Marrakech – Morocco’s red city. A highly attractive destination for incentive trips and meetings.

This city has provide inspiration for countless creatives, including Yves Saint Laurent. The medina is a bastion of traditional Moroccan culture. Djemaa El-Fna, the central square and marketplace, bursts into life every evening. Riads with verdant courtyards and beautiful rooftop terraces are perfect for whiling away the hours. And the city’s hammam bathhouses are special locations for getting away from it all.

The Atlas mountains are just a short distance away. This beautiful part of the world offers numerous options for action-packed incentive experiences: like Terre d’Amanar, an area with dizzying rope parkour, flying fox and various other attractions perfect for a sporty teambuilding session.

More and more international hotel chains are opening up branches in Marrakech, adding to the city’s modern, contemporary meetings infrastructure, which is every bit as good as that of its European counterparts.

Discover Tallinn!

Estonia’s fairytale capital offers a fantastic blend of medieval charm and modern sensibilities. Conveniently, a majority of the hotels are clustered in the city centre close to the popular sights and meeting places. The city is best known for its stunning Old Town, a centuries-old neighbourhood of cobblestone lanes, gabled houses, Gothic churches and charming squares, all surrounded by a system of sturdy defensive walls and towers. The area, which is protected as a UNESCO World Heritage site, is the spiritual heart of the city as well as the hub of its dining and nightlife scene. There are, quite simply, very few cities in the world that can rival Tallinn for its well-preserved medieval buildings and timeless atmosphere.

Unforgettable MICE locations.

Tallinn is guaranteed to wow your guests with unforgettable new experiences. Imagine hosting your gala dinner or social event in the opulent Kadriorg Palace, built in 1718 for the Russian emperor. Or alongside the hull of the 1930s-era Lembit submarine at the Tallinn Seaplane Harbour. Or under the vaulted arches of the medieval House of the Brotherhood of Black Heads guild hall. Other choices include the city’s 600-year-old Town Hall, a century-old power plant revamped as the Tallinn Creative Hub.

Perfect size.

In fact, its city centre is so compact that most hotels, venues, restaurants and sights are within easy walking distance of one another. Instead of hassling with buses, taxis or transfers to get from A to B, you’ll most likely be taking a quick – and economical – stroll. A taxi ride from Tallinn’s airport to the city centre takes a mere 10 minutes, so in most cases organisers don’t even have to bother with transfers. Tallinn offers a great mix of 3- to 5-star conference hotels with quality/price ratio that’s far better than the European average, with chains like Radisson Blue, Swisshotel or Sokos.

The newly opened Motel One Amsterdam-Waterlooplein revolves around the themes of flea markets, upcycling and old masters.

In its second hotel in Amsterdam, Motel One has gone for an extraordinary and luxurious interpretation of the “flea market” theme, with old windows, doors, cabinets and wooden planks as wall cladding, a chandelier made of flea market lamps and a workbench made of various materials with integrated table lamps. The inspiration came from the famous flea market on the historic Waterlooplein Square, which the hotel is also named after. The Dutch artist Piet Hein Eek skillfully combines the themes. The hotel is in a prime city location.
