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
Martina

NEWSFLASH December 2017

Dear Reader!

I hope you have had a successful and productive year 2017 and you are enjoying the beautiful time of the holiday season ahead with all its delights!

And I wish to express my solidarity with all – inside and outside the meetings industry, who have been hit by the natural (or other) catastrophes that we have seen during the year. My compassion and thoughts are in this season with all those who have been hit hard – by the hurricanes like Irma and Maria, by the earthquakes in Mexico, or the flooding in Bangladesh. We saw far too many such catastrophes and for many, these are not yet overcome! In Puerto Rico, many still don’t have electricity and water – not to talk about repair of damaged homes and suspended jobs because the hurricanes have hit businesses and infrastructure so badly.

I know, I can’t change the world, but we at MICE Media Marketing wish to hold up a little candle of hope. We decided to support the partners, employers – in our industry, the meetings industry - who suffered substantial damage after one of the many natural catastrophes we saw. We believe, it is important that all those service providers and hotels remain visible to the international buyer community, so business may be placed for the time that services are re-established, and hotels may open their doors again and staff will find their jobs and income again. We will support these partners with a market presence programme until the end of June 2018. Then we will review the situation.

Ultimately, we hope you will feel confident enough to join us and place future business with those in need. Wouldn’t the festive season feel a lot better if you did?

We wish you all a happy, healthy and prosperous holiday season and all the success for 2018.

Best regards

Martina
