October 2014The Passing of a Legend, and Sagapo at IMEX America
euromic bids farewell to its first president, Harry Baum
It is with fond memories and great sadness that we learned of the recent passing of Harry Baum, an industry pioneer and legendary figure. Known for his wit, intellect and wisdom, Harry was a treasured member of the euromic family and will be greatly missed by all.
"Harry taught our industry around the globe a great deal", says Mr. Karim El Minabawy, President of euromic . "He was truly a teacher and mentor to many of us as well as to many people around the world."
Harry served as the first president of euromic from 1974 to 1976 after the association's founding in 1973. It was during his presidency that much of euromic's unchanging philosophy was introduced. These ideals guide our work today, and we continue to focus on local expertise, creativity, ethics, top quality programs and the best service to our valued clients.
His legacy was further detailed in the British press, including this article at MeetPie: HERE
euromic supports Sagapo Children's Foundation at IMEX America
For every appointment made with one of euromic's 37 member DMCs at the upcoming IMEX America in Las Vegas, a donation will be made to Sagapo Children's Foundation. This is in addition to euromic's ongoing financial commitment to charitable organizations.
Sagapo is dedicated to working with children, families and their communities worldwide to reach their full potential through education. Their mission is to create a better learning environment for children and increase awareness among their parents, communities, and governments about the necessity and importance of proper education. The organization was founded by Christina Drakos, who is also the President of Drakos DMC, the euromic member in Cyprus, and is one of our charities of choice.

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