The first day kicked off with a traditional cocktail, where everybody among those present took the opportunity to rebuild comradery and professional connections; the gathering later carried on at the Fortuny Restaurant, where everybody enjoyed a pleasant evening in the Spanish capital.
Having been held between the 26th until the 29th of April, the Meeting had a very diverse Agenda which included workshop sessions, tourist activities or food tastings, turning it into a unique experience.
We were honored to have with us companies from different countries, which outlined throughout the day the competitive advantages a BGI membership poses in their countries. The IT department also delivered presentations aimed at informing us about the new solutions waiting to be implemented, and the strategies to be proposed in order to change our website in terms of marketing.
Our evening was topped off at the Nuevo Club of Madrid, where we enjoyed the presence of different ambassadors and members of diplomatic mission from more than 18 countries, leading figures, partners of the firm, clients and friends.
The second day of our XX Annual General Meeting had an early-start with a series of presentations held by various prestigious companies, focused on several areas: IT Security, Digital Marketing, Tax Refunds etc., which subsequently led to a networking session between our partners and these firms.
The event was followed by a conference held by Mr. Borja Martínez Echevarría (lawyer specialized in legal communication) which tackled the topic of Legal Marketing and its implications for our businesses in the 21st century.
Our day concluded with a well-deserved dinner at La Habanera restaurant.
The Balms Group International XX Annual General Meeting ended on the 29th of April, with a visit at The Royal Palace of Madrid (Palacio Real de Madrid) which we explored in its entire splendor, while appreciating its historical value. We celebrated our evening with yet another experience of the cuisine and lifestyle of Madrid, at the famous restaurant La Taberna del Capitan Alatriste.
We expressed our goodbyes at a casual but classy gala dinner, at the renowned Teatro Real of Madrid. Among dishes bearing the seal of the prestigious Chef Ramón Freixa, cocktails and words of our president, Juan Luis Balmaseda, the 20th meeting also represented the perfect occasion for awarding our partners and organizers for their work.
Congratulations to our new partners! Welcome to the BGI BALMS GROUP INTERNATIONAL family.
