THE DESTINATION

The Agency Leaders’ Summit this year will take place at the opulent ‘Le Chalet Mont Blanc’, a beautifully designed ski chalet set into the amazing backdrop of the French Alps.  

Hailed as France’s number one Ski Chalet according to the World Ski Awards, Le Chalet is perfect for relaxing with customers and colleagues. Carefully and uniquely designed to respect the privacy of the individual, whilst offering shared spaces that offer a perfect environment for socialising, relaxing and having fun.

The property has three lounges to cater for any kind of gathering. Catch up on the day’s activities with a coffee in the day lounge, relax after a hard day skiing (or snowboarding) in the comfortable main lounge or enjoy a drink or two in the cocktail lounge.

WHY YOU SHOULD ATTEND

ENGAGE.

This event will provide the attendee with a unique opportunity to network and learn from other senior event professionals in an intimate and inspiring surrounding.

Off site events are regarded as the most valuable use of an attendee’s time to gain deeper understanding of issues facing their role and relationships with other professionals that will aid them in the future.

EDUCATE.

The aim of this event is primarily to provide a greater understanding of; the challenges that agency leaders face and how to form new business connections amongst destinations and event planners alike.

The main subjects that the CMW editorial team will be airing in these peer-to-peer sessions are listed in the itinerary below.

EXPERIENCE.

After such a restrictive year for all of us, we understand now more than ever the importance of balancing education with experience on this summit.

Aside from the workshop sessions that’ll take place across the 3 days, we’ll also be arranging a series of exciting, interesting and relaxing activities for you to enjoy amidst the beautiful mountainous landscape of Chamonix.
