FamTrip for conference organisers from Scandinavia

On 11-14 June, the Czech Tourism and Czech Convention Bureau, in co-operation with the Moravian Convention Bureau and Prague Convention Bureau, organised a MICE FAM Trip for eight conference organisers from Sweden and Denmark. Apart from Prague, the FamTrip participants visited also Brno and its surroundings.

In the town of Lednice, they enjoyed a traditional Moravian lunch and watched a short presentation about the South Moravian Region activities. Then they visited the Lednice Chateau, its gardens and minaret (UNESCO sites), and tasted traditional local wine in the cellars of the town of Valtice. They were accommodated in the Galant Hotel in the town of Mikulov, where they visited the castle and a wine cellar.

Their stay further included a visit to the city of Brno, where they had a traditional lunch in the famous Stopkova pivnice pub, visited Hotel International Brno, Besední dům (Community Hall), Barceló Brno Palace, Brno Fairs and Exhibitions, the Holiday Inn Congress Centre, and Kaskáda Golf Resort.
