the universities’ and IASLT’s relationship with international colleagues.”

“Assistance seems too meek a term to describe your role in organizing the meeting. At every level you brought a professionalism and degree of experience that helped us frame the conference, acquire the funds and run the actual event in a way that culminated in what some of our delegates called ‘the best meeting ever’.”

Kevin F. Sullivan, Chair of Organising Committee – EMBO Workshop, Chromosome Segregation and Aneuploidy 2016

“From the initial planning stage, right through to the close of the accounts, everything was run professionally. It’s a testament to Keynote’s planning that for a conference of almost 600 delegates there wasn’t a single issue throughout the whole process. I found Mary Rose was extremely focused on ensuring the best possible conference experience was provided to our delegates. Finally, the event team was outstanding. Delegates, many of whom would have attended several previous EPRWs, agreed that it was the best to date. We received numberous compliments from attendees and the Dublin conference has put pressure on future organisers to main the high standards achieved.”
