"As usual the Canadian Hedge Watch staff hosted a great conference.
The content was very relevant with very good panels and key note speakers.
I found the fund showcase segments very informative and a very good forum for fund exposure.
Pat as a host is always very topical and facilitates the sessions extremely well.
Thanks again for the well structured, informative and value add conference.
Looking forward to the next conference."

“Again, it was a pleasure to work with you this year. You did another outstanding job in organizing everything and paying special attention to the small details which was greatly appreciated. Your technicians and staff on-site at the hotel were superb. Thanks again for everything and give yourself a pat on the back...job well done.”

“I wanted to thank you and your team for a great conference. I attend A LOT of conferences and have to say that the level of service provided was in a whole different league than that I have experienced in the past! Laura was extremely helpful (with anything at all – even recommending shopping – very important!!) and available at all times during the conference – she was fantastic!
We appreciate all of the help and follow up and had a great time!”

“My colleague James and I attended the conference these past two days and we just wanted to let you know that we really thought you guys did a fantastic job organizing this event (and you couldn't have picked a better venue!)
We were incredibly impressed by the overall organization of the conference, from booths, to bags, to speakers/agenda to food to venue...overall things ran incredibly smoothly we thought and in the many years that I have attended conferences I must say that ultimately this was the best in terms of overall organization. You guys really did think of everything and did a great job. Congratulations!”

"I really enjoyed it, and it was very informative.
Probably, the best thing I could say was how uncommonly courteous and helpful everyone was, from the hotel staff, to the booth participants, and of course your staff. It was surreal, as I have never attended a summit in the last 20+ years with such an experience. (I don't know what they were on, but I want half!!! ha ha)Thank you"

“ I thought the HF Summit was very organized and well received."
"I just wanted to sincerely congratulate you and your team for the great job you did on this conference. I was quite impressed…
The turnout was fantastic, the quality of speakers was pretty good, the venue excellent and everything was extremely well run. I spoke at GAIM in Geneva and attended the Global ARC in Boston, and I have to say that your conference measured quite well with these well know events. We should have been participating in some form.
NBC will never be your main sponsor, but we should have had a booth. We'll be there next year.”

“Thanks again for all that you and your colleagues did to make participating in the World Hedge Funds Summit as enjoyable and trouble-free as possible. It's the best-run conference I have participated in. Best wishes for lots of continued success.”
"Congratulations on a most organized execution at the 2005 Summit. Both receptions were more than well done and the Talk Over Tapas of course was the talk of the attendees. We (IAS) definitely benefited greatly from them [events] as a sponsor and last evening helped connect a number of groups together which otherwise would have been next to impossible to put in the same room. Cheers! “

“I just wanted to take the time to congratulate you on the organization of the 2004 World Hedge Funds Summit. You did an amazing job to say the least. We did not encounter any major problems during the 3 days we were there. We felt like celebrities to be honest. We were constantly checked on to make sure everything was to our liking and anything that wasn't working, got fixed within the hour. We were very pleased and it was truly a pleasure working with you. I wish you continued success.”

“It was our pleasure to participate in the WHFS this year, which we found very rewarding. The venue itself I thought was excellent, and well suited to the size of the conference, which I thought promoted more networking than might have been the case at a much larger conference centre (although the distance from downtown Toronto was a bit of a challenge!). And I thought the organization of the event by Laura Brockwell and her team was top-notch.“
