This is the first time that PRO SKY has organised a Fam Trip for French MICE agencies… and what a fantastic experience it proved to be! Whether it was the organisation of the event, the careful selection of activities or the invitation of selected MICE clients, the collaboration between PRO SKY, Rocco Forte and Anvideas was perfect. And it showed when we arrived! Read our article to discover the programme of these 4 unforgettable days in Sicily.

 

Familiarisation trip to Sicily and local exploration

It all started on Saturday 28th October. At Paris Orly airport, all the participants gathered around Rocco Forte and PRO SKY for the imminent departure to Palermo. Once on the island, everyone discovered the beauty of the area, from Rocco Forte’s Villa Igiea hotel to the wonders of Palermo through activities organised by Anvideas.

These 4 daysincluded:

  1. Discovering the narrow streets of Palermo’s rich architectural heritage in traditional Ape taxis with a fascinating guide.
  2. Buggy rides through the rolling Sicilian countryside, with its rich soil and natural treasures: pomegranate, almond, prickly pear and olive trees.
  3. A private tour of a winery with tasting of local wines, followed by a gourmet lunch with food and wine pairing in the winery’s lounge.
  4. A visit to the magnificent Selinunte area, with its majestic temples full of history.

The Fam Trip to Sicily was certainly rich in cultural visits and gave MICE agencies an exceptional introduction to the region. But it was also rich in meetings and exchanges. Each guest, as well as our partners and François-Xavier Camus, our European Sales Director, were able to share their experiences and have fruitful conversations. The entertainment from early morning until late at night also contributed to the general good mood throughout the stay. We can say with certainty that everyone enjoyed an unforgettable moment!

As host and organiser of this familiarisation trip, François-Xavier Camus presented PRO SKY and our Group Flight Platform.

Some participants have already benefited from our services and expertise. Getting together in this sunny setting gave them the opportunity to talk freely about their future projects, as well as receiving fascinating feedback that will enable us to improve our services even further!

We’d like to thank everyone who took part in this trip, our partner Rocco Forte and our local DMC Anvideas. Thanks to them, it was a fantastic experience. Needless to say, we look forward to organising future fam trips.
