Discover Unique Gala Dinner Venues in Bulgaria with Insight Events Ltd

In today’s event planner’s world demands and preferences change constantly. Clients are searching for new ideas for their events, for interesting concepts, unexplored destinations and memorable experiences for their gala dinners. At Insight Events Bulgaria we have come to believe that the choice of venue is probably number one in delivering all this to our clients.

 

In the course of our practice we have handled numerous functions at locations that you would not normally imagine for an event. Being one of the oldest countries in Europe, with historic sites and tons of restored buildings, Bulgaria gives endless choice of unique gala dinner locations.

 

Our team at Insight Events Bulgaria will share with you just a few ideas for organizing your next gala dinner in Bulgaria –

 

National History Museum, Sofia

Going Back In Time

 

IMG_1769_MG_1018

Sofia’s biggest and most important museum is worth visiting if only for the chance to walk around the residence of a former communist dictator. The museum is housed in one of the buildings used by Bulgaria’s Communist head of state Todor Zivkov and his entourage. Access here was heavily restricted and the area still holds a certain mystique for the locals. For obvious reasons, no Bulgarian over the age of 30 would call the building’s typical 1970’s architecture “beautiful”. However, to a visitor unscarred by the memory of Communism’s constant aesthetical offences, the wood carving, marble floors and wall mosaics would seem intriguing.

 

As catering venue The National History Museum offers the opportunity for a grand welcome reception followed by seated gala dinner in the so-called Sunny Hall, surrounded by gold and silver treasures, Thracian, Roman and Early Christian artifacts and exquisite exhibits dating back from 4000 BC.

 

The Museum is suitable for seated dinners for up to 130-150 guests.

 

Roman Amphitheatre, Plovdiv

Dinner With A View

Plovdiv’s magnificent 2nd-century-AD amphitheater is one of the world’s best-preserved ancient theatres, located in the city center of Plovdiv, Bulgaria. It was built during the reign of Emperor Trajan, was only uncovered during a freak landslide in 1972. It once held about 6000 spectators. Now largely restored, it’s one of Bulgaria’s most magical venues, once again hosting large-scale special events and concerts.

 

Our team at Insight Events Bulgaria will happily take you and your guests on this fairylike adventure by organizing your gala among the ancient ruins of this unique location. Despite its size, the amphitheater is suitable for more intimate gala dinners for up to 50-70 guests.

 

Ravadinovo Castle, Sozopol

In Love With The Wind

From first glance, the Ravadinovo Castle is made in the style of the classic Western European castles combining various styles from the Renaissance and Romantic periods – but this comes not to be true!  The style of the Castle is one and only – a unique Fairy style. This is the secret of its magic impact – the dream that came true to make a castle existing only in fairy-tales. It was built completely of 20,000 tons of stone, which was specially extracted from the bowels of the earth in the Strandzha Mountain. According to the Geological Institute of the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences, these stones are aged about 227 to 247 millions of years. They contain traces of diamonds, which make the castle change its color – in the morning it has pink nuances, during the day it becomes white and at full moon – it glows.

 

The Ravadinovo Castle gives the opportunity for a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Gala dinners can be organized for up to 150-170 guests, depending on set up. Do not hesitate to turn to Insight Events Bulgaria for a full concept design of your gala event.

 

Sofia Event Center, Sofia

The Insight Events team is experienced in thinking out of the box and will suggest the best option for your next unique event.

EVERY CLOUD HAS TO HAVE A SILVER LINING – MAKE VISITORS BELIEVE IN OUR DESTINATION

The function of a DMC could be mistaken by some individuals as an porthole to simply secure accommodation, some transfers and other services that are required to experience a destination.

 

My personal take on a DMC is, we are the concierge for our respective destinations. The one destination contact an interested guest can go to without looking any further. We remove the question on, how to get to us?, and, what to do?

We are the best compass for directing guests towards choice accommodations, and services that best compliment their needs and wants. Because we are specialist on our destination, we guide concerned guests with advise that guides away the conversation around safety and security.

