What our clients and suppliers say about us...
This conference was "better than many I have been to internationally"
Dr Mike Shepherd
President, Paediatric Society of New Zealand
..."how well (FP2) embrace the health and safety side of the event industry"
One thing we notice about FP2 which sets them apart from some other event organisers, is how well they have embraced the overall health and safety side of the event industry and are always mindful of this with every aspect of the co-ordination they undertake.
One advantage FP2 have of having longevity in the NZ conference industry, is that they obviously have a great reputation with all suppliers...when they take their suppliers along with them they can be confident in the guarantees they offer their clients".
Peek Exhibition South Island Manager
"A massive success all round"
Thank you so much for all your hard work in pulling together another very successful and memorable event. We’ve had great feedback from our conference attendees this year and it has been considered a massive success all round. That’s quite an achievement given the added complexity of switching to a virtual event at short notice. Our organisation has very much enjoyed working with Paula and the rest of the team for several years now; your professionalism, attention to detail, and enthusiasm are second to none. We look forward to working with you again for our future events.

"Our first very successful virtual conference"
ForumPoint2 have been a part of the CEP (previously known as EMANZ) conference management team for the past three years. 2020 saw their first very successful virtual conference take place.
"A huge thanks to FP2 for another year of dedication, commitment and performance over and above. You made a huge contribution to our 2020 conference and the usual 'we couldn't have done it without you' applies again".
Dr Mike Hopkins
Carbon and Energy Professionals New Zealand CEO
"So great to have 100% confidence in the FP2 team..."
"Thank you, Paula, and Jaimee for the outstanding work delivered from start to finish on the Waipa Business Awards programme. It was an absolute pleasure to work with FP2 again. So great to have 100% confidence in the team and there were so many occasions where Paula and Jaimee went well above what was expected.

"We were so pleased to have had their company’s services and experience"
"The Geoscience Society of New Zealand had the pleasure of working with the FP2 team on our 2019 conference in Hamilton. The team were always professional, easy to work with and amazingly efficient and effective. We were so pleased to have had their company’s services and experience, taking a huge load off the organising committee and myself. We learnt a lot from their seamless processors and efficiency to create a successful and memorable conference experience for all attendees".

"FP2 is possibly the best conference organisers I have had the pleasure of working with within Australasia"
"I have worked with ForumPoint2 Conference Partners on two major conferences, both of which were run very successfully. I have hosted several events and FP2 is possibly the best conference organisers I have had the pleasure of working with within Australasia. Their attention to detail and professionalism is second to none. The FP2 team made sure everything ran smoothly, from start to post conference follow up".

“We have worked with FP2 for our last two annual conferences"
“We have worked with FP2 for our last two annual conferences. They have always been highly professional, efficient and a pleasure to work with and the events have run extremely smoothly.
We’re very happy with our relationship with FP2 and the way they smooth out those stressful organisational headaches that accompany any event.”
Dr Mike Hopkins
"I cannot speak highly enough of their work and will be happy to discuss with anybody considering using a professional conference organizing company for their meetings"
“ForumPoint2 have administered two conferences for this organisation and we have every intention of asking them to organize our next conference in 2020. We are a small (membership of around 100) association that meets in a range of facilities for our biennial conference…..
They have consistently delivered a well organised meeting, sensitive to the needs of our members, sponsors, international contributors and the NZASH Executive Group.
…….ForumPoint2 have always come in on or under budget, advising us where potential savings can be made whilst pointing out where it is sensible to invest.
We have, previously, organized everything to do with our conference. We will never go back to doing that now that we know the benefits of working with ForumPoint2”.
"...excellent at alerting us in advance of things we should look out for"...
"ForumPoint2 assisted us with a national three day conference in November 2017. Although we were only one of their many customers, there was always someone willing to help us with challenges that came up and they were excellent at alerting us in advance of things we should look out for, as well as checking we had our conference planning in order.
They were very flexible as to what parts of the conference we needed help with and did an excellent job receiving and sorting registrations, and providing detailed and clear financial statements. They went out of their way to provide us with the type of website design we wanted.
Overall, all the staff at ForumPoint2 were professional and very pleasant to deal with".

"...yet another stunning example of event professionalism..."
"To the wonderful FP2 team, who worked diligently and went over and above, time and again to produce yet another stunning example of event professionalism, I salute you all!
...poetic, I know ;-), but truly, it was again an exceptional pleasure to work with you all in the months before, and during the madness that is by far for me the most intense conference of the season.
I hope you will all have some time to sit back and enjoy the success you have created, and thank you so much for the care, support, and attention you provided for me to help me in my role.
All the very best, and thanks once again...I look forward to the next opportunity!"

"The staff have a good feel for what we are trying to achieve..."
"We have worked with ForumPoint2 for a number of events now and have always found them to be professional and a pleasure to work with. The staff have a good feel for what we are trying to achieve at our fun night and have always come up with those special touches that help our night work.
We have found the conferences that have been organised by the ladies at ForumPoint2 to be well organised and enjoyable events."

"...professionalism, friendliness, and your very high level of customer service."
"I just wanted to personally and on behalf of everyone at CCNZ say thank you so much for making the conference last week such a great event. We have received very positive feedback.
I know that great events don’t just happen and I want to acknowledge your team's weeks and months of preparation and planning and your dedicated and tireless work at the conference itself.
I want to congratulate you all on your professionalism, friendliness (even when the pressure is on) and your very high level of customer service.
You are a fantastic team to work with."

"...FP2 are right in there working with us to make it happen."
"Peek Exhibition and ForumPoint2 (FP2) have enjoyed a mutually beneficial relationship over a number of years and on many different events in many different venues. During this time, Peek Exhibition has worked with FP2 as the Exhibition Build & Signage Company.
FP2 are a well organised Professional Conference Organisation Company who are well respected by many industry peers. FP2 always work in a professional, relaxed, and friendly manner which is really crucial in what is a time pressure environment.
Communication and attention to detail are two (of many) areas in which we really appreciate their professionalism and experience. We are always kept in the loop as to what is happening with events and if the unexpected or a last minute request from an exhibitor arises, FP2 are right in there working with us to make it happen.
Peek Exhibition feels secure in dealing with the team and we enjoy the mutual relationship, I believe this is one of the reasons we have successfully delivered so many professional and well organised events."
"...they are always friendly, approachable and willing to go the extra mile for us."
"The Paediatric Society has used ForumPoint2 as our PCO for Annual Scientific Meetings since 2010.
We have found over the years that we never seem to ask too much of them; they are always friendly, approachable, and willing to go the extra mile for us. They take pride in developing innovative conference solutions for a fresh look and feel each year.
FP2's professionalism, experience, attention to detail and ability to oversee all aspects of the planning ensures our meetings are always extremely well received by our overseas and local delegates."
