Summer Bloggin’ – Events of 2016 (so far…)

Afternoon all

2016 has been a big news year; a Brexit vote and a new Prime Minister, a Brit living in space and our Welsh neighbours being better at football than us.  It’s been another busy year here also; running more successful client events, conferences, celebrations, incentives and team building as well as celebrating turning 3 years old in April.

Unlike Brexit and the England football team, W2 have remained in Europe working on some great European events, including a very busy and successful week running a medical conference in Alicante.  We’re also looking forward to heading out to Seville and returning to the Algarve in the next few weeks for incentive trips.

Just like at No. 10, we’ve also been ‘voted in’, winning some great new business pitches and becoming preferred supplier to some lovely new clients.  We have confirmed some great events with these new clients and plenty more to come.  Not forgetting our returning clients who are keeping us nice and busy running their successful event programmes.

Taking inspiration from Tim Peake, we’ve also been on ‘exploration missions’, hosted by our superb industry friends, exploring UK venues and cities and attending familiarisation visits to overseas destinations.  A few notable trips have been a fun weekend in Valencia (thanks to The DMC advantage, Hosmark & Maximice) and a few days of sunny paradise in Mauritius (thanks to Hosmark), and Dubai (thanks to Pearl), all  of which are fantastic destinations for corporate groups, both conferences and incentives, and we look forward to placing groups here soon.

And finally to the football where our Welsh & Icelandic friends proved that teamwork, togetherness and passion can take you to the next level.  We really enjoyed the stories of these teams, from the perspective of an event company who specialise in bringing people together through shared experiences, creating success for the overall team.  We’ll leave you to work out the corporate metaphor here…!

Have a good summer and enjoy the upcoming Olympics, and hopefully a quieter few months news-wise.

Go Team GB!  Wally. x
