Dear all,

that is, Inga, Helga, Inga and Elisabet,

What a nice stay in Iceland – again!
I especially enjoyed your fantastic service into the smallest details. How often does it happen that your get a bus ticket personally delivered from a downtown office to the airport by a managing director! Not many can beat that!
I think that you even arranged the fabolous weather!!!!
If you ever happen to come to Tallinn and Estonia, I will be glad to meet you.

All the best,

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,
CEO, Waco International


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,
