I have had the pleasure of knowing and working with Margaret Eagers of MERS for over 15 years. She has been the organiser of several conferences of which I have been the Chair and Convenor.
I have also been on the scientific planning committee for numerous other conferences that she has run for these organisations. Working with Margaret is a dream. She is completely reliable. She always delivers on what she says she will do. She will provide you with the best possible service for the lowest price. She knows how to negotiate to get the best deal from venues. She is a person of honesty and integrity in whom you can have complete trust. She trouble-shoots potential problems before they become big problems. She has dealt with some extremely stressful situations such as those that arose during COVID, necessitating rapid last-minute adaptations to the conference format, all in good humour. She says what she thinks, but that means you too can say what you think and she won’t be offended. Our conferences have always been successful because of Margaret’s incredible hard work. I highly recommend her as a conference convenor. I am happy to be contacted should you require further information. Read here

Margaret Eagers at MERS Events has been the PCO for our WFNR Neuropsychological Rehabilitation Special Interest Group annual conference for many years and has always provided an absolutely excellent service. All of our conferences, wherever they have been in the world, have run smoothly and efficiently. Margaret works closely with the conference convenor, as well as with the local organising group and the scientific committee, which makes organising a successful conference so much easier. Margaret appears to be unflappable, dealing calmly with all of the challenges that inevitably arise when organising international conferences. In the era of the pandemic, MERS Events have responded quickly and efficiently in transferring conferences to run online, and then in a hybrid format, allowing us to keep running high quality scientific meetings. I am looking forward to many more years working with Margaret and MERS Events as organisers of our conferences.

I have worked with Margaret Eagers and MERS since 2002 and together we have organised numerous conferences. I have also worked with other PCOs. In my opinion, Margaret and her team are second to none. They are efficient, friendly, flexible and super organised. Margaret is always on pace with a keen eye for what is required and how to deliver. Conference delegates and speakers all love her friendly approach and her attention to detail. If you want you conference to be successful, I cannot recommend MERS more highly.
Professor of Neuropsychology, UNSW
MERS events are professional and efficient at providing services to manage events and conferences, both in-person and online. Our conference was done in the UK and MERS were always on-hand to help navigate the conference platform, deal with queries from a high number of delegates and help manage speakers and organisers. We cannot recommend MERS events highly enough.

“ME Research Solutions demonstrated an extremely professional and effective approach to their organisation of the recent 2nd National Cannabis Conference 2012 at the Brisbane Convention & Exhibition Centre.
Their attention to detail, timely responses to tight deadlines and general experience and expertise all assisted in making the staging of the Conference a seamless event and contributed to a successful outcome for the event.
For me personally it was an enjoyable experience working with the ME Research Solutions Team.”
