What an evening!

I’ve just arrived back to my hotel in Cannes. This evening I was hosting a terrific Connections networking dinner at the fabulous L’affable restaurant in Cannes.

Conrad Algarve and Connections Luxury

Micaela Giacobbe – Connections and Joachim Hartl – Conrad Algarve

For us, Connections is a year round activity and this evening’s mini gathering is a great example of this. At every opportunity, we work really hard to bring buyers and sellers together. Tonight it was simply wonderful watching everyone connect with each other and form relationships.

Some of the attendees had attended our inaugural Connections Luxury back in September and it was really good to hear their feedback and suggestions for our next event at the Conrad Algarve in March. Speaking of which, we were joined that hotel’s General Manager, Joachim Hartl. I spent a good amount of time telling everyone about what a lovely property Joachim has. I can’t wait to take everyone there.

A few of the guests tonight were completely new to Connections and I hope after the brief taster, they will consider joining us in Portugal.

Goodness me it was good really good fun. The wine flowed, the conversation flowed, and the food was amazing. An ideal evening, I think!



I hoped the food would be good. I’d heard great things about L’affable and this evening we were treated very well. Thank you to all the team for a great experience! If you get an opportunity to visit, let me say that the duck foie gras was divine. Plus, we ordered soufflés for desert — and we finished a bottle of Grand Marnier to accompany.

If you’d like to come along to one of our future mini gatherings or our main events, please drop me a note and let’s discuss!
