Good morning, as ever I’m going to start with the weather, oh that rhymes. I positively enjoyed the weather last week and then Saturday came and Sunday arrived and now today Monday talk about mad March. Poison from Russia (allegedly) and now the weather, cold weather, snowy weather, windy weather from Russia. Last week we thought winter was over in the famous words of the football commentator “they thought it was all over” he continued to say as a goal was scored in the final moments of play “it is now” I would like to say “it is now” but I think that might be a little bit of wishful thinking.
How was St Patrick’s Day for you? Was it a good craic? St Patrick’s Day fell on Saturday a perfect day for everybody to instantaneously become Irish and get slaughtered beyond belief, Sunday being recovery day, perfect timing.

This week I’m out with Filipe De Pina the MD of TA DMC Portugal and the DMC that we have been representing since 2007, WOW eleven years I simply don’t know where the time goes. Anyway I hope the weather performs for us as we are heading to the north of England.

News Flash from Istanbul – this week I’m absolutely delighted to tell you that Muge and the team at Dekon DMC Istanbul received two confirmations for events in Istanbul this year. This is great news, Istanbul is a wonderful destination, I lived there for six years. It’s nice to see that Istanbul is coming back.
This time last year, I had just returned from hosting a Business Development Event to Morocco with Visit Morocco DMC. We were in Marrakech such an amazing and very different destination only 2 hour 40 minutes flight from London. The airport is almost on the Marrakech high street transfer time from landing to Jemma El Fna square is less than thirty minutes. Can’t believe it was a year ago. Time to go back for sure
