Nikos Alexic
Local Event Manager in Belgrade

Nikos joined the team in August 2010 and is our local Belgrade expert. He is now on his ninth year of working in the travel and event management industry and with a background as a manager of Belgrade's top night clubs he is also one of Belgrade's greatest night life experts. He loves to practise and watch sports and he is in fact a licensed FIFA TMS Manager and scouts football players in his free time.     

 

BELGRADE PICK:

 

Take a walk down to the river side. Belgrade has two big and wide rivers running through it (Danube and Sava) which splits the Old town from New Belgrade and has many beautiful restaurants, bars and clubs floating on the river.

           
 

  

Speaks English, German and French

 

Arne Krasting
Local Event Manager in Berlin

Arne joined the team in 2013 and with over 15 years of experience as both the founder and CEO of an Incoming travel agency, he is our Berlin expert. His expertise in organising and operating events together with his love for the German capital makes him the perfect manager for any type of Berlin incentive. When he is not working he spends every free minute enjoying the culture, history and food of the city. As a matter of fact, he is currently writing a book about the Berlin cuisine.

 

 

BERLIN PICK:

 

Strolling around the neighbourhoods of the city, and discovering new once were I haven't been before. Even though I lived here for many years there are still a lot of places I've never been. 

           
 

Speaks English, Hungarian and Italian

 

Imola Goró
Local Event Manager in Budapest

Imola has worked in the travel industry for over 10 years and she has extensive experience working in the MICE-field but also with special interests groups and leisure clients. Imola is a genius at creating tailor made experiences and knows all the spots of Budapest worth considering. As a child she loved to dance and do martial arts, and she still practise them whenever she has the time. If she's not on the dance floor you can find her hiking in the nearby Buda hills.

 

 

BUDAPEST PICK:

 

Visit a thermal spa during winter time. Sitting outside in the hot water while it's snowing is a really sensational experience.

 

Visit the ruin pubs - you never know what you will find there. It is even surprising for us locals, as there are always new placed popping up all the time. The most famous one is Simpla Kert, but I recommend you take a walk and visit the other ones as well.

A tour in the Tbilisi metro tunnels, a visit to a Georgian bath or a night hiking in the canyon near Tbilisi!

In this free time he enjoys collecting classical music vinyl or spending time in his dark room developing black and white photographs.

 

PRAGUE PICK: 

 

Prague has dozen of amazing gardens and parks to offer: from baroque jewels beneath Prague Castle, to former military fortresses, not to forget hills with centuries-old trees towering above the river, orchard with fruit trees, or mysterious gardens, where you could easily get lost. 

 

             
   

 

Speaks English, Estonian and Finnish

 

 

Asko Plaado
Local Event Manager in Tallinn

Asko joined the team in August 2012, and has over five years experience in the travel industry.

Asko knows Estonia and its surrounding and will put together a group incentive that will guarantee you will enjoy both Tallinn and Estonia to the fullest. In his free time he's engaged in music and loves to play the drums.   

 

TALLINN PICK: 

 

Enjoying a walk in the old town is a must, but I would also recommend to go a bit further out of the city centre. Estonia has a beautiful coastline and amazing open air museum.

             
   

Speaks English, Lithuanian, Russian and German

 

Arvydas Silva

He will be extra thrilled if it involves a ball sport or driving, as he is a huge fan of any sport that involves a ball and great speeds. 

 

VILNIUS PICK:

 

Have a beer in the Uzupis district. It’s like Vilnius' version of Montmartre, and the perfect place to relax with a beer.   

             
   

 

Speaks English, Polish, Russian and Spanish  
 

Piotr Jaworski
Local Event Manager in Warsaw

Piotr joined the team in March 2014 and is our local Warsaw expert. After a career in journalism and media, he started working in the MICE business in 2003. With 11 years of experience Piotr knows all there is to know about the Polish capital and how to make the most out of it. He also get a kick out of showing different sides of his city and breaking the stereotypes of it. He enjoys spending his free time in the nature and exploring new areas, preferably from the saddle of a bike.

   

 

 WARSAW PICK:

 

As I love nature I would recommend a bicycling tour along Zeran channel (ca 15 km) which leads to the artificial Zegrze lake.

As the channel is very slow and silent, kayaking there is a great way to enjoy it and possible even for laymen!
