Meetings and Event Testimonial

‘tireless efforts & outstanding service’

I just wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for your tireless efforts and outstanding service provided for our event.

I cannot express in words how much I appreciated your assistance and how impressed I have been with the way the event was organised and run. I have received feedback from delegates who were very happy with the facilities and catering and would like to congratulate you and Rydges, as a whole.

You are both wonderful people and I have truly enjoyed the time we have worked together. Rest assured, I will definitely be calling upon you again in the future - I look forward to it.



We at IQPC run many conferences across Australia and New Zealand. For many of our Sydney events we choose the Rydges Sydney Central.  We do so mainly because the fantastic staff and perfect facilities for our events.  Jessica and her team look after us flawlessly every event and the large number and flexibility of the conference rooms also provide a huge benefit to us.  I would strongly recommend to anyone.
