Michelle made my job so much easier with her quick responses, patience and professionalism. I was sending 3 people to Anuga at the last minute and her help in finding lodging at a reasonable price, good location and quality hotel was outstanding. You have a winner with Michelle! She's definitely management material.

Our visitors for the event
Everything went well and the hotel was well suited to the fair.
The Novotel was a comfortable, clean, modern and efficient location for attending the Ligna show.
Depending on the group attending the Ligna show, another option would be Hannover Old Town which is a short walk further and adds a historic German/European experience. Most evenings we walked to this area for dinner from the Novotel.
Everything was perfect
I will contact you again next year
My colleagues were satisfied and the position of the hotel was fine to reach the fair.
It wasnt a top standard hotel but for the price we paid and the quality we received we are okay with it.

Dear Megan, Dear Edward,
Thank you for your message.
Here the feed back of the hotel :
Manager of the hotel: very kind
Room: larg and clean
Location: located in an industrial area, no restaurant nearby and a little away from the event .
It’s always a pleasure to work with you.
Talk to you soon.
All went fine, we enjoyed the hotel due to its walking distance location, but the only downside was the breakfast.

Thanks for reaching me out. Tom Parker was very helpful and patient as we did so many changes due to the pandemic situation not so easy to manage.
For the future we would prefer to include the breakfast in the negotiation with the hotel.
I will leave my feedback in the link you provided soon.
Good morning Tess
All was perfect at Novotel.
Dear M. Parker,
The hotel was very great.
Close to the messe and the city by metro and very convenient. It was very close to the metro. close to the center (10 min) 30 min to the messe Great Brekfast. The room was clean, and we have a present : chocolate, water and coffee.
I think we want to reserve the same hotel next year 😉
Quick response and adequate handling when booking needs to be adjusted. Happy that the search for hotels during trade fairs is taking out of our hands to save valuable time.
Everything was great with the hotel and my trip to Barcelona! Thank you!
