"Dear Mr. Waddoup
thank you very much for your e-mail. We participate the first time in forum, which have been organized by a foreign company, as the CzechTourism (the Czech government agency) generally organizes such workshops for Czech subjects abroad. Anyway, your forum was for me very useful experience. I would like to highly appreciate your event. It has been on a most professional level, the buyers understood their business. Moreover the Czech Republic as the destination is very popular among Russian, so a lot of buyers were interested in our offer. We were whole day very busy, so we hope it brings us a good business. I exactly recommend your forum other Czech subject dealing with congress and incentive tourism; it shall be for them very interesting."

"On the eve of the MITT, the Moscow MICE Forum was organised in the President Hotel in Moscow. It was organised by the aiGroup who are well know for their tourism workshops and other events. This forum underlined a newly added direction towards MICE. This forum had a great advantage in its wide and highly representative character. It's more than 30 participants included convention bureaus, hotels, DMCs, and airlines. The geography of the participants varied from Scotland,. Turkey and Portugal to Kenya, New Zealand and Mauritius.
Significantly many of the international exhibitors arrived to Moscow exclusively to participate in the forum and did not stay over for the MITT exhibitions that began the following day. Maybe we can assume that the participants of the Moscow MICE Forum established enough contacts at the President Hotel to call their mission to Moscow complete?"
