I cannot fault the performance or services of the ACC at all. Your staff were excellent. Everything was brilliant. Feedback from our 300 staff who attended has been 100% positive, which is attributed to your high level of service. The whole event was seamless. No problem seemed too hard or too difficult for your staff to resolve. Thank you!
