In partnership with meetago, Verkehrsbüro MICE Services has designed a new online platform called VB2meet.

MICE bookers can use it to find the perfect location for their meeting or get-together in just a few clicks. The new tool searches for meeting facilities and rooms in more than 350,000 hotels and locations – from traditional to cutting edge. VB2meet is a transparent and user-friendly online platform that simplifies and unifies the entire process from booking to payment. You can contact the hotels directly and will receive a quote in no time at all. All services are invoiced by the selected provider. VB2meet is free to use, with access restricted to registered users.

This useful interactive tool makes event management even easier for Verkehrsbüro MICE Services customers and has the potential to deliver cost savings.

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!

Bespoke all the way: at Best Western Premier® and BW Premier Collection® hotels, your guests will experience unique meetings and unforgettable moments.

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.
