27 Apr Private MICE Forum
We were one of a select group of agencies and corporate buyers asked to attend the Private MICE Forum with Great Hotels of the World. This was held in Baveno on Lake Maggiore in Italy, a great location just 40 minutes transfer from Milan Malpensa Airport.
The 3 day forum brought together buyers and suppliers (who are members of Great Hotels of the World) for a series of individual appointments and networking to build relationships and find out more about how we can all work together. Here at Seven Events we’re always keen to expand our knowledge and find out about destinations and venues that we’re not as familiar with, and forums such as these are a great way to do it.
Hosted by Zacchera Hotels and Grand Hotel Dino the accommodation was lovely in a very beautiful setting on the lake. Despite the sun not always shining we could still see the beauty of the area and always think that if somewhere looks stunning whilst cloudy then in the right weather it would be picture perfect.
We were able to island hop by boat on the first night to sample local cuisine, whilst on the second night we were treated to the Two Michellin Star treatment at Piccolo Lago in the most fabulous setting. A whistle stop tour of the Palace at Isola Bella, along with exploring the town of Stresa were highlights of the activity on one of the afternoons.
Great relationships were formed and we’d certainly recommend the area around Lake Maggiore for upcoming events.
