Can Factory worked with the Scottish Executive, British Council, the Foreign & Commonwealth Office, and numerous 3rd parties to deliver the 15th Conference for Commonwealth Education Ministers in Edinburgh in 2003.
Can Factory’s team were responsible for the implementation of live inter-venue broadcasts to allow youth delegates to attend the conference at the EICC from nearby Murrayfield stadium. We also negotiated the provision and implementation of Internet cafes via joint sponsors Sun and Cisco at both venues, as well as providing on-site IT support and advice throughout the conference.
Following the success of the 15th Conference of Commonwealth Education Ministers, I would like to say thank you for your invaluable help during the event. Both yours and Stuart’s priceless advice, input and expertise made the conference one to remember for all who took part. We have had excellent feedback from the Commonwealth Secretary-General, Commonwealth Ministers and other delegates about the hard work and effort all the staff put into the event. Once again, thank you for all of your efforts and I look forward to working with you again in the near future.
On behalf of the British Council, we would like to thank you and all at Can Factory for the support you gave to the 15CCEM Parallel Symposium. It was great working with you and the technical support was excellent. Many of the Symposium delegates and speakers have commented on the high level of this technical support throughout the event. It certainly allowed us to concentrate on the programme knowing that other experts were working on the technical framework to make it all happen. Overall, the event went extremely well and we are certainly pleased with the outcomes from the Parallel Symposium. Thanks again to you and your team.
"It was the best service I have used in any international conference...I would strongly recommend it to similar events in future!"
