I was in Rome and Umbria just before the holidays, meeting MICEport’s great DMC in Italy, Studio ITER. It was great to see Roberto and Lorella and to stay in Assisi.
The fascinating thing to me was, what a trip like this does for you personally and for our business. There is nothing like having a face to face meeting as myself, Lorella and Roberto had in Italy. We were able to get through so much information and create some great ideas and plans for 2014. Not only that but I was inspired by the amount of program possibilities for North American clients who may want to be based in Rome as well as having a completely different experience in Umbria (about an hour and a half away).
In the evening Lorella and Roberto opened up their home to myself and my Dad, who joined me in Italy for a great Father/Son bonding time – we hadn’t spent this much time together in years and it was wonderful. It was so nice to sit around the family table in Lorella and Roberto’s house with their beautiful children while enjoying an amazing traditional dinner that Lorella had prepared.
While sitting at the table, I said to myself – this is what we are lucky to do in our meeting and incentive business with our international partners – bring people together – learn different cultures – create unique experiences – surround ourselves with good people.
