Grandeur in the Old World
For more than a century the Grand Hotel Europe has stood at the centre of St. Petersburg's social, cultural and business life. Situated in the heart of the city's main shopping district, the hotel, which evokes the elegance of the tsars, is a renowned venue for high profile events. With its sumptuous art-nouveau style and outstanding event planning services, Grand Hotel Europe represents one of the "old world's" most unique locations for meetings, conferences, banquets and receptions.
Journeys to remember Offering unforgettable day trips to some of Great Britain's most enchanting destinations, the British Pullman and the Northern Belle trains make the perfect venue for a moveable feast. Flexibility is the key: the train can come to you and fit in with your timetable as departures are nationwide and the schedule all-year round. Groups from 16 people to charters of up to 252 are welcomed and entertained aboard, with each passenger made to feel a guest of honour. Gala dinners, product launches, Christmas parties and spectacularly tailored charter trips: the trains are ideal for many prestigious corporate events.
The Carioca icon The most renowned hotel in Rio de Janeiro is located right in front of the ocean: the Copacabana Palace. The hotel, which can boast a long history of illustrious guests, is an impressive location for social events and corporate functions, from intimate meetings to glamorous receptions. Counting on stunning décor, vivacious entertainment and a dedicated team of professionals, the Copacabana Palace delivers all year long the same spectacular swing Rio is known for at New Year and Carnival.
Beneath the great African sky The landscaped gardens of the Mount Nelson Hotel are a spectacular place to host an event: mature trees and flowering plants from around the globe create an idyllic environment, overlooked by Cape Town's most famous landmark: Table Mountain. The combination of grace, excellent service, modern facilities and exceptional location allows the hotel to cater for a range of functions both large and small within easy access of the international airport and the business centre of Cape Town.
