Stephen Hilton - Service Director Bristol Futures, Bristol City Council

Bristol City Council has worked with NG Events Ltd on 3 separate occasions – Roadshows in 2009 and 2012 and the NextGen 11 Conference in November 2011. Having also presented and attended various NG events run conferences and meetings in the UK, I know the team, their operations, events and organization well. For Bristol City Council, the NG Events team consistently delivered high value events that showcased the best of Bristol alongside national and international digital developments. The events provided a platform to showcase best practice from local enterprises, SMEs universities and the Council alongside broader national and global developments. The events, through the speakers, content, exhibitors and delegates stimulated debate, enabled innovative thinking and provided excellent opportunities for networking and doing business.

NG Events directors Andrew Macdonald and Marit Hendriks are a joy to work with and maintain a friendly, professional, client oriented and productive relationship throughout. Should the opportunity arise then I will not hesitate to invite NG Events Ltd back to Bristol for another of their extremely well organized and well-received high profile events.

Raj Mack - Head of Digital Birmingham, Birmingham City Council


Birmingham City Council was delighted to host the prestigious 2-day NextGen 10 Conference at the International Convention Centre in November 2010 and a one day NextGen Roadshow in 2009. The events were well received by the Leadership of the Council and attained their goal of highlighting Birmingham’s digital achievements - and their importance for the development of enterprise, innovation and inward investment - to a wide audience. The conference also received glowing reviews from delegates.

I am a regular speaker and contributor at events run by NG Events Ltd, including an excellent Parliamentary breakfast briefing in 2013. The NG Events team is professional, knowledgeable and delivers above and beyond expectation. Directors Marit Hendriks and Andrew Macdonald excel in what they do and I wholeheartedly recommend NG Events Ltd to anyone considering hosting or developing an event. As a result of the work, we re-engaged Marit to support the delivery of our 3 day Beyond 2010 Conference. I would be happy to recommend the NG Events Team.
