An incentive trip can be called a success if all participants were excited, surprised and informed. A good example is the Berlin trip, which GPM set up for the Belgian company Alkreizen for Actief Interim. The group was made up of 270 young participants from Belgium, mostly women. The challenge was to create the right mix of culture, fun and culinary experiences with a hefty dose of team building. Alkreizen is a Brussels-based company that supports people changing jobs and careers. The aim of this staff trip was to strengthen the bonds between employees. As a joint experience is the best way to do this, we developed a concept and a go-as-you-please programme that focussed on activities for the group as a whole. We held a graffiti workshop in a unique location, an old brewery soon to be turned into new apartments. The result was more than 40 impressive canvases that now decorate the Alkreizen office in Belgium. It wouldn’t be an event without a celebration – under the Berlin TV Tower to be exact. The three-day event was rounded off by enjoying music, good food and a lot of fun while taking in views of Berlin from the riverbank.
Hotel NH Collection Berlin Friedrichstraße
This exclusive 4-star hotel was the perfect starting point for the Alkreizen group’s trips through the German capital. Located on the famous Friedrichstraße with its wide range of shops, its central location is close to the best-known sights like the Brandenburg Gate and the majestic boulevard Unter den Linden. From here, the Alkreizen team were able to easily begin their varied activity programme through the city, and end their day with a relaxing drink at the hotel bar. Comfortable and modern rooms, an impressive fitness room and a rich breakfast buffet also impressed our guests.
Berlin on foot, on water or from the air!
Experience Berlin’s best sights from new perspectives! That’s what the Belgium team wanted – so the GPM team offered them a varied activity programme. The Brandenburg Gate was an ideal starting point for the first day, as other sights could be visited on foot, like the Holocaust Memorial and the Reichstag – guided and informed by our city guides all the way. Berlin can also be easily explored by water, with its network of more than 180 kilometres of waterways! So the next day, the group took to a rented boat with plenty of good food and their own DJ to keep them entertained and dancing with atmospheric lounge music. They also visited the TV Tower to see the hustle and bustle of the city from above. The 360° panorama over Berlin and the surrounding area really showed the varied nature of the city, and was the perfect end to the Berlin Incentive.
