A huge thank you to the Conference and Events Team, for all their hard work and support in showcasing to a high standard our Strathclyde Inspire100 event.  We took advantage of all the elements OnAIR had to offer, from multiple presenters, judging panel and guest speaker, through to networking!  The team are amazing, very professional and pulled out all the stops to make our event run smoothly!

"A very big thank you for all the support on the day and leading up to the event in making it such a success.  We very much appreciated your professionalism, engagement and flexibility in making everything go to plan and more, you are a huge credit to the University of Strathclyde and Technology and Innovation Centre."

Rather than cancel DATA.SPACE we decided to move the event online so that we could continue to engage with our international audience. The event platform we used was easy to use with fantastic functionality, but the true value was delivered from the TIC team. They were there to help at every step from planning to delivery and made a daunting task relatively straightforward.

"The food was absolutely delicious, probably the best I've come across yet. There was a very broad selection of options to choose from in the buffet package, with plenty of meat, veggie and vegan options. The catering staff on the day were fantastic, they were very polite, helpful and kind and made us and our guests feel very welcome."

Jill Rymer, EnergyREV WP Review/SSG Meeting

"The event ran very smoothly, thank you for all of your help in setting everything up. The IT guys were fab and helped to get everything set up first thing and we did not have any problems at all with the IT side of things. The catering was excellent, good standard of food."

"We were very happy with the Technology and Innovation Centre as a venue.  It was very helpful to have the additional space in the foyer area for the displays and for guests to walk around. We would use the TIC again.  Thanks again for your help and for being so supportive and helpful as always."

The advice and support I received in the planning and organisation for the Lean in Higher Education International Conference 2021 was incredible.  Organising an international conference can be a very time consuming and at times stressful experience, but having the team at Strathclyde supporting us every step of the way made things so much easier.  Their knowledge and support in relation to the virtual conference platform was amazing. They helped put me and all of the speakers at ease and made a huge contribution to ensuring the conference was a huge success.

"Thank you ALL for all of your efforts over the whole week and the pre-amble to the week from planning to implementation. I have very much appreciated the whole TIC Team’s really supportive inputs – all of which contributed to provide a mega successful conference."

The support we received from the very outset was superb: they helped us get to know the platform inside out, were with us every step of the way during our planning with ideas and answers, and this gave us the confidence and skills to maximise our creativity and potential.  I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend the team or the platform. Everything and everyone worked like clockwork, taking the stress out of a really busy conference.

"I just want to say a huge thank you to all of the staff involved at the TIC. Reception/AV/Catering staff were all so accommodating and helpful. While we are an organised bunch, it is so reassuring to know that the event is in good hands and all runs smoothly."

"I want to thank all of the team for all their help and assistance over the last couple of days, not to mention the lead up to the event. The meal last night was very nice, everyone enjoyed it lots and were all very complimentary of the food and service which was also first class."

"The TIC building itself – the design and layout inside and out, the facilities and the responsive professionalism of the staff, the catering - all make this an excellent venue for large or small events."
