Dr. Lisa Surridge, Department of English, University of Victoria
Dear Maria and Ashley:
Thank you both for helping us to host such a successful conference this weekend.
Our 80 delegates had nothing but praise for the smoothness of the Laurel Point’s service and staff and its elegant surroundings.
In particular, we are grateful for the quick room changes, prompt AV support, delicious food, and and excellent on-the-spot accommodation of disabilities and allergies. An award-winning UVic student was able to attend because of your excellent accommodation of her celiac condition.
Your staff checked in with me regularly and tactfully to make sure everything was running perfectly and supplied extension cords, podiums, tables, and extra chairs at flying speed when needed to make presentations work. As one delegate wrote to me this morning, ”It was a perfectly organised conference . . . ”
In short, your behind-the-scenes work made it possible for us to host a truly international event and to showcase the best of UVic’s research.
