New Bentley GTC Croatia car launch

Bentley GTC Croatia car launch

Bentley GTC Croatia

At the end of 2011 Global Connect did one of it’s most exciting events to date – a Croatia car launch for the new Bentley Continental GTC. It took place over the course of 8 weeks, with reporters from all over the world flying into Croatia to test drive and review the new vehicle. This competitive pitch went out to multiple destinations, but in the end it was Istria in Northern Croatia which captivated the essence of the car, and the feel our client wanted to deliver. Combining the towns of Pula and Rovinj, the spectacular Monte Mulini hotel, and not one rainy day for all 8 weeks made this event a huge success. Head over to the testimonials for a review of how our team did on the Bentley launch.

This is the second Croatia car lunch GC has done in Northern Croatia, but many more on our horizon. When you combine the natural beauty of Croatia, the mountainous and rugged Montenegro, with the blue Adriatic waters in the background and our loving service – you simply can’t go wrong.

Mostar Bridge - GC Sarajevo DMC

Mostar Bridge

As the rest of Southeastern Europe rises to meet the challenges of the discerning MICE industry, so too does Global Connect. We’ve expanded to offer our high service level in those areas with our Sarajevo DMC. Bosnia & Herzegovina is a country making a mark for itself as an incentive destination, offering some of the best natural beauty and wilderness in the region. A great place for the adventure types, Bosnia was just ranked as one of the top 10 adventure travel destinations in 2012 by National Geographic. Lonely Planet also cited that Bosnia is “poised to become Eastern Europe’s year-round centre for adventure”.

The city of Sarajevo – a living museum of history – also offers excellent hotel and conference facilities, a well connected airport, and is surrounded by numerous superb ski hills such as Jahorina, one of the sites used for the 1984 winter olympics. Contact us anytime to find out more about this exciting region, only a short flight and centrally located from any European city.

GC Rovinj DMC in Istria – Destination Spotlight

Rovinj DMC in Istria

Our Rovinj DMC in Istria

As mentioned in the previous Bentley article, the base for the event was at the Monte Mulini 5* hotel in Rovinj, Istria in Northern Croatia. Dubrovnik will always be the jewel of the Adriatic and the most known Croatian destination, however after the Island Hvar, Rovinj in Istria is becoming very popular with our clients. Only two hours from London with multiple airports in the region and increased flight routes, we’ve been able to put together some exciting proposals for clients based out of here. In Istria we can combine the beauty of the Adriatic sea, with plenty to offer on it’s continental section. With rolling hills and pristine highways, it’s no double why Bentley chose this place for their global launch. Istria is also very well known for it’s gastronomy and cuisine culture, especially with truffles holding the Guinness world record for the largest ever unearthed.

Send us an e-mail and our Rovinj DMC would be happy to provide a sample proposal, images or more details on this picturesque town in Istria. Dubrovnik isn’t’ all Croatia has to offer, so for those of you who’ve been there, come back, we’ve got plenty more to offer!

GC Hires new CFO and Stress Management Consultant

Roxy stress management

We’ve had some staff updates the last few months – our stress management pooch Chia has been replaced by Roxy, and we’ve hired a new account manager Nikolina who’s been with us for years in our production company Adriatic Productions. However most important is our new CFO Bobby Vidakovic, all the way from Australia. Bobby is the brother of Bruno Vidakovic, our set build engineer on events and who was pivotal in the Bentley car launch. We’re very fortunate to have Bobby’s brains and love for numbers to take over the financial side of our business – a good offset to Bruno’s braun and build experience for the hands on part of events.

Head over to the team section to check out photos of everyone. By the way, Chia is fine, we just needed some younger puppy action in the office to help keep everyone centred.
