  • Just a quick letter to express our thanks for all your company’s help and expertise in preparation for our annual conference and party political conferences this year. The driving game proved to be a great draw to the stand and I think strongly reflected the messages we wanted to get across. I know you were again up against tight deadlines and we appreciated the hard work your team put in to making our exhibition stand a success.

    Rosa Van der Meersch, Head of Publishing, LGA
  • Further to my phone call last week, I wanted to again write and thank Hartnell Creative Communication Ltd for all its fine work and cooperation in the run-up to the recent round of party conferences. We were very pleased by the eye-catching tent and impressed with the reception we received from delegates at each of the three party conferences. We were of course especially pleased to win “Best Stand, open space category” at last September’s Labour Party Conference in Brighton...

  • Last Friday the latest Sea Life Centre in Munich opened to the public with a blaze of publicity. It was extremely busy over the weekend and the reactions from the visitors have been very good. As ever my thanks to everyone involved in delivering this project. I and my team look forward to working with you again on the next project.

    Grant Stenhouse, Merlin Entertainments
  • Thank you very much for all your hard work on this project, it has made a huge difference to Rainbow’s presentation and we are all pleased with our new corporate image. Hartnell’s professional approach has ensured that the original brief has been adhered to, with the result that the brochure is eye catching and provides with a serious professional image. Please extend our thanks to the whole team who were reassuring and met all our very tight deadlines.

  • I am writing to thank you for helping to produce a fantastic event at Chelsea Village last night. The evening was a great success and the creative input was central to making a wonderful opportunity to bring the work of Rethink to an important new audience. With your help we renewed some existing contacts and made many more new contacts... these people will greatly assist us in our work. Once again thank you and please pass on our thanks to your team.

    Cliff Prior, Chief Executive, Rethink
  • I am writing to thank you for the amazing stand concept, design and advertising that Hartnell Creative Communication developed for RNIB’s presence at the 1999 Party Conferences. You produced for us a stand that not only successfully and memorably communicated our campaign message but that generated a level of interest and awareness in RNIB and our campaign that we could not have otherwise achieved in that environment.

    Helen Dearman, Campaigns Co-ordinator, RNIB
  • Can I take this opportunity of formally thanking you for all your hard work and especially for the creativity of your design which played such an important part in enabling us to win first prize at the Labour Conference…

    Stewart Goodwin, Director of Corporate Affairs, Police Federation
  • Thank you and all your design, technical and construction team for the creativity, hard work and highest professional standards that went into the stand you created for us at the British Travel Trade Fair. Your help in presenting ETC in an innovative, interesting, intelligent, informative, interactive and impressive way has contributed enormously to the perception of our organisation, you have positively reinforced ETC’s profile and reputation. It was without doubt the most outstanding stand at the Fair and the best I have ever seen.

    Naomi Cohen, English Tourism Council
  • A quick note to acknowledge your winning streak at this year’s party conferences, and to thank you for all your efforts with our own stand, particularly the tricky configuration of the re-designed presentation which was not your own work. The stand has been a very good investment over the last three years and has always looked fresh and new.

    Stephen Hardwick, Head of Group Government & External Affairs, BAA
  • I just wanted to take the opportunity to say thank you to yourself and the team at Hartnell’s for the hard work you put into our exhibition for this years Labour Party Annual Conference. The stand was a great success as expected and the on site attendance in Brighton was fantastic as usual. Congratulations on your continues success of best stand.
