We would like to thank all sponsors and delegates for trusting us and joining the VII Edition of the a&a Iberian MICE Forum. It was fantastic getting to know Barcelona in a modern and also traditional way. The previous Famtrip organised by the Catalunya CB was also a good experience for those delegates who wanted to discover the south area from Barcelona like Sitges and the Costa Dorada. The unique experience in Masía Egara with the support of all our sponsors showed us how to organise a spectacular evening. You can see more in this link: https://vimeo.com/87095279. Thank you for all your kind remarks during the Forum and of course also for your positive critics, which makes us improve. We are pleased to know that new buyers had the chance discover Barcelona in a personaliezed way together with all the suppliers and of course with us. We are aware that some of you materialized business after the Forum, which is for us the greatest possible satisfaction. Thank you all and hope to see you soon in our next Forums!
Ana & Andrés


I wanted to say a massive thank you for organising a brilliant MICE forum in Barcelona. I have made so many good contacts and come away with lots of ideas which I can’t wait to share with my clients. Barcelona and the surrounding area offers so much to event organisers. The forum itinerary was very balanced offering lots of quality meeting time with some great suppliers whilst allowing the opportunity to socialise with the whole group through the activities and wonderful hospitality we were treated to. Huge thanks to both of you and Vanessa for looking after us so well. I will be recommending the forum to my colleagues and I can’t wait to join you on another destination showcase in the future.

Just want to thank you for letting me participate in this Forum. I had a really good time and meet some very nice people and business contacts for our future business in Barcelona. I loved the stay in Majestic and the welcome party at Claris ... Thank you for a well performed organization of this event. Hope to be able to participate in one of the others as well.

We have enjoyed 4 days full of intense sensations. The meetings have proved to be very interesting and appropriate to our business and what we were looking for. The organisation of both the fam trip and the meeting sessions was excellent and you did a great job. Thanks to both of you and all your partners and sponsors who have permitted this great experience.

I thank you and your colleagues for your work involved by the preparation and attendance of the Iberian MICE Forum. It was not only about learning interesting places and gaining usefull contacts or experiencing the hotels and enjoying the cities of Sitges, Tarragona and Barcelona, attractive accompanying programme, but on top of all meeting lovely people like you and pensatively chosen participants - both hosted buyers and suppliers. Wish you lots of successfull events, good luck and numberous reasons for keeping your warm smile, feeling and be happy!

Thank you so much for the great organization of Iberian MICE Forum in Barcelona. I have enjoyed it very much and I had some very interesting contacts with historic hotels/venues in Barcelona. This week I will try to complete all proposals and sending info. Hopefully it brings enough positive feedback to come to Barcelona again this summer for side inspections. If I may give you some feedback to improve the MICE Forums even better, I would suggest to introduce a system for making appointments in advance, either by the buyers, the suppliers or both. This way you get even better fitted meetings. Hopefully I can join on the Iberian MICE Forum in Madrid at the end of April. Thank you again and hope to see you soon again.

Ich möchte Euch nochmals ganz herzlich für das tolle Forum in Barcelona danken ! Es war eine perfekte Veranstaltung, super organisiert, absolutes VIP Treatment, tolle Kontakte und so viele neue Eindrücke, die mir nun helfen, Barcelona und die schönen Hotels viel leichter zu verkaufen. Ihr beide seid toll ! Danke, dass ich dabei sein durfte ! Und Danke vielmals Andrés, dass Du mir das Fosbury und den Strand nochmal gezeigt hast. Bis hoffentlich ein anderes Mal wieder.

Just a quick line to thank you both again for organising such a great workshop in Barcelona - lots of good contacts made and several new ideas to work on. The Claris was very good, as were the other host venues of course. It was also nice to get re-acquainted again with the city, particularly at close quarters, although my legs are still suffering a bit!
