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
