Case Study: Private Orient-Express for incentive professionals
The magazine 'Corporate & Incentive Travel' chartered the Orient-Express's British Pullman for its annual corporate forum.
The luxury British Pullman was the perfect train to carry 70 delegates in ultimate style back to London as the climax of the event.
The prestige of the invited guests - senior buyers from companies such as Moët Chandon, MSN and BBC Worldwide - was matched by the onboard grandeur of the train.
The comfort and individual character of the Orient-Express carriages was exemplified by their inlaid marquetry, plush furnishings and gleaming fittings. This was the ideal environment in which to spark discussion, do business or simply relax in elegant surroundings.
Not surprisingly, the journey from the cathedral city of Chichester to London's Victoria Station was a resounding success. Fine chef-prepared dining with excellent wines, which was served by uniformed stewards, further raised enthusiasm.
Clint Cordale, brand and events manager at NPower Business, was one of the guests. "It was my first time on board and I loved it," he said. "The whole experience takes you back in time and they really go to town to lay on a special event. I'm definitely looking at booking a future event myself."
