28 February - 1 March 2016


The Iberian MICE Forums team would like to say a very warm THANK YOU to all buyers and suppliers for trusting us and for attending the XII Iberian MICE Forum Edition - Costa Blanca & Alicante! We would also like to express our most sincere gratitude to the Costa Blanca Tourism Board, to both Convention Bureaux, Alicante and Elche who showed some of the hosted buyers during the Pretour some secrets from their cities and of course to the Meliá Villaitana, as well as the DMCs our special program partners during the event: MediMICE, SIS Tours & event-one DMC. Without their generosity and support this event would not have been possible.
We hope these networking days were inspiring and will encourage you to do business in any of the amazing destinations in Spain and Portugal very soon!
Ana & Andrés

Dear Ana, Nicole and Andrés, thank you very much for running such a professional event, your care was charming and gracious and your organisation was superb. It was a very productive experience. I met so many new contacts and I enjoyed the afternoon activities - it gave a chance to see and experience more of the Costa Blanca. Please give my regards also to your team, partners, suppliers and sponsors. I look forward to seeing you again in the near future – “Auf Wiedersehen” Best regards from Austria

Hola Andres/Ana/Begonya y toda equipo, de nuestra parte fue importante marcar presencia ya que los contactos que hicimos tienen potencial para se concretar en negocio. En primer lugar los buyers son de paises que tienen apetencia por Portugal por eso solo os poderia decir que el evento fue muy bueno. El Hotel eligido estava bien preparado, a excepcion de wi fi, y claro que al final estar en un ambiente agradable propicia mas descontracion y networking. En general los saludo por la organizacion y esperamos participar mas veces. Un fuerte abrazo a todos.

A quick note to thank you for the highly successful event in Alicante which was run professionally from the beginning to the end. The workshop format was particularly appreciated with meetings with many excellent contacts punctuated by the bell to help respect the schedule.

Sandra & Marisa Ruiz, SIS Tours - Spain

Dear Ana and the whole team, I wanted to thank you all so much for a fantastic event last week! It was wonderful to be included on the FAM trip to Alicante and Elche I found it so helpful to see all that the region has to offer. I thought the tapas and market tour with Arthur was fantastic, the restaurant we had lunch in was gorgeous and the location of the hotel was fabulous. I am already speaking to a client about coming over next year and including those elements in the programme. The forum was great and so well organised, all the people I met were really helpful and I have found some fantastic contacts. I am already speaking to people about two incentive groups for this year. I know that these events are a lot of effort to organise and you did such a great job. The quality of suppliers was excellent and just the kind of contacts I am looking for. Thank you all again and well done!
