The Brief

A global investment bank wished to bring together its senior staff from offices around the world for a full winter conference, plus incorporate some skiing into the programme.

  • 200 delegates
  • 3 nights
  • Destination to be a major hub for delegates from worldwide plus short transfer time
  • Conference set-up in Cabaret style and a large number of syndicate rooms required
  • A selection of local restaurants for a dine around
  • Skiing for 2 x half days

The Solution

Interlaken proved to be the best solution as it is accessible to Geneva, Zurich and Bern airports, plus it has some first class hotels with large conference space and a high number of bedrooms to accommodate the delegates in single occupancy.

Highlights & Challenges

  • Sourcing accommodation within 2 hotels and providing transport between them
  • Arranging many individual transfers from different airports
  • Split delegates into groups prior to travelling to resort and then equip them for skiing in a very short time period
  • Arrange and manage a ski race
  • As there were back to back groups, there was the logistical challenge of having transfers arriving and departing at the same time


‘I just wanted to drop you a note to express my appreciation for the spectacular weekend my colleagues and I have just enjoyed courtesy of your company’s organization and expertise.

The execution of the agreed agenda was highly impressive, with nothing in the organization left to chance. In keeping with the Swiss surroundings everything went perfectly to clockwork! With regard to the organization of the skiing activities, the speed with which you were able to kit out the large number of skiers and send them on their way on the Saturday morning was a source of amazement to me. Equally, your choice of restaurants and quality of the dining experience was impeccable’.
