Prague is once again honored with hosting MCE Central & Eastern Europe. After having paid tribute to many other Central & Eastern European destinations that offer quality MICE facilities and services, Prague was chosen to welcome the set of nearly 100 international event planners in February 2019. The high-quality boutique show that is organized for the 9th consecutive year is one of the various MICE forums in Europe Congress’ portfolio.
During this two-and-a-half-day forum, Europe Congress brings carefully selected event planners from all parts of the world, to meet with regional destinations and high profiled MICE providers from the Central & Eastern part of Europe. These MICE providers are large hotel chains like InterContinental, Kempinski, Marriott, NH and Hilton. Yet also more regional providers such as Danubius, Rixos, Lindner, Maritim, CPI and private hotel properties as Makedonia Palace, Bernardin Hotels and Le Hotels Group. DMC companies such as Liberty, Mondial and MICE in the City form another solid group of participants alike Convention Bureaus from for example Riga, Salzburg, Kitzbuhl and Bled.
Each participant will engage into 35 direct business encounters that have been match-made and pre-scheduled. Moreover, participants get increased possibilities to socialize, network and do business through the engaging event program with luncheons, receptions, dinners and parties, where the entire audience remains together for the full duration of the event. The hotel hosting this wonder of an event is one of Prague’s hospitality jewels, The InterContinental Hotel Prague. “It is a great pleasure for us to host such a high-quality forum and at the same time a unique opportunity to increase awareness of what our destination has to offer to the meeting industry professionals. We are looking forward to showcase our hospitality to the event organisers and we hope they’ll find an enormous benefit from attending,” says Robert Rudge, General Manager of InterContinental Prague.
The welcome dinner on Sunday 17 February, right after the welcome reception at the host hotel, will be held at Lobkowicz Palace, the only private owned part of the magnificent Prague Castle complex. Lobkowicz Event Management is handling the entire evening. The lavish dinner is part of the ingenious networking and business introductions scheme set up by Europe Congress. Vendula Krejčí, Director of Sales at Lobkowicz Events Management states: ‘’The Lobkowicz Palace is excited to host this prestigious event and welcome all participants to our elegant spaces. We hope that our history and heritage will provide an exceptional experience for everyone.”
Still few participation spots remain available, before Europe Congress will close registration and preparing their progressive B2B meeting scheduling, the value all participants are so keen on to grow their MICE business from.
