A corporate away day has to be more than just a jolly. It generally means a substantial financial investment, and companies rightly want to feel that it’s money well spent, that they can achieve specific business objectives as a result of such an event. At MGN events we understand the importance of this, which is why one of our clients entrusted us to provide full event management for theirs.
The event was to involve 450 employees traveling from London, Edinburgh and Paris. Beaumont Estate in Old Windsor proved the ideal venue – easily accessible from London airports, modern and stylish with excellent facilities. Logistics are part of our everyday job, the greater challenge was to deliver an experience that went far beyond standard plenary sessions with break-out groups.
Likewise, it was crucial that we gained an in-depth understanding of our client, a travel company, and their desire to bring together employees who had never met each other, create a positive team atmosphere and communicate the company’s vision for the future following the acquisition of a Paris-based business.
