Dear Mrs. Leventi,

Regarding our collaboration on the conduct of the 24th EECERA conference 2014 in Hersonissos Crete, I would like to remark the following:

It really was a very significant experience collaborating with you and your collaborators from Ibis el Greco before, during and after the conference as well. Your professionalism, your consistency, your eagerness to resolve the slightest issue, was unprecedented.

As an academic I have participated in tens of international conferences of high prestige in many countries; I also have the experience of organizing conference and have participated in organization committees of many European and global conferences. In none of them so far have I encountered such integral organization and conduct of a conference. All the delegates we astonished and I am sure that they will remember forever the real concept of hospitality that they experienced in Crete the summer of 2014.

As the president of the 24th EECERA 2014 conference, but also on behalf of the organization committee, I would like to thank you and your collaborators from Ibis el Greco, personally for the marvelous job you did. I am wishing you all the best for the future and keep up the work you are doing with the same zest and appetence.

Sincerely yours

Vasilis Grammatikopoulos
Adjunct professor of the University of Crete
President of the 24th EECERA 2014 Conference

Αγαπητή κυρία Λεβέντη,

Στα πλαίσια της συνεργασίας μας στη διεξαγωγή του 24ου συνεδρίου της EECERA 2014 στη Χερσόνησσο Κρήτης, θα ήθελα να επισημάνω τα εξής.

Ήταν πραγματικά μία πολύ σημαντική εμπειρία η συνεργασία μαζί σας και με τα στελέχη του Ibis el Greco πριν, κατά τη διάρκεια, αλλά και μετά το συνέδριο. Η επαγγελματικότητα σας, η συνέπεια σας, η προθυμία σας να επιλύσετε το παραμικρό θέμα ήταν κάτι πρωτόγνωρο.

Ως ακαδημαϊκός έχω συμμετάσχει σε δεκάδες διεθνή συνέδρια υψηλού κύρους σε πολλές χώρες του κόσμου, επίσης έχω εμπειρία από διοργάνωση συνεδρίων καθώς έχω συμμετοχή σε οργανωτικές επιτροπές αρκετών ευρωπαϊκών και παγκοσμίων συνεδρίων. Σε κανένα έως τώρα δεν συνάντησα τόσο άρτια οργάνωση και διεκπεραίωση συνεδρίου. Όλοι οι σύνεδροι έμειναν ενθουσιασμένοι και είμαι σίγουρος ότι θα θυμούνται για πάντα την πραγματική έννοια της φιλοξενίας που συνάντησαν στην Κρήτη το καλοκαίρι του 2014.

Ως πρόεδρος του 24ου συνεδρίου της EECERA 2014, αλλά και εκ μέρους της οργανωτικής επιτροπής θα ήθελα να ευχαριστήσω εσάς προσωπικά και τα στελέχη του Ibis el Greco για την εκπληκτική δουλειά που κάνατε. Σας εύχομαι ότι καλύτερο για τη συνέχεια και να συνεχίσετε πάντα με την ίδια διάθεση και μεράκι.

Με τιμή

As a conference chair I would like to express my highest appreciation and gratitude to Ibis El Greco with whose help and support we managed turn the organization of the International conference on the Physics of Light Matter Coupling in Nanostructures (PLMCN 14) held in Hersonissos, Crete into a truly successful event. Having friendly professional support team of Ibis at my hand at every step of preparation process has been of outmost importance  in organizing this event.

While the Ibis team is sorting out accommodation, registration and submission of the manuscripts from hundreds of conference participants you are able to focus on the most crucial aspect of the preparation including the choice of invited speakers and conference scientific program. The Ibis technical stuff literally provided 24hour support for electronic website maintenance and evaluation process  which is done though a state of the art platform making the work of the evaluators easy and convenient.

Of the foremost importance has been the cultural program prepared through a rigorous screening process without restrictions and made to match the highest expectations of the conference participants. Once the targets are set the Ibis team is there to make it a smooth ride for you. Cost saving without compromising the success of the event has been the philosophy throughout the preparation process.Without a doubt, I strongly recommend the Ibis team to make it a truly unforgettable experience for you and all of the conference participants!

Dear Mrs Leventi,
On behalf of the organizers of the 25th European Health Psychology Conference, I would like to cordially thank you and the members of your team, for managing our conference in an outstanding and really professional way. The annual European Health Psychology Conference was held this year in Hersonissos, September 20-24, 2011, and was organized by the Department of Psychology, University of Crete and the Division of Clinical and Health Psychology of the Hellenic Psychological Society.

More than 900 participants attended our Conference, a fact that renders it as the larger so far in the history of the European Health Psychology Society. Furthermore, it seems to be one of the more successful in all aspects: the scientific and the social programme, the facilities, accommodation etc.

