GO365 Travel organized a networking trip to Europe for 26 travel agents of various cultural backgrounds from four markets: Thailand, Vietnam, Indonesia, and Myanmar. The excursion covered three different countries and spanned a period of 8 days, 7 nights during 21-28 November 2016. The trip covered a number of landmark destinations in Italy (San Gimignano, Greve in Chianti, Lucca, Cinque Terre, Genoa) before leading to Switzerland (Bellinzona, Zermatt, Gornergrat, Montreux, Gruyeres, Lausanne) and ultimately ending up in France (Lyon, Reims, Paris.)
The purpose of this European journey was to not only reveal some of the continent’s “classic” destinations and to provide the clients with first-hand experience on the destinations they’re promoting, but to encourage and facilitate networking within the different regional teams. With meals, accommodation, transportation, daily activities, and local experts perfectly arranged in advance, our clients were able to sit back, relax, and enjoy an entirely smooth trip. The personal outcome: wonderful, lasting memories; the professional outcome: strengthened relationships and a wider network to operate in upon returning to Southeast Asia.
After receiving in-depth feedback from the returned clients, we are proud to say that the “Beyond Classic” experience was a complete success. With unforgettable experiences encountered and solid new relationships established, we trust that this networking trip will continue to pay off for our clients in the upcoming months and years.
Special Thanks to Studiosus, Switzerland Convention & Incentive Bureau, Ticino, Zermatt, VAUD, Swiss Travel System and La Vallee Village Outlet for supporting the trip.
