Many thanks to you and all your colleagues for organising such a smooth running conference. I know what goes into organising such an event and I thought you did an excellent job! We all felt very well looked after.

Thanks too for organising all the travel and accommodation for me and my colleagues.  All best,

We had the pleasure of working with FSR and particularly Fernanda and Marcia in the design and build out of our Rio 2016 Hospitality Suite at the Sheraton in Leblon. From the initial designs to the final product, their attention to detail, creativity and really ‘listening’ to the scope and budget made this project seamless. The feedback from our client was “this is the best space we’ve created in the last 4 Olympics” and all of the credit goes to the FSR delivery team. It would be our privilege to partner again in Rio or elsewhere!!
