Dear Reader!

This month, it’s a great pleasure to introduce you to MICE:direct. MICE:direct is our digital hotel/conference center/DMC/convention bureau directory for the MICE / Meetings industry.

We know there are many directories available. However, MICE:direct will not only further enhance our editorial coverage, but when we feature a destination in NEWSFLASH or MICE:destination, we will include a direct link to this destination's suppliers on MICE:direct, if it is listed at the time of publication.

If our feature excites your interest in a destination, finding its suitable partners will be just one click away! This link will always lead to the partners currently listed, and therefore over time you will find more partners when coming back to a link. These links will be also included in the news coverages on our website.

So, in this issue we launch MICE:direct, and hope you will find and use it often!

Best regards,
Martina

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.

Sincerely yours
Martina
