Testimonials Global Forum 2024 

'This Forum sets great example on how meeting should be organised: full of engagement with fellow participants, speakers and organisers, and encouraging and practical take-aways for associations.' 

Linh To, Event and Project Manager, Worldchefs

'Meet with people at a meeting about meetings. It sounds awful. But it was amazing. I have run so many meetings but this event made me realised that my cut-and-paste approach needs significant updating. I have arrived home super-stoked to change up the way we do things. My committee won't know what has hit them.' 

Prof Lesley Sloss, International Project Manager, International Centre for Sustainable Carbon

'The BestCities Global Forum offered the perfect mix of an educational program, opportunities to meet potential future destination partners, and excellent networking opportunities due to a small group. I enjoyed the forum immensely and can wholeheartedly recommend it to other international associations.' 

Christin Herger, Director Global Events, World Association of News Publishers
