IPPAG members in Dubai
06 November 2014
The IPPAG Cooperative's annual autumn Managers meeting for 2014 was held in the United Arab Emirates / Dubai with local member company Jasani LLC acting a host.
IPPAG members from around the world met up for 4 days of meetings, visits, social events, and celebrations...
Held independently from a trade fair event, IPPAG's autumn meeting is hosted by a different member every year: past events have taken members around the world, and in recent years: to Mauritius, Turkey, Czech Republic, Amsterdam, New York... The event is true highlight of the IPPAG calendar.
Members have time to meet, discuss and exchange ideas in a relaxed atmosphere: spending 4 quality days together, with an incessant flow of best practice discussions and group work. Meeting topics included IPPAG's Responsible Sourcing and CSR program, Partner suppliers, a survey of members website / webshop tools, sales discussion on the development of new business, and much more... Plans were also put in place for next years event where the 50th anniversary of the IPPAG Cooperative will be celebrated!
Dubai provided an exceptional setting, and also gave members more insight into local member Jasani LLC's activities, and the reasons of their great success in the past few years...
Members visited the tallest tower in the world: the Burj Khalifa, and also escaped from Dubai's hustle and bustle with a memorable team-building desert safari expedition.
The traditional 'best case' story awards for the most innovative sales campaigns were awarded to mcs Kick&Rush (Belgium) / Compacon (Netherlands) / Pandinavia (Switzerland).
