World Family Therapy Congress

March 2019

"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
