British Obesity and Metabolic Surgery Society 2020
Duff Bruce, NHS Grampian - Consultant General Surgeon and Clinical Lead was the local organiser of British Obesity and Metabolic Surgery Society 2020 at P&J Live, Aberdeen. He discusses his experience with P&J Live and VisitAberdeenshire.
"The Centre staff was one of the best we have ever worked with. Not just one person, but all of the staff… event management, A/V, security, food and cleaning staff all were focused on helping us make our event great for the attendees.
Aberdeen was a great location choice. People want to go to Scotland and our attendance numbers were very good because of that. Aberdeen also offered an affordable conference location and was a great place for day trips to explore the culture."
Douglas Tschopp, World Family Therapy Congress, March 2019 at AECC
"I realized that Scotland has a mystique that I never appreciated before, which bore out in our numbers. This was our largest congress since 2010 in Holland.
Delegates also commented on the friendliness of the staff ( and the people of Aberdeen). Our staff found all you excellent to work with; our staff loved the way they were treated, the cooperativeness of the staff, and the expertise of the staff. The efficiency of feeding all of our deluges in such a short time is an example."
William Hiebert, International Family Therapy Association, March 2019 at AECC
