So far in 2016 we've seen a continuing trend for businesses booking corporate events in European destinations. Clients are showing more confidence in booking events overseas due to the unique experiences on offer, flight frequencies and value-for-money deals available. In a buoyant market the exchange rate is generally more favourable and clients are finding that travelling to European destinations can prove far more cost effective than going to London. Clients are also becoming more savvy with business strategies, and want options that let them get more international divisions to network more regularly.
Consider the experience of Valtech, a client that had previously only booked UK corporate events with Off Limits. This forward-thinking digital agency expressed an interest in creating a unique overseas teambuilding experience.
For the Barcelona event last summer 121 delegates from Valtec descended onto the resort of Catalonia. The event was fully curated by Off Limits, providing Valtech with an end-to-end solution that gave delegates a chance to experience the local environment through the destination-specific event. The package included flights, transfers, conference arrangements, catering and an evening beach party. The whole package provided the client with a unique team building event with Purnina Sen, Operations & HR Manager from Valtec commenting ‘The event was absolutely fantastic, all things went to plan right from the travel arrangements, transfers and all the activities. Offlimits will always be my first port of call and choice for every event'
As part of the Amsterdam package, 116 corporate delegates from Valtec descended onto the Supperclub in Amsterdam. The sophisticated venue incorporates a restaurant, gallery, bar, club with live music and provocative performances for a truly exclusive experience. As described by Purnina Sen from Valtec “We had an absolutely fantastic time…with 116 people it was no mean feat and from the minute I came to you with an enquiry, right up to the point we all flew back from the event on Sunday – it has been an absolute pleasure to work with Offlimits"
European destinations are becoming increasingly popular due to the huge amount of choice, affordability and unique experiences on offer. Off Limits can make planning easier and simpler, with each overseas event package tailored to suit the client's brief and audience.
