With the driving force of Paul Cook behind it, it is bound for success – it’s jam-packed with useful information and refreshingly user-friendly! An invaluable resource created by real professionals for professionals.”

GIBTM & CIBTM, Marketing Manager, Katie Devaney:  “This is just what the events industry needs; with such great support behind it I am sure that will soon become an invaluable tool for meeting planners.  Thanks to Paul Cook and the Barbican for a great networking event on an otherwise cold and rainy London  night.”
