One of the Ten Golden Rules of euromic is that all euromic members perform as "orchestral leaders harmonizing all requested services".

The Global Summit of The Consumer Goods Forum, which took place in the Halic  Congress Centre Istanbul between 20-22nd June in 2012, brought together top CEOs and senior management of over 700 of the world's top retailers, manufacturers, service providers and other stakeholders across 70 countries. Forum member companies have combined sales of EUR 2.1 trillion and their retailer and manufacturer members employ over 9.1 million people.

« Over the three days, we succeeded with all press conferences, transportations, store visits,  technical arrangements and over 25 lunch and dinner events both at the Halic Congress Center and venues all around the Istanbul such as Cıragan Palace Kempinski, Esma Sultan Palace, Sabanci Museum and Maiden’s Tower. In this event(s), every single one of our project manager performed as a Orchestral Leader and a conductor.

A conductor doesn't play every instrument, but he knows every note in the piece. He knows the phrasing of each movement. Each Project Manager at ODS knew the ebb and flow of the every single planning & dinner event within the three days whether they managedit or not... A good conductor also understands at a profound level how the instruments interact. All PMs worked very closely during the three days and supported each other when there was a need for contribution.

Our project managers “conducted" each event fluently and did not run themselves to perform all the parts because they knew that they were the foundation for each event  - keeping everyone working together through their leadership! »

One of the Ten Golden Rules of euromic is that all euromic members are highly recognized in their own country and enjoy good relationships with peers and suppliers.

« A few years ago one of our clients held an international congress in Riga, Latvia. About 50% of participants were non-European Union citizens and they needed to have visa for entry to our country. That was one of the first years since Latvia joined Schengen and we followed all the requested information and requirements very carefully.

Everything was going well until we got a call from our client's office - one of the key speakers from India, who obviously need visa to enter the country, was cruising on the river Volga in Russia and returned exactly two days before the next flight to Riga to the congress. The only possibility for him to reach a Latvian Embassy was in Moscow on Friday after 11:00a.m., when he came back from the cruise. Taking into consideration all the regulations and terms, it seemed impossible.

That was a challenge for us! We didn't give up and using our good relations and contacts reached the Latvian Embassy in Moscow, explained the situation and it was agreed that the speaker could come on Friday with passport and all the documents. On that Friday at 16:00pm, the Schengen visa was in his passport.

One of the Ten Golden Rules of euromic is that all euromic members have the capacity and flexibility to respond promptly and effectively to unforeseeable situations.

« Most all DMCs have encountered last minute impediments that hindered the operation of their group, and resourceful DMCs manage to overcome such calamities.

To this end, here is one such of our experiences:
One of our major clients on a one week cruise charter -  all shore excursions functioned like clockwork, Swiss clockwork . . . till the day of disembarkation . . . . The cruise vessel was scheduled to arrive Piraeus on Saturday at 07:00AM for disembarkation and the 450 guests were to be transferred to the airport for their departures on various flights.

On Saturday 01:00AM the Union of Tourist Bus drivers declared a 48-hour strike effective immediately in a sign to support the taxi drivers’ Union strike that had been on for the past 3 days.
Our bus contractor called me in the middle of the night to announce this news . . .

The bus contractor, our operations manager and I went to the Public Bus depot at 4:00AM and managed to rent 15 public buses to transfer our 450 guests from the port of Piraeus to Athens airport. To make it more “fun” for the guests, we had our hostesses act as ticket collectors on these public buses  . . .  
All guests made their flights with a smile . . . »
