Seminar @Hilton Vilamoura, Algarve

After we had to cancel our planned seminar at Algarve in June because of air traffic controllers' strike in France, it worked out on 24 September: Our first seminar in Portugal. The participants from various resorts throughout the region and of Thomas Cook were very active in discussing. Particularly different feedback cultures of guests from the UK and Germany were discussed and the respective different impact of TripAdvisor and HolidayCheck for each resort. As an opportunity but also a big challenge all participants recognized the metasearch connections review portals and also Google offer. The seminar was held at the Hilton Vilamoura. For the second night we chose to stay at Martinhal in the very southwest. As always we took the chance to look behind the scenes there and chat with responsible marketing staff and the GM. Besides the wonderful location offered to do some fitness (running along Martinhal Beach to the lighthouse in the harbour) before flying back home. Hopefully very soon: Adeus em Portugal!
