San Francisco – Santa Cruz – Wine country
Our Dutch client wanted it all: the city, Silicon Valley, the beach vibe of Santa Cruz and the famous Napa Valley wine region. Our challenge was to pack in as much as we could but still leave time for guests to relax and reflect. In between visits to Alcatraz, Oracle, zipping through Redwood trees, surf lessons, whale watching, winemaking, and a hot air balloon flight, we organized leisurely lunches and dinners. Our client couldn’t be happier with the guests’ feedback: ‘trip of a lifetime’, ‘bonding experience’, ‘phenomenal’, ‘epic’ and even a ‘superCALIfragilisticexpialidocious’!
San Francisco – Santa Cruz
Our client, an international advertising agency, asked us to design a program during which its staff could meet business leaders and thinkers in the field of Big Data but that would also allow ample time for activities and experiences to have fun and play with colleagues.
The program included nights in San Francisco and Santa Cruz. Besides business visits around Silicon Valley and San Francisco, we organized a bike trip across the Golden Gate Bridge, a private art-dinner in one of San Francisco’s art galleries, a dinner & dance event in one of SF’s hottest clubs, surfing lessons in Santa Cruz, zipping through the Redwood trees, and a bohemian beach-vibe final night.
Our Australian client celebrated the company’s anniversary by bringing its staff to the tropical island of Oahu. At Turtle Bay Resort on the island’s north coast guests enjoyed a variety of activities such as surfing, snorkeling, and swimming. After two nights the program continued in Waikiki where guests visited Pearl Harbor, sailed a catamaran, enjoyed a traditional Luau and flew to the Big Island for a day to tour the volcano.
Our Belgian client invited its top clients to a Wild (yet very comfortable) West experience in de Colorado hills. The visit included a day riding on horseback with cowboys, but also a drive around the countryside in one of the many luxurious convertible cars available at the property. This unique experience created a memory to last a lifetime.
