Testimonial from a Multi-National Oil & Gas Company
We have recently held a highly successful 6-day residential event at The Aberdeen Altens Hotel for 180+ delegates. Due to the nature of the event (an emergency response exercise)and the number of delegates attending, we were sceptical that the event would run without any hitches, however we were proved wrong.

The hotel team demonstrated their ability to run a complex event whilst being extremely flexible in accommodating our evolving requirements. All meeting rooms were used during the exercise and additional bedrooms were emptied on short notice to accommodate further meeting space. The kitchen adapted their menu since the majority of delegates came from overseas and served food for both day and nightshift. Even when the Aberdeen weather tried to hamper our plans for a BBQ, the team were creative and brought the outside in, creating a garden area in a private room, complete with a mini-marquee, hog roast and even grass, bringing the WOW factor to us as the organisers and our delegates.

Having a dedicated Event Manager meant that our communication was seamless, both in advance and during the event, and ensured that all of our needs were responded to. The Events Team, with their friendliness and attention to detail, were key to the success of our event and we will certainly be using the hotel again for our future requirements
