December is fast approaching which means that Christmas is just around the corner. So what does this mean for ECMeetings? Since most but not all of us here in the office are Roman Catholics, this is a special time of year as we prepare to celebrate the birth of Jesus. But I don’t wish to turn this blog into a religious recollection of our faith. What I would like to relate today is what the ECMeetings office and the MICE industry are like during this period.
Like in most places around the island, we put up a Christmas tree and various decorations to get into the Christmas spirit which also makes the office that little bit more cosy and welcoming. As most business travel is put on hold during the last 3 weeks of the year, it is a time when DMCs like ourselves as well as many of our conference and incentive suppliers take pleasure in not having to rush to work or around the island manically. So with several visits and drinks receptions with our favourite suppliers we get to make merry and discuss business in a somewhat amicable atmosphere.
Along with all the merriment we also believe that Christmas is a time of giving and helping others and therefore as an office we reach out to others who are in need. With various CSR activities organised along with our MICE suppliers in Malta we take pleasure in working as a team for a good cause at this special time of year.
I really do love Christmas in Malta. Let the countdown begin.
