Welcome to the July edition of theSOURCE. This month we offer insights into how to choose a location for your event and get some valuable hints and tips on getting the best out of your exhibition presence from Maja Kenney, MD, Black Iris Exhibitions.

A restaurant for wine lovers! This brasserie on the rue de Fauborg in Paris, lists a selection of 110 wines that you can order by the glass.

Venue of the Month
The Mini Bottle Gallery

If you are looking for an unusual venue to host up to 80 people, then this is certainly worth a look! Christian Ringnes, whose great great grandfather founded the Ringnes Brewery is also known as “The Mini Bottle King”. Since the age of seven, he has been collecting miniature bottles and in 1996 purchased the building at Kirkegaten 10 in Oslo to house his 53,000 bottles. The venue boasts a main plenary room which seat 88, with 2 breakout rooms.

Location of the Month
Prague, Czech Republic

Equal to Paris in terms of beauty, history going back a millennia and possibly the best beer in Europe; it’s easy to see why Prague has been voted 5th top destination to visit in the world. With plenty of hotels and meeting space to suit all budgets and an international airport within 20km of the city centre, we think this is a great location for any conference.

What value do you place on corporate hospitality?

  • Extremely valuable – we have generated prospects as a direct result
  • Quite valuable – we have generated some interest but have yet to see it convert to business.
  • We don’t currently see any tangible benefit from hospitality especially in this climate.
