February 2014euromic begins 2014 with Annual General Meeting in Cairo
euromic recently began 2014 with its Annual General Meeting, held January 17-20 in Cairo, Egypt. The event provided representatives from euromic's 36 member DMCs the opportunity to reconnect with colleagues, welcome new members, discuss association and industry issues with client and media representatives and lay out plans for the years ahead.
The Assembly adopted a major change within the Association: the “World Affiliates” concept will disappear immediately and all current World Affiliates will become full members. New entrants will also be welcomed as regular Euromic members. After almost 10 years, both members and World Affiliates (destinations outside Europe and the Mediterranean) felt it was time to eliminate this distinction and present all members as part of a global Association.
The gathering, held in Cairo as a testament to the association's commitment to the region and its members there, was generously sponsored by the Egypt Ministry of Tourism, Egyptair, the Cairo Marriott Hotel and euromic's member in Egypt, Emeco Travel. The hosts organized an incentive-style meeting which featured visits to many of Egypt's top sights and venues, including the Pyramids of Giza, the Egyptian Museum, the Mena House and a post-tour Nile cruise from Luxor to Aswan.
In addition to the meeting and social functions, both a special award dinner and educational seminar were highlights of the event. The award dinner, held at the Salon Royal of the historical palace of the Cairo Marriott Hotel, was graciously attended by H.E. Mr. HishamZaazou, the Egyptian Minister of Tourism, and featured honorary tributes to euromic's past presidents from the association's 40 year history: Harry Baum, Jean-Claude Murat, Herbert Uhlir, Issy Scher, Elhamy ElZayat, Marc Dans, H.E. Munir Nassar and Giancarlo Carrera.
“Recognizing our past Presidents was the least this second generation of euromic members could have done to thank those eight leaders who worked to keep our Association on the cutting edge of the MICE business over the past 40 years," says Mr. Karim El Minabawy, President of euromic. "Activities and expansions agreed upon over this 41st annual general assembly are to ensure that euromic will continue its leading position for future decades.”
Following the meeting, members, industry guests and press offered their expertise for full-day seminar on the motivational business, which was well attended by local inbound operators and Egyptologists.
