Oslo December 2016

18 hours of darkness presents a different type of opportunity for a conference organizer at this time of year, and being famous for its Nobel Peace Prize presentations, it is busy. The famous place offers great winter activities only half an hour from the city center. If you want your group to get away from it all, and experience the chill of the Northern Hemisphere, GSC can help you.

Looking Ahead

We have booked meetings this year and going forwards to 2019 in :-

Berlin, Abu Dhabi, Paris, Barcelona, Prague, Dublin, Ottawa, Rio, UK, Holland, Hungary, Malaysia, Tokyo, South Korea, and have looked at, and are looking into client requests for meetings in India, Singapore, the USA, and different destinations around Europe.

Outlook

Safety, ease of access, and high standards, with prices that reflect quality of service – these are key selling points.

We understand how clients and venues work, and giving all round feedback is so important to GSC. Emphasis on listening and learning helps with improvement and success.

Trust in electronic communication is waning. Looking forwards, meeting on a one to one basis has never been more important than now, and it quickens the pace of getting the job done efficiently and methodically, because meeting one another face to face leaves no room for misunderstanding.

GSC is working towards it’s 31st year helping industry with its important meetings and events.

Dublin

Having just spent some time in this wonderful city we can confidently recommend a wide range of venues to suit your budget and numbers – you can have a go at Gaelic Games or Irish dancing once your conference has ended. We have excellent contacts in the city to make sure you experience real Irish Hospitality!

 

Cornwall – Headland Hotel 4*

Newquay – Grade 2 listed building – £25m in investment – over looking the famous Fistral Beach – For now it is just one of those Hotels that resembles great hospitality of the past where time almost stands still, and yet you can get everything you want now. For any company that wants to blow wind through its hair, get the cobwebs out of the cupboard, and have the time to think up new strategies, this certainly is a place for it, and it won’t cost an arm and a leg. Ask us for more details.

Where do we go with this budget?

Ask us. It is a question we are asked a lot, and with our experience it is one we like answering. Imagine if you wanted an option to have your meeting held in a luxury tent in a remote spot, or on a luxury yacht? We would ask you for your preferred location, style, and content, and have it arranged quickly to suit you, with just a few additional questions to complete the picture, to fulfill your desire to have satisfied delegates and guests. We like giving our clients “choice” with great results.
