Take your next incentive trip in Bella Italia and see the country at its most beautiful. Our MICE professionals give you the heads-up on Naples, Amalfi, Positano and much more.

Naples, capital of Campania

Without a doubt, Naples is one of Italy’s most captivating and unmissable cities. Bustling and in many ways chaotic, but loveable nonetheless, we recommend exploring subterranean Naples with a visit to the Tunnel Borbonico or Bourbon Tunnel. Or you can put your cooking skills to the test in a pizza-making competition at one of the city’s traditional pizzerias.

The unique Amalfi coast

The best way to discover the most beautiful strip on the coast, between Sorrento and Ravello, is to hop on a Vespa or take a vintage Fiat Cinquecento – all “molto italiano”! There are plenty of wonderful hotels and restaurants along the Amalfi coast waiting to cast a spell over guests.

An evening on Capri
Spend at least one night on Capri in one of the classy five-star hotels and get a real flavour of the island’s unique flair after the day-trippers have left for home. The most stylish way to travel to Capri is by helicopter or on a private rental yacht. To explore the island, take a cable car or “Capritaxi”, or jump on a boat and head to the peaceful bays with their beautiful azure waters.

Discover Pompeii

Discover Pompeii’s historic sites at your own speed or climb the (still) dormant Mount Vesuvius by renting a special Ferrovia Circumvesuviana train. Pompeii’s stunning archaeological excavations can also provide a unique historical backdrop for a gala dinner.

Welcome to the greatest playground in Austria – the Red Bull Ring in Spielberg.

Want to give your next incentive trip a competitive edge? Are you looking for a destination that is quick and easy to get to and offers no end of fun and excitement for teambuilding activities – without blowing your budget? The Spielberg region – home to the famous Red Bull Ring – ticks all the boxes.

Action-packed experiences

On non-race days you can set the adrenaline coursing through your veins out on the Red Bull Ring track in various vehicles – either by taking to the wheel yourself or as a passenger. You can also put your skills as a driver to the test at the Driving Center where you will learn all about vehicle control and finding that all-important perfect line. Professional instructors are on hand to provide support and guidance on all racing activities. Visitors also have the chance to try their hand at off-roading.

Red Bull Ring Spielberg

Experience authentic Styrian hospitality and cuisine

The exclusive setting for your event is provided by nearby first-class accommodations such as Schloss Gabelhofen, the art nouveau Steirerschlössl villa or the G’Schlössl Murtal with its fantastic spa facilities. Culinary flights of fancy are on the menu at various locations including Landhotel Schönberghof with its amazing views out over the entire Red Bull Ring. And if your team are in the market for something slightly more rustic, then you need look no further than the Kühbreinhof. This utterly charming option elevates the famous Styrian apple to new heights in amazing new varieties of must cider, combined with delicious cold cuts.

No matter what the time of year, the door to the Spielberg region is always open for your next event. Ask our MICE professionals about our bespoke packages!

MICE tip: host your meetings where other people spend their holidays – at KUHOTEL by Rilano in Waidring in the mountains of Tyrol.

Enjoy a packed programme of incentives and events surrounded by the majestic Kitzbühel Alps – e-fat bike tours, the ski slopes, cross-country ski runs and biathlon routes are all right on your doorstep. KUHOTEL by Rilano’s location in the Tyrolean mountains makes it an especially attractive prospect for corporate events, training courses and employee incentives. Uninterrupted views of the breathtaking Alpine panoramas and the crisp mountain air are a treat for body and soul – the perfect starting point for effective training sessions and creative meetings that hit the spot.

Ski, Meet & Spa

Our tip: bring the evening to a laid back conclusion with a wine tasting session at the KUHEURIGEN or the KUBAR.

Could this be the location for your 2019 Christmas party? Our MICE professionals have all the details!

Are you looking to offer your participants that little bit more action and fun, while giving them the opportunity to experience some of nature’s most impressive sights? Then Iceland, on the edge of the Arctic circle, is the perfect destination!

But what exactly do we mean by action and fun?

  • Rafting tours on the icy waters of a glacial river
  • Ice climbing on a glacier
  • Snowmobile trips through the snow covered mountains
  • Quadbike tours on the long dark sandy beach at Reynisfjara.

Wonderful picnic lunches in the great outdoors and a relaxing dip in the thermal waters of the Blue Lagoon add to the magic of the experience.

Close to nature

Another unforgettable option is a day out on the high seas spent whale watching. With any luck, your boat will soon be surrounded by various different species of whales native to these waters. The island’s other natural highlights – including its famous geysers and stunning waterfalls – are also well worth a visit.

The incredible Aurora Borealis

If you plan your trip between late autumn and early spring, there’s a good chance that you will see the unique Northern Lights ‑ the Aurora Borealis – in all their glory. Iceland, island of contrasts and extremes, is the perfect destination where one experience follows the next.

Whether it’s Saint-Tropez, Nice, Cannes or Monaco, the appeal of the Côte d’Azur is plain to see for incentive trips, thanks to its Mediterranean location and excellent attractions.

