IN WORDS...

 

«  Je voulais vous remercier pour votre accueil mais surtout vous féliciter pour la qualité de l'événement et son organisation. Je l'avais signalé durant l'événement mais je pense qu'il est aussi important de l'écrire et de le souligner de manière formelle. Tout a glissé de manière fluide du début jusqu'à la fin.
J'ai beaucoup aimé la formule car elle permet d'être focus mais d'un autre côté j'ai regretté après coup que ce soit si court car je n'ai pas vu tous les exposants. Le temps nous a paru trop court en si bonne compagnie. Je pense aussi que d'avoir une équipe internationale comme la votre est un atout majeur. Je trouve que vous avez fait honneur à l'esprit du Sud Ouest

« Thank you so much for the meetings last week in Bordeaux.  I had a few great meetings and we look forward to the coming weeks to detail out any potential collaboration with the producers of Sud-ouest. Thank you again for the lovely opportunity and hope that all of the parties involved in the 2 day meetings had productive and meaningful speaking with each other. »
