“As soon as we regain mobility, many companies will be opting for a smaller format when offering their clients and partners incentive trips. Incoming travel agencies’ traditional role of providing attractive programmes tailored to the needs of each client will also need to include services to supervise and guarantee that all health and hygiene measures are complied with once in the destination.
Costa Brava Girona boasts a wide range of rural settings in which to enjoy nature and healthy activities, with the very attractive added bonus of spaces that can be booked in their entirety for private use.”
“In order to plan physical meetings with the utmost safety guaranteed, professional organisers will need access to large venues equipped to host complete events outdoors, from meetings and presentations to celebrations and meals, with all the necessary services to ensure the event runs smoothly.”
“The need to reduce attendee numbers at events is being compensated for by live-streaming, in order to reach wider audiences. In addition to requiring suitable staging, sound and lighting for both physical and virtual events, this hybrid formula calls for specific equipment and technology to ensure secure webcasting. For this reason, we have made the necessary investment.”
