It’s a wrap: the first edition of our new MICE event The Roadshow was a success! In five days we traveled from Amsterdam to Brussels, Dusseldorf, Munich and Warsaw and met with interesting MICE specialists from all over Europe. Exhibitors showed their destinations and products, guests enjoyed inspiring speakers perform, watched special photography and art exhibitions and created a ‘live art piece’ together inspired by this year’s theme: ‘Art & the City’. In total we welcomed around 190 guests. Curious? Please find a short impression below:

Famous City Amsterdam
The kick-off of The Roadshow  took place in Amsterdam. During this first event in Amsterdam special speakers rocked the stage: Robin Cox of Citinerary and Valerie Reinhold of Redprint: dna shared their vision on how to promote a city / destination, seen through the eyes of the locals or from a personal point of view. Impressive images from the book Famous City Amsterdam (of well known photographer Marte Visser) were exposed throughout the venue and created a inspiring environment for the MICE meetings. Special live entertainment by singer and performer Siobhan de Jong.

Valencia – Art, Technology and Paella

  • A beautiful Mediterranean destination
  • The birthplace of the real Spanish Paella
  • Many Restaurant and Venues for different sizes of events
  • A Great Climate nearly all year round
  • Perfect blend of style, an Ancient centre full of history and a very modern area near the River
  • The best of the Mediterranean Flavour!

Valencia can be a city of clichés: the light, the moon, the gun-powder, the paella, the flowers, the fallas… they are keys which attempt to explain what words cannot tell. It is necessary to visit and get to know Valencia to verify that centenary traditions live together with modernity; that sea and city are compatible; that the green color of farms can be kept together with a modern urban scheme; that Valencia is unique at night and during the day.
But the capital of the river Turia is more than that. In addition to the innumerable attractions which the city has had for years, now there is a series of showy infrastructures such as the Ciudad de las Artes y las Ciencias (City of Arts and Sciences) and the Museo Príncipe Felipe (Prince Philip Museum) which, as they are located in this environment, are linked to culture. Valencia has put the icing on the cake, although it will not have a rest and will go on decorating its succulent presentation.
Valencia used to be a nice provincial City, but after the “Americas Cup” and the Formula 1, its become a very International, brilliant and great place where to organize any kind of Events and Conferences.

Madeira, which is the name of the island and the archipelago that also contains the island of Porto Santo, was first called the Pearl of the Atlantic a long time ago. Madeira is, in actual fact, a rare gem, an exceptional destination, a place mentioned by travellers from all over the world. The hotels of supreme grandeur, the contagious night-life, and the outstanding cuisine are some of the plus points that make visitors want to visit the archipelago and return time and again. Funchal, the archipelago’s capital, is a city emanating a perfume of leisure time and pure fun – dancing and joking at carnival time, or watching the completely unique fireworks display that forms part of Madeira’s New Year’s Eve celebrations every year.

Each island is certain to be a revelation. The Azores are a living example, in the purest form, of what we would imagine paradise to be like, between the sun and the mist, and the green land and the blue of the sea. The people of the Azores have a very special way of welcoming guests, of keeping their history alive, of expressing their culture, of valorising and promoting the potential of their numerous destination attributes.