The Côte d’Azur has always been a magnet for tourists from all over the world. But these days the region also has plenty to its credit for organisers of incentive trips, too. The first major attraction comes right after arrival when you treat your guests to a helicopter transfer. The region has something for everyone: from art and culture, to great food, active pursuits and simply enjoying nature.

Our tips for you:

  • A bespoke, themed tour of the French Riviera in classic cars. Experience the essence of French savoir vivre with a stop at the mediaeval hilltop village of Saint Paul de Vence.
  • Whatever route you go down, your trip has to include a day on the water: from zipping along the coastline in a speed boat to a laid back cruise aboard a luxury catamaran or even a sailing regatta to boost team spirit and bring out your guests’ competitive side. There’s no end of options.
  • Or maybe your group is looking for something a bit more action-packed? A buggy tour on the beach, canyoning at Pont-du-Loup or a mountain bike tour at Cap d’Antibes deliver fun and action in equal measure.

The trip is made all the more special by fantastic hotel options across all categories and restaurants to suit every budget – from cosy bistros to world-class gourmet hotspots. You will be spoilt for choice!

The Spanish capital Madrid has long been in the shadow of the Catalonian city of Barcelona when it comes to incentive trips.

Unfairly so, as the nation’s largest metropolitan area has come on in leaps and bounds over the past few years.

This catch-up process is now fully reflected in the capital’s impressively broad-based tourist infrastructure. Visitors to Madrid are spoiled for choice thanks to a wide range of four and five star hotels, as well as an outstanding choice of restaurants. And the various event and meeting locations in the city are also very well placed to cater to groups of all sizes. Visitors to Madrid can also dip their toes in the capital’s impressive cultural life, with the Prado-Museum and the Museum Reina Sofia among its outstanding attractions. The bustling old city has no end of shopping opportunities for visitors to enjoy. One very special way to explore the city is an entertaining tour in a vintage Seat 600. And if you want to go the extra mile, you can stop off to taste local specialities along the way for an even more unforgettable experience. Madrid is also home to one of the world’s most famous football clubs, Real Madrid. The club’s home, the legendary Estadio Santiago Bernabéu stadium, has a number of amazing incentive ideas up its sleeve: options range from a penalty shootout with the club goalkeeper to a gala dinner on the hallowed turf inside the stadium. Expeditions in the local region – including trips to Toledo where a marzipan workshop awaits – are just some of the other options the area has to offer.

Therme Laa – Hotel & Silent Spa in the Weinviertel region turns any meeting into a pleasure.

Only an hour from Vienna, the VAMED Vitality World resort of Therme Laa – Hotel & Silent Spa is set in the heart of the idyllic Weinviertel region. Its spacious seminar centre is fully self-contained and can accommodate up to 250 participants. Floor to ceiling windows and direct access to the garden create the ideal setting for productive gatherings and creative brainstorming sessions. Spaces flooded with natural light and quiet rooms are the perfect setting for participants to share ideas and work without any of the usual interruptions.

A full range of experiences that will live long in the memory can also be booked, including

  • A hemp walk through the village of Hanfthal
  • A one-of-a-kind cellar lane tour
  • Hops and malt tasting at the Hubertus brewery in Laa
  • A memorable journey on the first pedal car railway in Lower Austria
  • Or an authentic tour of the medieval town of Laa.

Excellent regional cuisine and the spa area including the hotel’s own private spa zone are among the additional extras that make staying at the resort such a pleasant experience.

Discover London for your next incentive trip. Our MICE team has just returned from a field test!

Right now the eyes of the world are on London as the government at the Palace of Westminster – like the Verkehrsbüro MICE Services team – carries on marching to a different tune!

Reason enough to consider this truly unique mega city as your next incentive destination. While some European capitals are a little light on options for incentives, the UK’s largest city offers a captivating mix of activities for adrenaline junkies, incredible cultural experiences and an impressive array of hotels, restaurants and bars.

Tips for your social events

  • Helicopter tour along the Thames with views of the city’s breathtaking skyline and some of its most famous landmarks
  • Anyone prepared to put in the physical effort will be rewarded with stunning views of the capital’s rooftops stretching into the distance when they reach the top of the O2 Arena. Afterwards, a high speed rib charter will take participants back to the heart of the city along the Thames – just like James Bond.

And at night?

London has a seemingly endless choice of unusual locations for visitors to enjoy, covering everything from cocktail receptions to gala dinners. Tower Bridge, the cloisters at Westminster Abbey or the beautiful Queens House palace in Greenwich are just some of our top recommendations. Or maybe your groups would prefer to finish up with a piece of historic pageantry? Come with us on an exclusive night-time tour of the Tower of London site and watch the Ceremony of the Keys, a ritual that has been performed unchanged, every day for centuries.

The latest hotel operated by VAMED Vitality World has been treating its seminar guests to a unique blend of relaxation, sport and wellness in the gently rolling hills of eastern Styria.

Filled with natural light, the 250m2 seminar area offers an innovative and quiet working environment.
