NEWSFLASH August 2017

Dear Reader!

Hopefully you are spending a beautiful summer – or winter – depending on your region on the planet. In this edition of NEWSFLASH, it’s my pleasure to introduce what is happening at my doorsteps – the conference centre in construction in the city of Metz in the beautiful Departement de la Moselle in France. Metz Congres Robert Schuman will open its doors on September 1, 2018 and I went to see the construction for you! I warmly recommend it to you as it’s really hard to find a brand-new conference centre straight in the historic centre of a town and next to the TGV station! Please see the article. We will continue to introduce our beautiful homeland to you during the next months in both – NEWSFLASH and MICE:destination. But we also look beyond our region.

Hosted Buyer Events

MITM Americas & Cultourfair will take place from 14 to 17 November in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic and we’re looking to World MICE Day in Qingdao, China. Have you already applied to the hosted buyer programme? And did you apply for its’ award programme? Please see the details in the related articles!

Conference Centers 

In the Czech Republic Prague Convention Centre has received a makeover of its technical infrastructure – a great success not only for the centre, but also for the environment! 
In Australia, Cairns Convention Centre is waiting for its major renovation project to start in April 2018.

The second part of ‘Future Meetings Space’ project from German Convention Bureau will be sponsored by PCMA – and PCMA has also announced Pittsburgh and San Francisco as Destinations for Convening Leaders in 2019 and 2020.

The Ritz-Carlton goes to Sea – with three 149-suite vessels for up to 298 persons scheduled to sail from the fourth quarter of 2019 on. And the vessels are available for private charter.

Did you see the last Air Travellers' Traffic Barometer?

Long haul arrivals are on the rise in Europe. Lastly, in the Americas ibtm america and ibtm latin america are announced to merge and continue in the format and at the location of ibtm latin america – in Mexico City.

As always, you’re invited to share this edition of NEWSFLASH with your colleagues.
