Photos of the Event


The event was amazing and the feedback is a testament to our success. Being in Rwanda, we feel it only right to first highlight representatives from this country.

“Rwanda Institute of Architects (RIA) kindly applause the outstanding efforts and initiatives of ACE event organisers, who put together all necessary means and a concise structure to make this happen in an effective and interactive environment”  

In addition to this feedback Bonny Rutembesa, Executive Secretary of the Institute of Engineers Rwanda makes three (3) points:

  1. The event was highly publicised both in Rwanda and outside the Country and yet you were working outside the Country! It was quite amazing the way you were coordinating the planning, flow of information and decision making and yet you were not on the ground! It portrays a high level of professionalism.

  2. The quality of the selected topics and presenters including the CPD itself was of high standing .

  3. A very high level mobilisation to attract a big number of exhibitors and sponsors to the event ! It was quite amazing to see a big number of exhibitors and sponsors mobilised within a short period!! Also the setup at the event that enable the workshop participants to interact and to network with the exhibitors mostly especially during the coffee and lunch breaks was quite interesting !

Exhibitors’ Comments:

The organization for the exhibition was super and we were able to come out with an immediate sale as well as very good contacts for follow ups.
