Below is a brief photographic summary and text of our most recent AGMs.
The group has always been very fortunate to have had wonderful Hosts that volunteer from all over the world to organise our annual conference that brings everyone together. All our Hosts have paid special attention to ensure everyone is looked after from pre flight arrangements like visa help, through to airport taxi pick ups and oversee professional arrangements of the meeting throughout so all events run on time.
Finally we remember the good times they create, with the local food, music, culture and good laughter we all sample of that place, at that time, together.
We hope you will join us at the next AGM, as these meetings are organised for everyone, the chair is there and we hope you will fill it.
Held between the 16th and 19th of September, at the Hilton Hotel in Batumi. 66 delegates from 44 companies covering 57 countries attended. Again the AGM structure was one afternoon / evening session followed by 2 full days of one on one meetings. This AGM contained almost all of our Russian, CIS and Eastern European agents who met for the first time to develop new business together.
Held between the 18th and 21st of September, at the Hilton Hotel Vienna. 113 delegates from 68 companies covering 73 countries attended. This was a special occasion as we enjoyed a record attendance for an AGM. And also to celebrate the fact that Five Star had reached the great milestone of its tenth birthday!
Held between the 20th and 23rd of September, at the Atlantic Palace Hotel Agadir. 86 delegates from 49 companies covering 60 countries attended. This was our first North African AGM and convenient for all European agents as well. DMS Mar kindly arranged a very interesting post AGM tour to Marrakesh that members enjoyed afterwards.
Held between the 22nd and 24th of September, at the Crown Plaza Airport, Beijing. 68 delegates from 44 companies covering 57 countries attended. Many people stayed on afterwards to take advantage of the tour to the Great Wall and also the Forbidden City in Beijing, something many delegates had wanted to see.
Held between the 24th and 27th of September, at the Hotel Kaya Izmir. 90 delegates from 58 companies covering 78 countries attended. Again we were fortunate enough to extra activites arranged such as visiting the ancient city of Ephesus and again looked after very well with wonderful Turkish hospitality.