I believe that your contribution to the great success of the Conference was catalytic.

From the moment that we undertook the responsibility of organizing the Conference, until the very last second of the Conference your assistance was unique and most effective. Not just the organizers, but also every delegate had only good things to say for you as a person, your associates, and the entire organization endeavour.

Therefore, I would like once more to express my gratitude to you and your company for the excellent collaboration.

Looking forward to our next cooperation,

The 2008 EPS Conference on Plasma Physics was held in Hersonissos, Crete, Greece, at the Creta Maris Maris Conference Center, on June 9-13th 2008.

The Conference was organized by the Institute of Electronic Structure and Laser FORTH and the Association EURATOM-Hellenic Republics, the conference logistics were assigned to the company Ibis El Greco S.A.

The company Ibis El Greco did an excellent job, very professional, in organizing the Conference. The Buses were on time, the scientific presentations were coordinated without a hitch, the social events were superb with plenty of wine. Some of the comments I received, regarding the Conference were:

"I have been to all EPS Conferences since 1973, this was the best ', "there was nothing more to be done to improve the organization of the Conference".

I would like to thank Mrs Maria Leventi and her colleagues from Ibis El Greco for the excellent job she and her group did for EPS2008.

Dear Mrs Leventi,
I address you this letter, because I would like to thank you personally as well as all your partners for your contribution at the organization of the European Conference Psyche-Fedora 2007, which was held at the Psychology Dept of the University of Crete at Rethymnon, 5-8 September 2007.
Our conference has been a big success and all delegates were satisfied. Everybody had the best impression on the organization of the conference, the website, the registration, the accommodation, the transfers.
I hope to have in the future the opportunity to collaborate with you again.

Sincerely Yours,
Evangelos Karademas

Hello Maria,
I want to thank you and your agency for all of the help you provided us in our recent trip to Crete and Greece!  The post-conference arrangements all took place smoothly and without problem.  We rode the public bus to Heraklion and caught the Flying CAT and had a nice ride to Santorini - such a beautiful place (as was Crete) that we hope to return to. Our flight to Rodos and then from Rodos back to Athens also were smooth. We had the trip of a lifetime and are appreciative of your help – we brought some Nescafe and Ouzo back to help us remember our trip until we can return!
Thanks again and best wishes,

Maria, before getting sucked back into my workaholic life, I want to thank
you, for all you did to make the IARR conference such a pleasure.  It was an excellent conference in every respect:  facilities, quality of the presentations, atmosphere, participants' morale, and a lot of that had to do with how well everything was organized, the beauty of Crete, the quality of the special events, and so on.  And I know you put out a lot of energy and good judgment to make it all happen.

Dear Maria,
How nice to hear from you! It was such a pleasure to meet you. You did
a great job on the conference! I really appreciate all of the work you did and extra accommodations you made for me and my family. We had such a wonderful time. I loved Greece and can hardly wait to come back!

Thank you so much. I hope the rest of your summer has been less busy
(although I can't imagine you not working hard)!
Warm regards, Bev

Dear Maria,
First of all I want to thank you and all the other IBIS staff for a very good co-operation, assistance and help which was done not only professional but also very personally so all the delegates and ICS staff felt very well treated and taken care of even if we felt rather stressed the first days. I hope we will have the possibility of working together another time. I hope you have a little time to relax now before the next event. We landed in Copenhagen yesterday on time scheduled, even if we were delayed about one hour from Crete.Med venlig hilsen/Yours sincerely

Liebe Silke,
Ich fand's in Kreta - wie auch alle meine Kollegen - einfach wunder schön;unser Chef hat als Abschluss gemeint, dies war der beste Auftritt, den wir je auf einem Kongress hatten! Von unseren Kunden bekam ich teilweise überwältigende Rückantworten -besonders wurde auch das Dinner-Event im Lychnostatis gelobt. Es hat mich auch unheimlich gefreut, dich persönlich kennenzulernen, und möchte Dir für deine Hilfe und immer absolut schnelle und liebe.Unterstützung danken, Du hast mir vor ort unheimlich geholfen!!! Sollten wir in der Zukunft etwas in Griechenland planen, dann nur mit Ibis.

Hi Maria,
As always, a bit behind in correspondence, but I just wanted to add my voice to all the thanks that must have come your way for the superb job done on the ECFS Crete Conference.  It was a great pleasure to work with you and your colleagues on the project, and clearly the delegates were happy.  I also think it is was fantastic that you offered to give the introduction to the Dance group at the Opening Ceremony, and did a wonderful job with that.  I guess you are busy preparing for other conferences, but who knows, perhaps our paths will cross again…I would like to think so. Thank you again for the great cooperation.

Best wishes
