IEEE Conference on Control Technology and Applications - CCTA - August 2018
As General Chair of the 2018 IEEE Conference on Control Applications and Technology, I really appreciated the collaboration with DIS Congress Service A/S. The company showed a high degree of responsibility and willingness to walk the extra mile whenever this was required in the organization of this large and rather complex conference. Our delegates unanimously expressed a very high level of satisfaction.

15th European Society for Traumatic Stress Studies Conference - ESTSS - June 2017
From the University of Southern Denmark, we would like to express our sincere gratitude to Peder, Melena and the rest of the DIS team. While organizing the 15th European Society for Traumatic Stress Studies Conference, with more than 500 international researchers and practitioners, DIS demonstrated high professionalism and proved to be both helpful and flexible towards our needs. We felt in safe hands and received experienced recommendation while both planning and executing the conference. We would recommend DIS to anyone taking on the great responsibility of organizing a conference. Once again, thank you.

Annual European Rheology Conference - AERC - April 2017
Organizing an international scientific conference with 460 delegates would not have been possible without a professional congress organizer, and DIS was an excellent choice for us. Having Marianne Sjødahl from DIS as a project manager we could focus on the scientific content, while she was taking care of the practical arrangements, including registrations and invoicing. In addition, based on her experience, she could readily suggest us venues and providers, for example for the conference dinner and entertainment, which saved us from lot of extra work. With her professionalism and excellent organizational skills we could rest assured that everything was under control both before, during, and after the conference. Through her, also the communication with the venue hotel, as well as other external providers worked seamlessly. The conference website was also created and managed by DIS, with Rikke Blæsborg as the responsible person. The website was praised for its functionality, clear layout, and user-friendliness. I can highly recommend DIS as a professional partner for organizing any similar event.

EADV - October 2015
Dear DIS team,
I wish to thank you for your outstanding and highly professional work and support to us in making the 24th EADV Congress 8 - 11 October 2015 held at the Bella Center, Copenhagen a great success. Under the professional leadership of Helle Klestrup, the team worked hard and seamlessly, sometimes under great pressure, in making the stay of our 10,000 participants a pleasant one during their time in Copenhagen. As it is extremely important for any international congress organiser to have a local reliable and professional support, DIS with its always friendly team was valuable for us in providing local services, giving us advice as well as finding solutions to problems.
I can warmly recommend this team, who was always prepared to go an extra mile for us to ensure the best possible service, to any international congress organiser hosting a congress in Denmark.
Thank you DIS!

European Climate Change Adaptation Conference - ECCA - May 2015
I chaired the Second Climate Change Adaptation conference (ECCA2015) on behalf of the European Commission in 2015. DIS was our PCO in the process both leading up to, during and after the conference. The conference took place in Copenhagen (Bella Center) with 800+ participants from 46 countries. We had DI; The European Environmental Agency; and Københavns Kommune (by Lykke Leonardsen) as co-organizers.
DIS provided excellent support to me and the conference in setting it up and ensuring a smooth execution of the event. I can give my warmest support to DIS in handling climate related events like ECCA2015, and I am sure they will provide as great support for future conferences.

FIDE - May 2014
It is with pleasure that I on behalf of the Danish Association of European Law and the Faculty of Law, University of Copenhagen write this letter of recommendation for DIS Congress Service A/S.
Your support on the XXVI FIDE Congress in Copenhagen in 2014 was impressive. It was clear to us from the outset, that DIS – and Marianne Sjødahl in particular – was very experienced in organising sizeable academic events.
Our collaboration with Marianne was flawless. She was relentless when working to ensure the best interests of the Congress, highly efficient and always smiling and easy-going.
All were priceless qualities. Both during the planning process, but especially in the days just before and of course during the Congress itself, when pressure was at a peak!
Based on our experiences we can only recommend DIS Congress Service to future organising committees. Also if you do not think you need a professional congress organiser to help you; believe us – you do!

Eurovision Song Contest - May 2014
Copenhagen had a number of duties as host city for Eurovision Song Contest 2014. To manage these duties, The City of Copenhagen, the Capital Region of Denmark and Wonderful Copenhagen created a private limited company: Projektselskabet ESC 2014 ApS, also called Host City Copenhagen (HCC).
HCC used DIS Congress Service for handling of the following services:
- Accommodation for the official guests: delegations, press, organizers etc. (approx. 3.500 persons)
- Accreditation of the official guests, staff, service providers etc. (approx. 10,000 accreditations)
DIS handled these conditions with great professionalism and patience.
DIS managed the accommodation services from negotiations with the hotels to managing the reservations. DIS kept us updated on the progress on a regular basis, and we had entirely confidence in them. They did everything to the guests', hotels' and our great satisfaction. With regards to the accreditation we had a close collaboration, with daily contact.
To conclude, it was a great pleasure working with DIS – they have a thorough knowledge of the field, are efficient, experienced, as well as trustworthy. Moreover, they are flexible and have the required ballast to cope with new situations and changes. I warmly recommend DIS Congress Service as a reliable partner.

European Society for Trauma and Dissociation - ESTD - March 2014
I am writing to tell you delighted I have been with every aspect of how your congress service, DIS, handled my organization’s conference in Copenhagen in March 2014. As you know, we first met in late 2011 when we agreed to have your organization help to coordinate the biennial conference of the European Society for Trauma and Dissociation – an organization of psychological clinicians and researchers dedicated to understanding and treating posttraumatic and dissociative disorders. We first worked with Melena Schjøth, who was brilliant with all the early details – helping to finalise the venue, choose a restaurant for the conference dinner, and all the practical aspects of organizing a conference. We all felt very secure in her hands and frankly, I was more than a little nervous when she left on maternity leave less than a year before the conference began. But the transition to a new organizer, Marianne Sjødahl, was absolutely seamless, which speaks volumes about the professionalism and training of your staff. Marianne did a terrific job with the details leading up to the conference, including the conference abstracts, reworking aspects of our contract with the Tivoli Conference Centre, etc. I particularly appreciated her constant efforts to save the organization money, reworking the budget time and again, and her terrific work onsite, at the conference itself. Small problems came up, as they always do, but they were handled with as little fuss as possible and I was bothered as little as possible. All details were dealt with in a thoroughly professional manner, and I also had the distinct feeling – with both Melena and Marianne – that they really enjoyed their work. Our interactions were always pleasant and easy, which made all the usual stress of mounting a conference just that much easier.
I have chaired three previous conferences, and have never had as positive an experience as this. The conference was a great success, both professionally and financially, and DIS certainly deserves considerably credit for that. I would heartily recommend DIS to anyone considering holding a conference in Denmark.
Best wishes to you and your staff,

15th European Congress of Endocrinology - ECE - April 2013
I am pleased to provide a recommendation for DIS Congress Services. Bioscientifica worked alongside DIS Congress on the extremely successful 15th European Congress of Endocrinology (ECE) in Copenhagen in May 2013. DIS Congress were responsible for all local arrangements of the congress acting as our destination management company, including specifically the accommodation management for the 3000 delegates as well as providing support with the transport requirements and managing the social activities of the event.The DIS team, who also provided administration support on the registration desk for the duration of the meeting were professional and extremely efficient. The overall management of the DIS Congress responsibilities under the expert guidance of Helle Klestrup made the overall experience of managing a meeting in this vibrant city a real pleasure. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend DIS Congress Services for any PCO or DMC requirements you may have.
