Noteworthy remarks and comments from Diplomats, Staff Representatives and Business Partners:

"I have recently attended the "Diplomatic Conections" Event at the German Embassy, which was wonderful, organized, and very exciting to be part of. I have attended other professional events in the past, but none of them equal the Diplomatic Connections events. This is a very valuable opportunity for any field of business-to-business networking, but also to the Real Estate field. In today's market, the best way to connect with businesses is face-to-face.  Diplomatic Connections has opened a window for the business-to-business Diplomatic/International community that will be very valuable. Thank you, Diplomatic Connections."

"The Diplomatic Connections event at the Embassy of Germany was the most recent link in a successful chain of events promoted professionally by the Diplomatic Connections team in New York and Washington, D.C. The business and hospitality community have an interest in building relationships with the diplomatic community, while the embassies and their diplomats need to meet representatives of the business community on a first-name basis. Diplomats in Washington, D.C. appreciate the benefits of networking and Diplomatic Connections provides the appropriate infrastructure."

"The Diplomatic Connections publication has proven to be our direct line of vital advertising for the Diplomatic and International community in Washington, D.C. and New York City.

"Last month I attended the Diplomatic Connections Reception which the German Embassy kindly hosted. It was a well visited event, obviously also very well organized. I hadn't realized that so many organisations and companies are engaged in the Diplomatic community. I really enjoyed the conversations I had with several representatives of these organisations and companies as well as with fellow diplomats.

It is never easy living in a foreign country. Events like this help you to find your way around and to know who to approach for certain things. Last but not least, the food and service of the staff was great!"

"I had the pleasure of attending a function organized by 'Diplomatic Connections,' in the Spring of 2006. Many diplomats attended this event, which was held in The United Nations Delegates' Dining Room. What a grand affair! I was in awe how Diplomatic Connections conducted and organized this event. The atmosphere was warm and friendly and when it was time to leave, folks lingered until the doors closed. My colleagues and I are still talking about our invitation to the 'grandest affair' in New York City."
