Saturday the 14th of April: it was time for the annual UNIGLOBE convention. The highlight? The awards show! The past years we have won many great awards. Did we win again this year? Quickly read further to find out.
The UNIGLOBE Convention and Awards show
This annually returning day is about more than just the awards show. The main purpose of this day is to come together with all UNIGLOBE colleagues, learn from each other and be inspired by interesting speakers.
Early in the morning, the goMICE team was welcomed at the Kookfabriek in Amsterdam. After a great cup of coffee we started the day with a wonderful and fun boat excursion through Amsterdam.
During the tour we stopped at several suppliers. Among others, the Hotel de L’Europe and the Heineken Hotel. Surprise! Two hotel employees came aboard and handed out special Heineken beers. At the same time the lunch buffet was opened. The party had started!
After the excursion through the canals, which took about two hours, we returned to the Kookfabriek to have an inspiring speaker take us on a journey to the future. In different ways we found out which challenges we would find on our paths. But most importantly: we learned how to be able to handle them as well as possible.
The awards show
Finally, the time had come for the awards show. This year it was presented by Peter Heerschop. What a great persona! And once again, we went home with wonderful awards!
In the pocket!
First, the award ‘Business Travel Consultant of the year’ was won by Bianca Huijbregts! The final two awards are the most coveted; ‘Agency of the Year’ and ‘Franchise of the Year’. The second one we won last year. Agency of the Year was a bit further in our past, in 2012.
The final two awards were presented by the director of UNIGLOBE Holland himself. And after the first two sentences we started to believe we might be the winner. And yes! We won the award again in 2017. We were so happy and proud! Earned by the entire team: about 40 employees, and we have dedicated the award to them again. We have a top-team!
When things started to quiet down, we started the cooking workshop. At large stoves we worked hard. Supported by a masterchef. Afterwards, we enjoyed the 4-course meal that we prepared ourselves. It was delicious!
The day flew by. We look back at a great day and are extremely proud of the awards we have won. Until next year!
