Testimonials

‘awesomely excellent’

"The conference ran perfectly. The staff were really attentive and helpful.
The only feedback I received was positive. I had great feedback about the food (even those with dietary requirements were happy with their selections!).
I would highly recommend World Square as a venue for anyone wanting a conference in Sydney cbd."

"The event went very smoothly.  Many of the stakeholders commented on the food and venue as being excellent.  Personally, the gentleman (forgot his name) who was assigned to assist us was most helpful.  He was attentive and was able to make changes when discussed. We would be happy to use Rydges World Square again."
- Metropolitan Water Directorate

 

"From the initial contact, they were professional, friendly, kind and such great ambassadors for your company. It was an absolute pleasure working with them and from the (beyond) high level of service that we received from them and their teams, Rydges World Square will definitely be our first choice when running our next event.

I have received many comments from our staff to say how approachable all staff were, how ‘awesomely excellent’ the food was and how it was by far the best venue they had been to in years.

During the morning tea break yesterday both Jack and Kan were downloading software to make a last minute video presentation work, this is just one example of what valued assets these 2 young men are to your company."
