“Thank you so much for making my first Hypenica experiences a mindblower and most definitely agood business choice made in reference to the response on the show and the 42 and counting e-mail quotes I have to respond to…this besides the networking deals made at the show. I can only speak volumes about the team”.

“We also want to commend you for the success with The Knowledge Lounge. We noticed how this aspect transformed the CCE compared to last year. Judged by the engagement, we expect that the CCE as an event (also the JHB events in May) has new relevance and so doing, bringing more interest and opportunities for the industry to connect and influence one another for the better of all – exactly what you & we want, right. We feel privileged to be part of this process”.
Francois Swanepoel, (fusionBIM)

“I was so chuffed with the set-up, from registration to the expo itself. Our Department had a valuable display as well, we hope the smaller contractors will come on board and do business with us and we had a useful guide on how to tender. The Digital Knowledge Lounge was informative. We are considering getting a BIM for one of our Portfolios because of what we learned”.
