MICE Industry Scores an Amazing Goal


Miek Egberts CITP CMM DMCP CMP, founder and owner of InspireME Monte-Carlo, a Monaco-based boutique consultancy agency offering unique and alternative concepts in full-service event management, DMC services and conscientious Luxury Travel with a sustainable and holistic approach, has been added to one of the most prestigious “halls of fame” of travel & tourism: the list of the 222 Conde Nast Travel Specialists for 2020.

Here’s the motivation:
“Egberts lives and works in her glamorous destination, and she carefully selects guides, specialists, craftsmen and other experts as well as conducts regular training on various topics from conscious travel to emergency preparedness». For the Luxury Travel market, InspireME provides unique innovative and inspiring experiences for individuals, couples, families and groups. «A selection of some of the experiences her guests have enjoyed: a backstage visit of the Opera of Monte Carlo, a private meeting with a Formula One celebrity, learning to make custom perfume with a nose in unique private garden, and a Michelin starred picnic on a luxury yacht.”

It is rare that a MICE professional, used to working with companies and boutique top-incentive planners, makes it on such prestigious list, normally devoted to specialists in leisure travel. Which means a great deal as to the awareness and the importance that the MICE industry effects tourism and has gained notoriety within the whole of the industry.
