In one hand:
Dyalog Limited, a well established UK based software development company.
In the other hand:
The Montagu Arms, a hotel based in the New Forest with stunning conferencing facilities, Michelin star dining and a reputation for outstanding customer service.
‘A venue that combines traditional England with meeting facilities, luxury accommodation, excellent dining and top quality service is essential to us.’
In the case of Dyalog, conference organiser Karen Shaw was looking for ‘a venue that had a meeting room that could fit about 22 people round one large table and could also accommodate those people overnight along with partners. I was also looking for top quality dining and the option for private dining for up to 25 people.’
Particular requirements of Dyalog:
- 22 delegates
- 2 and a half days meeting
- Cocktail reception and gala dinner
- Very specific food and beverage requirements
- Highly specific bedroom requirements due to health issues of some guests
Thanks to top quality organisation and attentiveness, the conference was highly successful for both us and Dyalog.
Karen comments ‘the conference was a huge success and a lot of the credit for that should go to Lauren, who was my main contact leading up to the event. She listened to all of my requests and came up with ideas of her own too. For me, the key to a successful event is in the planning and everything just ran so smoothly. During the actual event, the staff at the Montagu Arms were excellent and could not do enough to help’
The Montagu Arms, home to Michelin star restaurant The Terrace, and the Monty’s Inn Brasserie is renowned for delectable food combined with exceptional levels of customer service. Dyalog sampled food from both of our restaurants ‘The food was exceptionally good … lunches on all days were amazing and we had a private dinner on Thursday evening, a less formal dinner in Monty’s Brasserie on Friday and our Christmas Dinner/Party on Saturday evening. The food was delicious and could not be criticised at all. The same goes for the service it was top class - both in the restaurant and at the private dinners.’
‘In summary, my measure of a successful meeting or event is if I am able to relax and enjoy myself because I know everything is being taken care of … and I certainly did that … so hats off to all those involved in making our event so successful.’
