Client testimonials

“Thank you very much for your hospitality. We thought the whole event ran very smoothly. We still think that the session was one of the best we’ve done to date mainly due to the intimacy of the theatre and the great facilities.”
Welsh Government (Conference)

“They (the team) certainly threw themselves into the event helping all our guests, young and old, make the very most of the Techniquest experience. They also ensured the event went smoothly with tannoy calls and general supervision of the administration requirements of a large audience.”
British Computer Society (Family Fun Day)

“Thank you very much to Techniquest for hosting our EU referendum debate. The event was professionally run and the staff support was second to none. It was a great venue to hold a science themed event – the displays were an added bonus!”
Cardiff University (Conference)
