EVENTÔIR got invited to a fam-trip to Mallorca. The workshop took place from the 23rd to the 25th of October. Many different event agencies based in Europe got invited to Mallorca for this workshop. We got to understand why Mallorca is a MICE destination with a great future. Hence, by hosting meetings with different suppliers, they found a unique and fun way to present them. Also, they demonstrate which activities can be done during the events. EVENTÔIR enjoyed their time at the event and got even more convinced that Mallorca has a great future when it comes to MICE, having seen many opportunities that our clients will certainly appreciate. Read here about one of our events organized in Mallorca.
We would like to present to you the enjoyable program of this fam-trip to Mallorca. First, we got to fly to Palma de Mallorca in the afternoon. We were picked up and brought to Fergus Style Tobago. This hotel is located in Palma Nova, which was the first purpose-built tourist destination on the island. Therefore, it has a lot to offer for tourists but also company trips to Mallorca.
In the evening, we were invited to have a welcome cocktail, during which the hosted buyers and partners, which were different suppliers in Mallorca, were able to network and get to know each other. A perfect way to start the workshop, as we got to make connections before the meetings started the day after. Furthermore, we got a tour of the hotel. The suites, restaurant, and sky bar were shown to us.
On the second day, we started with a delicious breakfast at the hotel. Afterward, we went to Finca Son Termes. Finca Son Termes is a beautiful event location to arrange meetings, weddings, and all sorts of events. They have multiple rooms to host dinners and parties as well. We have organized a part of our event in this location. Read more about it here.
After the introduction, the face-to-face meetings started. The meetings were arranged with different hotels, restaurants, event venues/locations, and destination management companies. During these meetings, we got to know the different suppliers that we did not know before. We added the suppliers to our database and got some new inspiration to organize events.
In between, we had a small coffee break during which we got a tour through the Finca. Some more meetings followed this great tour before it was time for the paella challenge activity. EVENTÔIR was part of the winning team, as we had made the best paella of all the teams. That was fun! We had been divided into six teams earlier, whereas each group had to make different sorts of paella, with meat, vegetarian or fish. Some got creative and even added special ingredients.
Electric- car excursion
After the paella challenge, the program announced that it was time for “the route of the foothills”. This was an excursion in electrical cars through the Serra de Tramuntana, a world heritage site by Unesco. We got to drive the cars ourselves, which was a very nice experience, and definitely, something that we offer and will recommend to our clients. From the Serra tramuntana, we were able to enjoy a nice view of the ocean.
In the evening, we were invited to UM Beach House. This is an event destination, a beach club, where we had a nice and tasty dinner. UM beach house is a very popular and new venue. During the day you can enjoy some drinks, but there is also the possibility to organize fun events. One of the best DJ’s of Mallorca was performing during our dinner. This was, once again, a great way to socialize with all the buyers and partners that were present during the trip.
The meetings on the last day took place in the hotel. Again, we had 2 sessions of meetings. The organization did a really good job and coordinated the whole event very good. After we were finished, we were invited to an appetizing finger food lunch outside on the terrace of the hotel. Sadly, the time had come to check out, before we went to Palma de Mallorca altogether.
Upon arrival in Palma we did an activity called “Palma sweet tour”. This is a special tour to get to know Palma in a distinctive way. The walking tour will offer something sweet to eat at every stop. Also, during the tour, there are assignments that have to be completed. We ended the tour at FOOD AND FRIENDS. This is a restaurant, but also a cooking school, or a place to celebrate your events, and a gourmet shop. Here we got to make our own ensaïmadas. An ensaïmada is a pastry product from Mallorca. Even though the recipe is not that difficult, it was still a challenge to get the dough to an ensaïmada. This was an entertaining workshop and the perfect way to end this fam-trip to Mallorca. From here we had a transfer to the airport.
In general, the fam-trip to Mallorca was a very nice and inspiring experience. We were able to make a lot of contacts and experienced different activities that we can offer to our clients in the future. EVENTÔIR has seen the possibilities that Mallorca has to offer, and we believe we definitely will be able to organize more events in this destination. Contact us now so we can talk about the possibilities for your company trip. We will be happy to plan an unforgettable program for you and your clients.
