"Forbo Flooring Systems have had and still have a very close alliance with AIS, not having the worry and trouble of organising lunches, attendees, cancellations etc in a busy and competitive environment makes our jobs so much more enjoyable. For any company trying to offer their products and services to an ever-changing and demanding architectural and design market, I/we would recommend AIS as our first preference."
Hilton Gaulbert, Victorian Sales Manager
Forbo Flooring Systems Pty Ltd
"Thank you for the iFlex presentation. It was informative and worthwhile for those who attended. From the presentation, the Autex Quitespace was specified that afternoon by one of the architects that attended. Both Plastamasta and Safety Floors also had products which are of interested to us and will be kept in mind for coming projects."
"Just a quick note to say how valuable I have found the AIS service to be in both my current role with Weathertex and also in a previous role with a commercial focused company. The lunch presentations enable us to have access to a large range of architects and firms that would otherwise be largely un-accessible and I have gained at least half a dozen specifications on large projects as a direct result of the presentations completed and the associated follow-up. The success of the lunches is difficult to gauge on the day but it is the awareness created and contacts made that pays dividends down the track...I continue to highly recommend AIS to colleagues at other companies as I find it a great value tool for gaining quality contacts, leads and specifications."
Stephen Creese, Product Manager VIC/SA
"Just a short note to confirm that Auto Ingress will continue using AIS' services throughout the eastern states. We have found the lunchtime presentations to be beneficial in gaining brand awareness within the architectural profession/industry. It is not always quantifiable, however, we believe it has been beneficial and, as we move forward, we will continue to increase brand awareness through the AIS channel to market medium."
"I want to thank you for your attention to detail in the organisation of Equinox last month. The team here at Tint Design are delighted with the quality of responses we have already received. In my opinion, the AIS presentations combined with Equinox are ideal platforms for us to promote our goods and services to a captive audience of architects and interior designers. We look forward to the next opportunity to work with you."
Paul Hutchinson, Customer Service Manager
"We are in the fortunate position where our resources are fully occupied with expanding relationships with current clients, contacts and leads. Some of which can be directly attributed to us taking part in AIS activities and it is for this we thank you."

"...the iFlex presentations are a fabulous initiative for architectural practices such as ours. The setup and coordination is always direct and focused on what products we’re interested in for our current and future projects."

"I would just like to pass on to you some of the success that my company Enviro Flooring Distributors (Aust) Pty Ltd has achieved since starting with you on the 17 September 2008. Pintari Apartments gym – the project is currently being installed. Paradise Island Resort, Gold Coast – our products have been specified for the Kids Club Playroom. Medical Centre in Cairns and Wesley Hospital gym – these are some of the projects that I have been successful with in a short time and the results are very pleasing. I would like to mention to you that I am very impressed with the professional way in which the iFlex lunches are organised and run."
Norm Hockey, Director
Enviro Flooring Distributors Pty Ltd
"AIS is truly entrenched at the heart of our marketing. This service has been an invaluable solution for us. It has allowed me to forget about subscribing to software services, not have to arrange catering, saved me from having my marketing staff arrange appointments and allowed me to gain an invaluable audience which I have not been able to previously reach. As a business owner trying to reach the market, I don’t have the time nor the extensive budget to see as many of the specifiers as AIS allows me to see. I cannot do without it."
Siang Teoh, General Manager
"...iFlexes have been particularly useful in ensuring our staff are exposed to new products or innovations; and all packaged in an informal but informative way. Our staff can choose to talk to whichever suppliers interest them, ask questions of the representatives and view samples of new products. We would recommend iFlexes to any architectural practice where product knowledge is important but time is scarce."
Mark Clements, Principal
"...We greatly appreciate your coordination of suppliers for our monthly iFlex presentations; they have proved to be an invaluable way of presenting product information to all our staff. Feedback from our staff has indicated that this has been the most successful approach to providing product information..."

“AIS Equinox trade events compliment the monthly iFlex product presentations as the architects and interior designers can see new products and their full ranges at one time. The unique venues add to the ‘buzz’ of the evening. The positive comments I hear from our staff plus those shared in conversations on the evening reinforces the value of this format of product presentation. An added bonus of Equinox events is the opportunity to catch up with peers in the design industry.”
Curtis Sinatra, Librarian
“If I only go to one industry event a year, I make sure it’s Equinox. I get to see new products, chat with reps about my project specifications and catch up with my industry colleagues for a drink – all in one fun evening. It’s always a lively event, especially during the prize draws, and I enjoy experiencing the unique venues where the events are held.”
Mike Musil, Senior Associate
