The Appointment Group UK Annual Conference - Bournemouth

The Appointment Group’s (TAG) UK annual conference took place in England's seaside town Bournemouth on Saturday 28th January 2017. The company’s London and Manchester offices joined representatives from the company’s international offices in New York, Atlanta, Los Angeles, Nashville, Sydney, Melbourne and Singapore to review the group’s performance in 2016 and discuss plans and objectives for the coming year.

The Hilton and Hampton by Hilton Bournemouth hosted the company’s 170 delegates for the presentations and accommodation. Representatives from our sponsors at Hilton Hotels, Travelport, Direct Air Charters, Virgin Atlantic and Delta Air Lines were also present and a key part of the conference, participating in all the teams’ activities. The evening dinner took place at the Hilton Bournemouth with the menu representing each of the four countries where The Appointment Group operates.

The conference was designed to bring together the company’s six specialist divisions of Corporate Travel, Touring, Private Clients, Events, Film and Media and Sports with shared goals, common practice and greater understanding of the company’s vision and core values. Key messages this year included understanding our company DNA, consolidation and consistency across the divisions.

In Australia, following the acquisition of Axis Events, a major Sydney based Event Management Company in December 2016, one of this year’s main priorities is the full integration of the Axis staff, plus business development and future growth plans for the company’s Asia Pacific regions.

During the afternoon, the staff’s knowledge was put to the test as 20 teams participated in a TAG related quiz show, run by Bluehat, which included variations of popular game shows ‘Who Wants to be a Billionaire’, ‘Familiar Fortunes’ and ‘Million Pound Drop’. The teams finished the evening with fun filled karaoke performances.
