I think the fact that we chose the Athena to launch the National Dentistry Awards, one of our most prestigious and definitely our largest event in the diary says it all and, as we are celebrating our 11th consecutive year there this December only hi-lights how pleased we are with the excellent customer service, the organisation at the venue and the execution of the event itself.
