Last week, Evangeline and Linda travelled to Gstaad for a site inspection ahead of Connections Switzerland – and were completely wowed by what was waiting for them.
After landing in Geneva, they took a stunning two-hour train ride through alpine scenery – the journey was not only beautiful, but stress-free, as everything ran efficiently from the moment they stepped off the plane.
Claudia from Destination Gstaad greeted Evangeline and Linda in Gstaad them and took them up to Glacier 3000 ski resort – with an altitude of almost 3,000 metres – where several Connections Experiences will be taking place during the event. What an unbelievable location for a business meeting!
Sledging, cable car rides and tobogganing are just some of the possibilities for the event. Bernard from Glacier 3000 was on hand to show Evangeline and Linda around – and we were super proud of Linda, who conquered her fears by crowding the resort’s “Peak Walk” suspension bridge, go Linda!
The team then travelled back down the mountain to meet Sheila from Switzerland Tourism at Gstaad Palace – one of the host hotels of Connections Switzerland, who will be welcoming us for a cocktail reception on our first evening together, sponsored by Swiss watch and jewellery retailer, Les Ambassadeurs.
After a lovely catch-up with Sheila, the team explored the centre of Gstaad, and were struck by its quaint buildings, with luxury stores like Rolex and Louis Vuitton housed in gorgeous wooden Alpine buildings. The mountain backdrop in the distance, with their peaks dusted with snow just added to the fairytale atmosphere.
We’re so excited to showcase all that this incredible country has to offer! Sheila and Claudia have been working tirelessly to make Connections Switzerland come together, and we can’t wait for delegates to arrive in September and see all the magic for themselves.
Connections Switzerland will take place from September 16-19, 2018. To enquire about attending, please contact Micaela on firstname.lastname@example.org
