We felt very supported right from the beginning. The conference staff provided all the information we needed and responded to all our emails and phone inquiries. All our needs, including last minute ones were happily catered for. All the staff from conference services; catering and parking were pleasant to work with and very welcoming. These made a great difference and made the experience of using this space for the first time a pleasant one.

Everything was so efficient and well organized! The facilities staff were a great help on the day of to help with last minute room rearrangements and AV help, and catering services were very efficient in their delivery and cleanup. Overall felt very well supported throughout the day and would definitely host at the Lister Centre again!

Superb service and attentive staff made our event go smoothly.
