I would like to thank you and all the organisers of the IMIC 2008 for the kind hospitality you gave me during last week.
I have sincerely appreciated all of your efforts in arranging this conference and as a colleague of yours I know how much work is behind it.
It has been a successful event and I do hope to have soon the opportunity to come back to Greece with a nice group!

I wanted to thank you very much for the great organization you did for this conference and for the hosted buyer programme.
It was definitely a fruitful trip for me.

After arriving in a sunny Holland I will thank you and all your collaborators, as well as all for the sponsors for the great communication in the months before and during the IMIC 2008.
It was a great show, very well organized and we were very well treated during and after the event.
I met several very interesting speakers and exhibitors and I am confident we will be bringing groups to Greece. I am convinced that the IMIC has a great future and will indeed stimulate the MICE market in Greece.
Thanks again and best regards

I am confident we will be bringing groups to Greece soon.
Many thanks again.
All the best.

The 2008 IMIC was by far the best so far, both from an organizational point of view but also because of the high quality of the presenters and buyers. I have no doubt that the conference will continue to grow and will soon become a “must attend” event for Greek and European tourism professionals.

Thanks to all of the great professionals involved in the cellebration of this edition of IMIC.
Thanks to the organization, always there, always smiling, always having everything solved beforehand, suming up: making me feel always safe and in the best hands. Right the way I want my clients to feel!
Thanks to all the suppliers and venues that have collaborated in showing us how successful can be an incentive in Athens and other destinations in Greece.
Diana Llorca, Director, welldone events
I would like to thank you for the kind hospitality and fabulous experience you gave me during the IMIC 2008.
I found the congress very stimulating. I wanted to take the opportunity to get to know the destination when I registered as a hosted buyer. It gave me an education and a great network with key decision makers and suppliers in Greece. Moreover, I met a lot of colleagues.
I do hope to have soon the opportunity to organize an incentive for our employees in Greece (read Santorini).
Thank you again for everything and if you are ever in need of anything remember you have a new friend in Ljubljana...even if you are just passing through.
Darja Kalan-Milinovic, Travel & Event Category Manager, Lek Pharmaceuticals d.d., Slovenia
First of all, I wish to thank you and your committee for a wonderful conference and your warm hospitality. The topics and presenters were interesting, informative and timely. I really enjoyed learning more about your destination and all the possibilities it offers the group markets.
I wish you and your colleagues continued success.

It was a very well spent few days in Athens. I am certain having now re-visited Athens/Greece, I can sell it with confidence to any clients looking to place MICE business in the area. I felt by the end, I had learned so much about the destination, met some great suppliers and other industry colleagues from other parts of the world and during the conference sessions there was new and interesting topics to learn from. It was very apparent how much effort and commitment had gone into the organisation and I was extremely grateful to have the opportunity to participate. I have heard from many of the suppliers and it¢s great to have all these first-hand contacts now.
