Our fabulous Select Road Show

On the Road - and a success in every way. In this blog we publish images from our Road Show, when over 30 of our luxury hotels travelled with us to celebrate the launch of our new Select Collection brochure, and mingle with our special invited customers. All this helped to raise money for charity in four Nordic centres.

An auction of fabulous holidays brought in 406000 SEK in Stockholm, 40100 EUR in Helsinki and 367500 NOK in Oslo. In Stavanger, where we have our newest office, a lottery prize draw raised 11000 NOK. All of the money has gone to charity.

Standing buffet and mingle with around 100 of our new potential clients in this lovely town. Venue was Breitorget (open space galleria) with catered food from Restaurant Renaa. We filled the whole space and also made use of the café space in connection with the open galleria space, to fit our entourage of suppliers. Our host was Stavanger based comedian Rune Bjerga and we had a lottery prize draw that raised 11 000 NOK to Kronprinsparets fond.
