MONTE CARLO, PRINCIPALITY OF MONACO – Coinciding with the Frankfurt-based IMEX exhibition, global marketplace for the events industry, from Monte Carlo comes the announcement of the establishment of an innovative event agency: InspireME Monte Carlo.
Instead, it is a full-service events agency, which, more than from the city where it is located, draws its lifeblood from the syllable “ME”, an acronym of the name and surname of its owner: Miek Egberts CMP CMM.
InspireMe: how it works
InspireME is an exclusive, reliable boutique consultancy agency offering an alternative concept of full-service event management, both for B2B, FIT and leisure, for high end experiential travel in the Principality of Monaco, Provence, South of France and Corsica.
Its service (including analysis, planning and creation, organization, execution and supervision, budget and quality control as well as location scouting) applies to corporate and private events and is always customized and tailored.
But its main characteristic is another one. As the owner says, “at InspireME we believe in creating events of a lifetime – unforgettable, truly memorable experiences. Even more, we specifically seek “behind the scenes”, “off the beaten track” and “inside the velvet ropes” experiences – which means: authenticity, not only exclusiveness, knowledge not information, hands-on learning not arms-length gazing”.
From the popular tourist routes to ‘hidden gems’, InspireME looks for unspoilt landscapes, unusual attractions, private homes, palaces or residences that have historical significance, private art collections, thus bringing genuine interaction with the local people and their fascinating lifestyles, and introducing – one of the first-ever agencies comprising it in its core business – corporate lifestyle events.
