We had the pleasure to have Elisabeth in our annual event MICE in Quito - Ecuador in 2016.

I had the pleasure to work with Elisabeth Hansa as part of the assessment group for the architectural competition ”Skellefteå kulturhus med hotell” – Cultural centre and hotel in Skellefteå – which was conducted by the municipality with the support of the association Architects Sweden in 2016. Her knowledge and expertise, as well as her strong involvement throughout the process was very valuable to the assessment work of the jury. The extensive experience of Elisabeth Hansa, as an internationally well-known consultant in the field of conferences and the event industry, was well appreciated and a clear asset to the process. I would highly recommend Elisabeth Hansa as a consultant for assessing similar projects.

From March to May 2014 Elisabeth Hansa provided support and consultation with the evaluation and development of the potential of the cities of Kiev, Lviv, Donetsk and Charkiv with respect to the meetings industry as part of the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit GmbH (GIZ) project Consulting of the municipal administrations of the Euro 2012 destinations. This cooperation resulted in the establishment of conference offices in the cities of Lviv and Kiev and, thanks to her large international network, the first steps towards international recognition. We can highly recommend Elisabeth Hansa as an expert and effective consultant for the meetings and event industry. Last but not least, alongside her unquestionable expertise, Elisabeth Hansa’s friendly and cordial nature mean that working with her not only produces results, but is also a very pleasant experience.

Elisabeth Hansa oversees the specialised segments meeting industry and event management and shares her vast professional experience as well as her profound knowledge in the area of organisation and economic management of all types of events. The targeted combination of theory and practical information is key for degree programmes with strong focus on business administration. Elisabeth Hansa mastered this task in an excellent way and students in Krems and in Baku very much appreciate her ability to explain even complex contexts in a clear way.

We all grew up in the business together with our clients and had basically the same knowledge background. One of the issues I see now is that a lot is asked of sales people who know less than the clients who are becoming more and more sophisticated. Deep knowledge, a broad understanding of the client’s needs, issues and expectations, an understanding of industry trends and the ability to act as a true adviser to the client are all pre-requisites for a successful sales executive. I have always been a great believer in a long term sales and marketing strategy. In this highly competitive market it is not easy to stand out, but in my view a long term vision and implementation strategy always wins over short-term opportunism. Ben Goedegebuure, Maritz Travel
…and of course a strategic focus for their work. Elizabeth Hansa's professional experience and expertise make her the ideal person to work with conference centre sales staff to teach them everything they need to know in order to be more effective in winning meetings and events for their venues.
