Monte Carlo Update with Skye Marshall

We have all done so well in embracing digital connectivity and collaboration but to truly get under the skin of a destination, it takes real life travel.

Fellow Activater Skye Marshall has walked the talk and she has actually explored Monaco like few of us have in a long time, by saying ‘yes’ to a remarkable familiarisation trip to the principality.

Fellow Activater Skye Marshall has walked the talk and she has actually explored Monaco like few of us have in a long time, by saying ‘yes’ to a remarkable familiarisation trip to the principality.

We are sharing here an Excerpt from the Diary of a Professional Event Manager:

all in her own words because… it’s all about first-hand knowledge and that personal touch!

 

Day 1

  • Self-drive vintage cars from the airport, to the fabulous and recently renovated Le Domain du Mas de Pierre. I was fortunate enough to get behind the wheel of a Rolls Royce!
  • The evening was spent in Monaco. Where we visited the Hotel Café de Paris and spent the first half of our evening overlooking Casino Square from one of their beautifully appointed suites…. where lots of champagne was consumed!
  • Visited Monte Carlo Casino. Gambled. Didn’t win. Ahahah.
  • Drowned my sorrows at the Buddha Bar.
  • Overnight stay at Le Domaine du Mas De Pierre, I wish we had more time to explore the resort as it was truly sublime. Especially the Spa facilities.

 

Day 2

  • Discovery of the Monks wine at the Abbaye de Lérins. Boat transfer to Lérins Island (saw a dolphin on route), where we had a wine tasting in the vineyard.
  • Checked into Riviera Marriott Hotel La Porte de Monaco which has been recently renovated and is in the middle of la Croisette (the main promenade by the Mediterranean Sea, where the Cannes Film Festival is held). Enjoyed a French ‘gouter’, which is basically the equivalent to our afternoon tea.
  • Visited Hôtel Martinez by Hyatt and spent the evening in their presidential suite, watched the sunset from the terrace and listened to jazz! Super evening, food was fantastic and so was the company.

 

Day 3

 

French Riviera (a reminder if needed…):

  • 300 days of sun, Cannes city of congresses, incentives & Film Festival.
  • Nice International Airport (everything within 30 minutes drive) – international flight connections.
  • Balance between beaches and mountains.

 

Definitely a winning destination! Thank you all and James Dowson and the team at The DMC Advantage. Skye.

Why Event Services Aren’t a Commodity

Events are far from neurosurgery so what we take from this analogy is not the condensed pressure of responsibility towards one patient’s life but the responsibility the event organizer has towards the entire audience (sometimes numbered in thousands) to bring value, to inspire and to make their at...

Event Apps Help or Hindrance?

Apps are seen as the instant fix for those who want to “take the event into the 21st century” by digitalizing it. We agree, it’s pretty cool to allow technology to do some of the hard work. It helps with perception too. Not all brands are Apple and by simply having an “app” the event gets...