How? We do not avoid the topic, but we show them our city and countryside, and let them meet the people of the land. We allow to open discussion around topics of concern, and answer those questions with actual local knowledge from guides, ourselves and the people of our destinations.

Our strongest response is educational journeys to our countries. By hosting agents ignorant on our services, attractions and value, we educate and enhance their knowledge, and allow them to depart as diplomats.

We use our websites, social media and many other platforms as advertising, but, there is very powerful messaging through word of mouth generated by actual guest experiences.

Cape Town – a Grande Beach Event

Our group of 100 guests were looking for a relaxed setting to welcome their guest to Cape Town and South Africa. The Grande Cafe & Beach, pitched on the shores of Table Bay set the table for this elegant Cape Town welcome. Welcome with some cocktail and a sensational beach setting, guests enjoyed a sensational dinner complimented by a local band to set the tone and tunes for a celebrated evening in this iconic city.

 

 

DMC services Made in Germany – reliable and safe

In a fast spinning and transparent world, the safety reputation of a destination becomes more and more important for a buyers decision today. In fact, safety is not only created by politics and police authorities, but also by selecting a professional DMC partner. Why so, you may ask?

When choosing a DMC for your ground handling, it will not only reduce your workload, but also ensure that all suppliers are well selected. You can rely on local expertise, up to date information and the experience of the DMC with these particular suppliers. The know-how of a DMC about solid suppliers is inevitable for securing standards as well as following local rules and laws. Also, you have one point of contact managing all relevant suppliers for you. Another vital point is the 24/7 availability of an emergency phone for all your booked services through the DMC.

Made in Germany is not only limited on machinery and cars, it also includes services. When choosing Germany as your destination, you get well trained and experienced staff from the suppliers side and the DMC will guarantee with its local know-how that these services will be rendered as expected and ordered – on time and on place!

Choosing a DMC aside does not mean you buy a particular transfer or event service, but you get the liability and the professionalism of the DMC, not to mention long experience which helps saving time and effort.

So, when deciding for your DMC partner, go for expertise and safety, stated by memberships in well regarded associations like ADMEI and World of DMCs.

Denmark Prepared for Emergencies

Hadler DMC Scandinavia’s Event Crisis Plan

Event Emergency procedures are a must unless you want to play with the lives of your event participants. Event emergency preparedness has been a key aspect of the DMC industry, and has caused several DMC’s to develop standardized “Event Emergency Preparedness Plan”.

“What do we do in an emergency?” This should be the easiest question to answer for any event planner. In recent years, it has become clear that emergencies can happen at any time, anywhere. From terror threats to environmental issues, the potential for something interrupting the event or program is now more real than ever. Unpreparedness is no longer an acceptable stance to take because negligence to prepare for the worst is reckless towards your clients’ safety.

More DMC’s are developing standardized Event Emergency Preparedness Plan templates to use together with their clients. At Hadler DMC Scandinavia we are always updating our own “Event Emergency Plan”, to match the threats that have appeared in the past several years. Risk avoidance and mitigation are important values we wish to provide every client.

 

“Fail To Plan, And You Plan To Fail.”

 

Hadler DMC Scandinavia’s well-documented “Event Emergency and Crisis Guide” details what to do before the event. The guide also states which procedures to follow if a crisis, emergency, or incident happen during an event. With new research and technology advancements, it is now also proactive. It also outlines how to safeguard against and handle any cyber security issues that may arise throughout an event. Together with World of DMCs we wish to set the highest standards in destination management,  by making sure that we are prepared for any emergency.

We at Hadler DMC Scandinavia offer our clients both risk avoidance and mitigation, through careful planning of every possible event scenario. Do not take risks with safety procedures – make sure you and your suppliers have proper plans and guidelines to handle emergencies during events.

Contact Hadler DMC Scandinavia if you want a DMC who values your safety, reliability, availability and speed.
