World of DMCs Snapshot: Bringing Large and Small Groups to Albania and Kosovo




As part of International Meetings Review’s partnership with the World of DMCs, here’s a look at a what a DMC based in Albania can organize for small or large incentive events. 

In January 2015, Albania Holidays DMC organized two events for the Albanian office of the stationary giant BiC International. One event was organized in Albania and one in Kosovo. The 48 participants in the three-day Albanian event experienced the extremes a small country like Albania has to offer staying one night in the mountains at the four-star Razma Resort Hotel and on the Durres beach at the five-star Palace Hotel & Spa

In the mountainous village of Razem, the attendees took part in a very original treasure hunt involving the natural surroundings with woodlands, hills, caves as well as local houses and people. The party continued in the evening with a traditional BBQ dinner with fresh local organic produce from the village, huge bonfire and acrobatic performances from professional acrobats from the National Circus. 

The next day competitive games in the indoor pool of the hotel where rewarded with prizes for the winning teams. The attendees then transferred to Durres beach where water-based games and the indoor spa where the highlights of the afternoon. The party atmosphere was ignited again with a pool dinner with fresh fish Carpaccio and a party with music from a DJ which continued into the late hours of the night. 

The next day the group went on a degustation visit to the factory that produces the Scanderbeg Brandy, a popular Albanian brand. An urban settings treasure hunt continued the team-building theme. 

Albania Holidays’ newly opened Kosovo office (based in the capital Pristina) organized an event for a smaller group of 15 people from January 30-31 at the Trout Hotel in Istog. Known for its landscape and crystal waters full of fresh water trout, this was the ideal place to host the event for a smaller group. The attendees participated in a “catch your own lunch” fishing competition, setting up a friendly rivalry as almost no one had fished before and many of them lost their catch several times before extracting it from the water. Both events ended with a formal business meeting. 

Albania Holidays DMC invites you to consider Albania and Kosovo as possible destinations for your next event.
