Now that we have seen the year 2016 start, we greet with open arms all the challenges and exciting experiences it promises to bring with it.
One of the segments we plan to reinforce in our company is the continuous development and education of our employees.
Starting Jan 11th, three of our colleagues will participate at The Special Event in Orlando, Florida, which is a 4-day multi-seminar event for MICE professionals. In this event, we expect to update and enhance our knowledge through its offer of over 100 different seminars, and we want to discover new suppliers and products of the Incentives and Events segment of our business, being USA one of the most developed service providers in the world. If any of you is around, we would love to meet you personally, please just drop me an email.
Continuing to support the personal and professional growth, our company is co-sponsoring intensive French classes to one of our junior project managers, as we see the development of our French speaking market and we only have one true French speaking colleague (my knowledge is basically the sentence “Je t’aime” and it does not count as language skill!).
Another big challenge this year is to open our Berlin office, which is planned for February 2016. We are getting the office ready and our two colleagues responsible for the region are looking forward to serving you onsite.
The role of SITE Germany President has been assigned to our Managing Director Marina Parra and she has declared it a company issue! We look forward to getting involved in all the SITE projects and will hold different activities for SITE members and friends. We will keep you posted on these activities once they have been set.
Last but not least, this year we will be celebrating our 60th anniversary! Being the first DMC established in Germany is a great honor and we will celebrate it with different activities throughout the year. Stay tuned for more details.
We are really excited to start this year that comes full of positive events and we already promise you to continue taking care of your programs with the characteristic passion and energy that has proven to be the secret of our success!
Have a happy new year….and keep in touch!
