ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS
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 XI Iberian MICE Forum Edition - Cascais & Lisbon! We would also like to express our most sincere gratitude to the Cascais Convention Bureau, to both host hotels, Cascais Miragem and Dom Pedro Palace, as well as to TAP Portugal, partner and Official Carier of the Forum. 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 Portugal and Spain very soon!
Ana & Andrés

It was a real pleasure to be part of the first Iberian Mice Forum in Portugal – Cascais and Lisbon. Despite the great fun we had during the event (specially the James Bond Casino party …I think I find out that I have a flair for casino game J) the most important was the quality of the accounts/ buyers! Congratulations for being so successful in inviting them! I sincerely believe that our meetings allowed them to identify multiple "events" possibilities in these two destinations for their next transactions in Spain and Portugal. Thanks again!
Deolinda Araújo, Hilton Spain & Portugal

Roberto Pato, ACCOR Hotels, Meetings & Events

I would like to thank you for a fantastic organization of the forum in Cascais and in Lisbon. Everything went so well and we made many interesting contacts that will help future business. As already said, the size of the event was just perfect. Congratulation and again thank you very much. Hasta luego!
Catherine M., France

Dear Ana & Andres, just to say a big thank you to both yourselves and your team for doing such an excellent job with organising such a professional event. The quality of the suppliers was really amazing, we will be using these in the near future knowing that there high standards are what our clients are looking for. In particular the Hotel Cascais Miragem was in its own category 10/10.
Barrie R., UK

I simply wanted to thank you for hosting me during a couple of inspiring days in Lisbon and Cascais. I got a lot of input and met nice and inspiring people, so I am very happy with the outcome of the event. Let’s see if any of the relations will end with concrete business opportunities – I truly hope so. Once again thank you and I hope to participate another time in the near future (I have my mind set on Oporto JJ). Please pass on my regards to any of your team-members I might have forgotten to include in this email.

Dear all, thank you very much for this great opportunity of joining your event Iberian Mice Forum 2015. It was a pleasure meeting you and your friendly team. As we, event organizers know that this all is about much details and a hard work, even in case of rain, you managed very well and matched the demands. At least mine… The locations and hotels, even the hudge Catamaran that you have shown us were very special, the winery in Colares is still the best location around here to present local wine and Portuguese food, the Pateo Alfacinha yesterday in Lisbon was absolutely amazing and will be on our list as well. The next forum in Algarve Luxury Edition will be very interesting for us, so let’s keep updated.

Felicidades a ti Andrés, a Ana y a todo el equipo por el estupendo trabajo. A pesar de la lluvia (me dio mucha pena de la gente de Portugal) creo que el evento lució y quedé muy contenta con la calidad de los compradores. Mi intención es proponer la asistencia al Fórum de Alicante…
Amanda de Armas, Tenerife Convention Bureau

Ana & Andres and their team did a fantastic job in organising a great and very enjoyable Forum. The weather did NOT spoil it at all, it only highlighted the warm hospitality and generosity of our hosts and sponsors. It was great to see some familiar faces and great to meet new ones!

Cynthia H., UK

A big thank you to the team, Ana, Andres, Nicole who organised this Forum and brought us all together. In this day and age Forums are a great way to meet many suppliers under one roof, we are all busy and appreciate the efficiency of these buyer/suppliers get-togethers. It was a pleasure meeting you all and I hope to see you all again soon!
Anna J., UK

Hola Equipo de Iberian Mice Forums, disculpad que no os haya escrito después del Forum, pero quería daros las gracias por la organización y transmitir nuestra satisfacción por la organización y la calidad de los buyers y los contactos que pudimos hacer durante las actividades de Networking. Del fórum hemos recibido 2 leads uno in situ y otro a posteriori que espero se puedan confirmar. Os mantendré informados y quedaremos para celebrarlo si se confirman. Solo añadiría una crítica constructiva para mejorar en siguientes forums y es que no todos las cenas/almuerzos sean buffet, creo que ofreciendo menus servidos se puede mostrar mejor nuestra gastronomía y es menos pesado para los clientes.
Ana Hicar, Hilton Sa Torre Mallorca - Spain

Dear Nicole, Ana & Andres, many thanks again for the invitation and organization to your Iberian Forum – it was a pleasure to meet you all in Lisbon. Hope to see you again next time.
Sabine H., Germany

Dear Andres, Ana and Nicole, thank you so much for everything!!! It was really fantastic! The pre-tour, the destination, the Forum, the contacts I have made. I wish you all the best, and until next time!!

Liebe Ana & lieber Andres, habt noch einmal ganz herzlichen Dank für die (kurzfristige) Möglichkeit bei Eurem schönen Iberian MICE Forum in Lissabon mit dabei zu sein! Es war ein grossartiger Event mit tollen Ausstellern und netten Kollegen, bei dem ich viele neue Kontakte geknüpft habe sowie Bestehende vertiefen konnte. So macht das Arbeiten einfach Spass, noch dazu in so einer traumhaften Destination mit Blick auf das Meer. Bitte richtet auch Eurem Team meinen Dank für die professionelle Organisation im Vorfeld sowie die perfekte Betreuung vor Ort aus. Sehr gerne wäre ich nächstes Jahr bei Eurem Luxury-Forum an der Algarve sowie in Porto wieder mit von der Partie… Sonnige Grüsse aus Bayern,
Eure Andrea S., Germany

I would just like to say I fully concur with the comments of Anna & others. An excellent event hosted in great surroundings amongst lovely, friendly people. Many thanks to all concerned
