“I would like to extend my deepest appreciation to your colleagues, Ms Elaine Yap and Mr Fendy Samadi, for the tireless assistance rendered in the lead up to and during the running of the Inter-Governmental Commission that was held on 10 September 2014. The event was a great success, in no small part due to the effort put in by both Elaine and Fendy. They were flexible and willing to help to the best of their ability when we required last-minute assistance (e.g. requiring more headsets and overnight setup) and I am happy to inform you that the interpretation systems worked without a hitch during the event. In this connection, I would be grateful if you could kindly extend a commendation to both Fendy and Elaine for their excellent performance throughout the IGC. We look forward to working with them again..”

“The G20 Leaders’ Summit brought together 34 leaders and 5,300 delegates from across the world for an event that depended on easy communications across 14 languages. Congress Rental provided interpretation equipment for use at three venues at the G20 Leaders’ Summit, held in Brisbane on 15-16 November 2014. Congress delivered the equipment under tight constraints and worked tirelessly to ensure the equipment was delivered and installed on time. The systems performed perfectly at each venue, playing a crucial role in the success of the event. CEO Jeremy Ducklin and his team understood the requirements for interpretation systems from the perspectives of customers and interpreters, ensuring a flawless performance for the G20 Leaders’ Summit.”

"I used Congress Rental for simultaneous interpretation equipment during our recent training session in Singapore. During the set-up and the week-long program, I found the technicians very professional and knowledgeable about the equipment and they were easy to work with. During set-up I identified a technical issue that I wanted adjusted. The technicians were very willing and capable to resolve the issue for me.
They listened to what I wanted and then made the adjustments accordingly. I was very impressed by their focus on my needs. The Bosch Ng Microphones and Integrus receiver system we used was very reliable with excellent sound quality and importantly very easy to use for both the facilitators and participants. We are using Congress rental for our next program in Singapore and I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a professional company with high quality technicians and reliable, easy to use equipment."
— Greg Dunn, Training Lead
"I should really thank you for all of the work. The client was getting really nervous because the president and other head of the company were attending this meeting and any failure was never an option. I would like to say thank you to both of you for taking this job and all of your support all the way through. "
"Thank you very much for the excellent support from your team in our Seminar. Salute to your Team (Especially to Fendy) for their Hard work and professionalism."

"I would like to take this opportunity to thanks Asrol for his outstanding support during the 3 days event. He was not only professional and helpful as well. There were times where the AV system in the hotel was not working, he was there to help out even though it is not his duty to do so. He was there all the time to give full support and finally move towards successful completion of event. Our questions were all impromptu and he managed to complete our task, even thought we did not have enough time to execute all the questions. "
— Yvonne Lew - Personal Assistant, Biopharma, APAC
"Alphonso the sales guy did his best to prepare the equipment we needed even though this was a last minute request. We received all the items at good prices. Fendy, the engineer, was very experienced, he did a great job during our event. We are very satisfied, thankyou to you both."
— Y Karumai, OMC
"Asrol was very helpful while onsite. He performed over and above his duties by operating our switcher units during the times when our own onsite producer was occupied elsewhere."
— Sharmaine Selvakumar, Platts
"Elaine Yap, the sales co-ordinator was pleasant and demonstrated a great understanding of what we needed for our event. We had a good experience with Congress Rental and the technical solution that they provided was value for money."
— Winnie Young, Jack Morton
"I had worked with Congress Rental previously through my involvement with Faber Image, TEC and Concept 360. I had also worked with their managing director Jeremy Ducklin on a number of events for Stand Chart Leadership. Even though this was a last minute job, our event preparation went very well with great follow-up from Elaine and Fendi who always gave their best effort. The Clikapad voting system they provided was very easy to understand and use."
—Nicholas Wong, Auditoire
"Everything went well despite the initial part where the interpreters had some difficulties in simultaneously translating our speaker (Our speaker spoke too quickly, but she toned down after a while, so all is well). With that, some comments/recommendations are as follows:
1. The setup was rapid and your guys tested the system and made sure the background noise was minimal even though we could not really hear anything about the background noise, but your guys insisited to eliminate)
2. Your team made sure there were more equipment than adequate, even though we initially only asked for 40 only. Really appreciate the good effort.
3. The interpreters were very punctual and even make sure everything was running properly before commencement. Note to Natalia who came 2 hours beforehand to prepare herself for this event.
4. The Equipment had 0 failure rates for all the participants which shows the good quality of the equipment.
The only slight negative aspect of your service is the slightly high price, but was quickly covered up by your quality of equipment and team. Thank you and we will definitely be engaging your services in future. "
— Erin Yap, MORITA Dental Asia PTE.LTD
“Thank you for the very professional and personalized service that was rendered at our recent event at Suntec. I am particularly grateful for your flexibility in accommodating the changes along the way especially the last minute reduction in the number of half booths. I have no doubt that BSF will approach you to service this event once again if and when it is held in Singapore in three year's time. ”
— Dr Clarence Tan, Area Advisor, Bible Study Fellowship
“Thank you so very much for your kind help and guidance. You have no idea how much your help has meant!”

“We have been working with Congress Rental for some time now. They are our GO TO solution vendor, they know exactly what we need, and it has been an easy and wonderful experience working with them. As part of the management team, I am always on a lookout to make our event innovative, interesting and more cost-effective. Congress Rental came out with an ingenious idea to have a remote interpretation. This allows the interpreter to interpret in their native countries without having them to fly to the venue, which saves us time, cost and hassle for making arrangement and coordinating for flights and accommodation. Moreover, I was able to supervise the rehearsal from Singapore with the real-time video and sound feed from Congress Rental. This was an extremely important feature for me so I can remotely monitor what was happening in Tokyo. Remote interpretation was completely new to us and we were sceptical at first to try it out on an important event with 2000 pax. However, having discussed with Alphonso (Singapore Sales Manager) multiple times, we were reassured that everything will be okay if we followed the guidelines given by them. The event went smooth, and our delegates were happy about the interpretation services. I want to thank Alphonso and team for their support. Great job!"
