Montpellier trip was severely disrupted, explains Michelle CheneryI was recently part of an organiser’s nightmare – when a natural disaster upsets all the careful, detailed arrangements made for an event.
Sud de France, the organisation set up to promote business tourism in the South of France, invited groups of MICE buyers and journalists to visit Montpellier in order to enjoy that beautiful part of France and to take part in a workshop, where we could meet local suppliers. ITCM was a member of a group from the UK.
We left from Gatwick Airport on EasyJet, the no-frills airline that has now recognised the opportunities in the MICE sector and has at last allowed groups to advance seat bookings on their flights.
