MCE South Europe 2016 Wrapup

mce-South Europe

This week MCE South Europe 2016 took place in Rome. The boutique one-stop-shop event was brought to life to showcase South Europe as a fabulous MICE destination. The rich variety of South European MICE Solution Providers came to the Italian capital to represent their destinations and build reliable business relationships with leading event planners keen on finding new business partnerships.

This year the event was hosted by the Sheraton Roma Hotel & Conference Center, one of the key conference venue hotels in Rome. After the welcome reception in that hotel, the evening progressed with a true networking dinner with true Roman delights at the Apicio by Eataly restaurant at Starhotels Metropole.

After a fruitful day of pre-scheduled and matchmade meetings on Monday 14 November, interesting keynotes addressed by the always engaging Jonathan Bradshaw from the Meetology Lab, the evening progressed to event partner Radisson Blu es Roma, where all participants were offered a fabulous evening. With a welcome reception, a fantastic dinner, a DJ that got the crowd swinging away, the super moon visible from the 7th floor terrace the day was a complete success.

Igor Bufardeci, Director of Sales of the Radisson Blu es. Roma stated: ’Thank you for the great cooperation and partnership and also for the great organization of the event. I have already attended many others forums and workshops, but the quality of Europe Congress events is much higher.

The second day of the event brought yet more one-to-one meetings, price winning presentation sessions and a formal closing of the very high value for money and time event. The closing session also brought words of thanks to Ms. Paola Rossi from Italian Glamorous Services and Mr. Pedro Marugan from Incoming Italy DMC, for providing high quality transfers and tours during the forum.

In such B2B event it is always essential to have the right mix of participants, the right thoughtful event program and bringing decision makers together. The feedback from the participants about the forum was superb. ‘I am very glad for the opportunity to participate in the event, it was a pleasure to meet and to get to know so well a variety of MICE suppliers, services and products. It is always a true pleasure to attend events like this where everything is organized professionally and things are done efficiently.’ Said Mariana Møller from Nykredit in Denmark.

When asking Mr. Alain Pallas, Managing Director of Europe Congress, organizer of MCE South Europe about the result of the event, he mentioned: ‘Our job is about bringing MICE providers in touch with a continuous stream of new high business potential, by bringing carefully selected event planners at our events. By focussing on a region from which originate providers and through offering a various event program we can reach business synergy during the event. Mixing that with a highly dedicated team offering flawless and personalized services onsite, we reach the overall event success for our participants that we seek. We thank all for their participation and involvement into MCE South Europe and are looking forward to deliver more fantastic experiences in 2017!’
