Testimonials
 

The past 15 months have demonstrated the importance of innovation for the future of our industry. At the same time, it has promoted company culture as the #1 priority for all CEOs. I'm proud to be a member of MESA which has been founded to foster both.

Jelmer van Ast - CEO & Founder, Conference Compass

The last few months have been particularly challenging for our industry. We have all been forced to reinvent ourselves, and to innovate. MESA provides a collaborative environment where people from different backgrounds meet to combine their expertise and learn from each other, offering a common culture for its members as being part of a family unit, trusting each other.

Sébastien Braun - CEO & Founder, idloom

It is an honour to be a Patron Member of MESA. The events industry has given me so much it is only right that I give something back. We all thrive in an environment of support and collaboration.
