On 20 June 2013, Montse Garcia and Aitor del Rio, members of PortAventura Business & Events, attended the “Summer Workshop by Partance”. This took place at the Hotel Pershing Hall, an iconic 18th century building situated in the heart of Paris. The event, organised by Partance, is part of a series of “workshops” that are held throughout the year and are intended solely for associates of the company.
The day, attended by a total of 180 people, was a resounding success. It included a presentation of products offered by the different European destinations specialising in holding corporate events. Among the French agencies present, of particular note were the representatives of Connect Factory, Havas, Ormes and Allegria.
On 3 and 4 April 2013 a trade fair was held in Paris, bringing together for the first time ever Meedex France and Meedex International in one single event where each still stuck to their own format. With the collaboration of Partance, the central theme was the MICE sector; business tourism and events management on an international level. Once again Meedex allowed organisers of seminars, conferences, congresses, incentives and events, to name but a few, to explore the most appropriate locations and the best suppliers to ensure the success of their next projects. The Carrousel du Louvre was the setting for Meedex 2013, occupying two of its rooms: Le Nôtre and Soufflot Room.
Montse García, Sales Development Manager de PortAventura B&E, and Franck Barbaras, Director Business & Events PortAventura Convention Centre, attended Meedex France; a trade fair targeted solely at French buyers seeking international destinations. For these reasons and in view of possible business opportunities, PortAventura Business & Events took part in the 2013 event, and was one of 300 exhibitors coming from 45 countries.
Franck Barbaras, PortAventura B&E Manager, attended last week in Paris the “St. Valentine’s Workshop” organised by Partance, representing our Convention Centre in France. It was a successful day attended by around 50 prestigious companies allowing for various presentations to leading companies within their respective sectors. Many of them were unaware of PortAventura Business & Events and, therefore, of all the services and offers available to clients. Consequently it was a satisfactory initial contact for possible future events.
