4 Tips For Setting Up A Luxury Corporate Events Company

If organising exclusive events in luxe locations for corporate high-flyers sounds fantastic, a career in events planning might be your calling. Add a can-do attitude and lashings of charm and you’ve got a firm foundation for success. But excelling in the events industry is also extremely hard work — so here are four tips for setting up a luxury corporate events company. 1. Find your niche Since you aspire to work with high-end clients, you’ve already selected a specialism. But you can narrow down your niche even further by focusing on trade shows, corporate dining or collaborative charity fundraising events. And you might also forge links with partners for seasonal events — for instance, working with sailing experts like Charter One Yachts means you can charter vessels for exclusive parties during the Yachting Festival de Cannes. A broad knowledge of corporate events provides a foothold in the sector — but filling a gap in the…

Every homeowner wants to make the most of their garden as soon as summer strikes, and the warmer weather comes around again. Unfortunately, a tired, dull exterior will make you want to head back inside. That is why you need to read how to make your backyard ready for summer and create a luxury space you can use all year long.

The Sunday Brunch At Le Mirador? Do Not Go!

The Sunday Brunch At Le Mirador? Do Not Go!

The sunday brunch became more than a habit, it became a art of living. It is one of the best moments in the week, that you decide t spend good time chilling-out and preparing for a new week to start (without thinking too much in it). So generally you look for a great place with great food and that everything seems easy and comfortable. That was definitely not the case last Sunday at Le Mirador close to Vevey in Switzerland. And here is why I would not recommend this place. Before: it was amazing I remember the time that Le mirador was part of the Kempinski hotels administration. Everything was fantastic for the customer. From the first step into the place, the personnel, the quality of decoration, the food, even the hotel itself was a great place to stay. The Spa by Givenchy: one of the best spas in the…
