Travel agents and MICE companies treated to exclusive event showcase

Chapman Freeborn’s air charter team in Germany recently organised a familiarisation trip for a group of leading travel agents and MICE agency clients, with the aim of presenting exciting new ideas for future corporate events.

The two-day showcase hosted at Munich Airport and the town of Tegernsee was organised in collaboration with the Hotel Bachmair Weissach, Shangri-La Hotels and Resorts, event agency crossing mind, hotel representative PURE connections, and Emirates airline.

The 42 guests were firstly treated to lunch and drinks at Airbräu – a Bavarian restaurant with its own brewery and indoor beer garden located within Munich Airport – before heading to the General Aviation Terminal (GAT) to view a variety of private jets and a helicopter.

Chapman Freeborn’s Esther Brown gave an introduction to the benefits of private chartering and presented a range of aircraft types including an Embraer Phenom 100, a Cessna Citation Jet and a King Air turboprop, as well as an Agusta A109 twin-engine helicopter.

After a short break in the lounge of Munich Aviation Services, the participants were driven to the Hotel Bachmair Weissach, located on the shore of Tegernsee lake. Following a welcome in the hotel’s fireplace lounge, guests were able to enjoy an evening of entertainment and a three-course meal.

The following day’s program was opened with a formal tour of the hotel, which combines traditional Bavarian style with modern elegance – as well conference facilities and ballroom for events.

Guests then enjoyed informative presentations by PURE connections, Shangri -La Hotels and Resorts and Emirates, followed by some team participation events hosted at the hotel.

The two-day showcase concluded with a torchlight procession and murder mystery evening, held over another evening of fine cuisine and drinks.

Esther Braun, air charter specialist at Chapman Freeborn, commented on the successful familiarisation trip:

“I think we were able to present our travel agent and incentive clients with a unique variety of new event ideas and flight options. On behalf of all the partnering companies, I would like to thank the organisers and guests who helped to make the event such a great success.”
