Università Commerciale Luigi Bocconi

We’ve been participating in higher education events organized by START! for a few years now and we’ve found ourselves
satisfied with their professional support throughout the whole process: prompt information in the build-up, attentive
assistance on the day and timely follow-up, regardless of the type of event (whether a two-hour presentation or a two-day
fair), always in prime locations.

In the past 6 years, I run all my activities in Russia with START and I do consider this agency the most dynamic and results driven in Russia. A young and well prepared team that grasps a quick understanding of the right student’s target, they also have a sound understanding of the market which allow them to organize excellent events all over Russia.

Polimoda has been working with START! for many years and we had been more than pleased with the services they offered. We took part in their fair “Study in Italy” since the first edition, getting good results in terms of contacts with students as well as branding. START! organized for us Presentations and Fashion Talks in Moscow, SP and Kazan, taking care of all marketing activities related to each event and providing logistic support. The START! team is really well trained, always providing potential students with professional counseling and assistance.

We have been in contact in the recent past with START! and we can attest their excellent professional competence, due to a deep knowledge of the local russian market, and the high quality of their personal approach. All in all a very agile, caring organization which makes it easy to work with and produces the results it promises. Our business school’s experience with START! has proved to be quite fruitful, both in sourcing and interviewing high quality prospects students, and in organizing related events.

Accademia del Lusso

START! is an amazing event management company. I had the pleasure to work with them in several different events in the past and they really considered our target audience and came up with some great branding concepts for the market. Our events flowed smoothly with a large number of attendees and all the guests remarked how much attention to details there was, from the moment they walked into the event to the follow up right after.
I strongly recommend START! and its great services.

I have organized several events over the past 5 years with START!, and I am really satisfied with the services offered.
I organized with them presentations twice a year in Moscow and Saint. Petersburg, and we always had a very satisfactory attendance. During the last presentation in Moscow we even had more than 100 attendees.
START! has been organizing education fairs, and again, their Moscow and Saint Petersburg fair turned out to be the most efficient for our business.
We have been very active online in Russia, and START! Took care of our Russian microsite and our Social Media promotion with positive effects on the final number of enrolled students.
Competent, Innovative and pleasant are the word that better describe START! Staff.
