Dear Reader,

Recently, I traveled for you to South Africa; Cape Town, Johannesburg and the Province Limpopo – Polokwane and the Entabeni Safari Conservancy were our destinations. And I am delighted to recommend the destination to you! Please see our detailed coverage. If you consider the destination, I warmly recommend attending Meetings Africa taking place at Sandton Convention Centre, Sandton, Johannesburg to you! The event is extremely well organized and allows you to connect with all relevant partners – not only in South Africa, but in the southern region of the African continent.

Another trip brought me to the city of Prague, Czech Republic – one of my favourite cities. It’s a pleasure to share the experiences and our knowledge about Prague’s great venues and hotels with you! Prague is another hot recommendation for your events.

In:Review brings a trip report by Jens Hoffmann on his trip to Thailand, Ching Mai. Don’t miss “Routes in his Majesty’s Footsteps – Amazing Luxperience @Chiang Mai”!

We’re looking at IMEX America and I’ll travel to attend MITM Americas – taking place in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic from 15 to 17 November 2017.

And in this edition, we’re bringing a new report category to you: Check:In. Please find a review of flights between Frankfurt, Germany and South Africa with Emirates, connecting in Dubai.

Do you have feedback, recommendations or wishes – please contact me! As always, you are warmly invited to share MICE:destination with your colleagues.

Sincerely yours

NEWSFLASH March 2018

Dear Reader!

This month, we are already looking forward to Association Day at IMEX in Frankfurt and to the new research report on the rise of midsize cities in our industry which was commissioned by IMEX Group. Oh – and while being in Frankfurt, see the news of Messe Frankfurt and the progress of its extension – Hall 12 is scheduled to complete construction this autumn! Be sure to schedule meeting with their team at IMEX. 

Don’t miss the information about the Incredible Impacts Programme, developed by BestCities Global Alliance and ICCA!

And I am just back from Meetings Africa – please see our report on the show – and please see my report on the actual water situation in Cape Town. Yes, things are different compared to last year, but no drama at all! Of course, visitors to the city need to respect the situation, but there is absolutely no reason to avoid the city, so go for Cape Town – your business is needed! 

Melbourne Convention Bureau’s AIME 2018 was the last event managed by Reed Exhibitions. Please see the review and the outlook and dates for AIME 2019.
