Arrival day and an evening drinks and canapé reception was organised, followed by a typical Catalan buffet
This started with a morning conference and introduction to the event by the senior managers, followed by some inter-active team building run by the Magnum Events Team on-site which incorporated the delegates exploring Barcelona with our Metro Mission event – a great way of combining a competitive team activity with visits to some of the most interesting parts of Barcelona. Each team was given a set of assignments, instructions, maps and tickets for the bus or Metro. With a deadline to meet all the teams raced around Barcelona completing their assignments with some funny results!
The evening was set aside for a leisurely boat trip along the Barcelona coastline followed by a Paella dinner in a waterside restaurant.
A few bleary eyes were spotted this morning as delegates made their way into the conference room to listen to a sales and motivational speaker that was booked for the morning conference session. After lunch delegates had free time before boarding a coach and heading off into the countryside to visit a wine factory and experience some wine tasting before heading off for a Gala Dinner. The Gala Dinner venue was chosen because of its location and grandeur, once an old casino it has been re-furbished but kept all its character. Guests were greeted with drinks and canapés as they listened to the Spanish guitar players playing in the courtyard before settling down to a gourmet dinner.
Back to Barcelona and the night was still young (for some) so it was off to experience the bars and clubs Barcelona has to offer.
Departure day and everyone departed agreeing that this had been a fantastic event and they would be re-visiting Barcelona again.
