tmf #Eventscout in the #LagoMaggiore region


In the coming days our tmf eventscout programme for the Lago Maggiore region will start! In total three selected German event organisers will travel together with a friend or partner to northern Italy and discover the area around Lago Maggiore for events and meetings. They will take pictures on-site and will give us a short summary after their trip.

The first eventscout, an event manager from a well-known international chocolate manufacturer, is going to fly from Frankfurt am Main to Milano Malpensa on Saturday September 28th and back on September 30th. During three days the lady will explore the wonderful area around the town of Verbania. She will be staying at Grand Hotel Majestic, located in the district Pallanza. It is a historic four star hotel facing the lake and member of Small Luxury Hotels of the World.
