Commenting on the impact of the agreement, Congrex Chief Executive Officer, David Wade-Smith said, “This joint venture is a perfect example of how a partnership approach always works best. I am absolutely certain that Congrex’s efficient and imaginative conference service delivery will contribute to the already highly acknowledged service portfolio of q.media.”

We strongly believe that together q.media and Congrex has the potential to thrive.”
