July 2019: Site Inspections, events and agenda planning
July has seen the team travelling to Stockholm, London, Warsaw, Berlin & Bath! That is over 4,500 ZiaBia miles!
Our site inspection travels began with Charlotte attending the M&I Forum in Stockholm, Sweden. Charlotte had the opportunity to do ‘speed dating’ sessions with venues from various European locations. Information was shared on her return to ensure our product knowledge at Team ZiaBia is up to date. Charlotte also got the chance to view event options in Stockholm such as Scandic Continental, Berns Restaurant and went on a RIB boat tour.
Debbie visited the Intercontinental London O2 for a branding site inspection ahead of a confirmed event we are working on for November. This was a great opportunity to see the space again with the client and the AV Team. The next site inspection for this event will involve food tasting – yum!
Debbie & Charlotte then teamed up in Warsaw, Poland to view possible options for an event in February 2020. They saw two fantastic venues in Warsaw during the site inspections for a 2020 event. A difficult choice to be made now....great conference hotel in the City Centre or excellent Eco venue with no distractions? It’s always great to have options!
Vicky & Paola have also been in Berlin with a client and the team from Some Bright Spark. They visited a few hotels but shortlisted the Hilton Berlin & Hotel Nhow Berlin for the meeting and Spindler & Klatt Restaurant as a possible off-site dinner location. The hotels are both very different in style, but both work for the flow of the event. So, once again it is decision time where the theme of the event will take centre stage.
An excellent visit and great to spend more time as an extended team fine-tuning the details of this event for 2020.
Customer Experience Event in Bath
ZiaBia supported Helen Rich and her Taste of Bath team with an event which took place at The Botanist in Bath. This was a great opportunity for Helen’s customers to come and meet the producers and taste their delicious local wares. It was great to be able to work with Helen again on this highly successful event for the second year running. In 2020 we have been confirmed to work on the event again as well as a new launch which is very exciting!
With seven events for an energy client confirmed to the end of the year we have been busy writing logistics agendas. Each event is slightly different, and it is great to be able to work through these plans and see how each of the events will flow and see it all come together. Next steps are to prepare the communication plans to share with the customers and then the project trackers for each event.
We have another new face joining the ZiaBia Team in August who Vicky, Debbie & Natalie have all worked with in the past and are very much looking forward to them joining the team.

Another great month that moves us even closer towards the goal of creating “memorable events that bring your vision to life”.
