Corporate Ski Trip

Corporate Hospitality

  • Private Equity Client

  • Verbier, Switzerland

  • 50

Outline Brief

This private equity client knew two things – they wanted a ski trip and they wanted it to be very special.  A corporate event with a difference, a ‘thank you’ that would genuinely impress their top clients.  No small feat when hosting a group of high wealth individuals.

Key Objectives

  • Surpass the successes of previous corporate hospitality events for this client with a real ‘WOW’ factor
  • Create a guest experience that perfectly mirrored the company’s world class client service
  • Seamlessly accommodate skiers and snowboarders of all abilities

Solution

Original creativity, clockwork logistics, attention to the finest detail and faultless service from first communication to the moment the guests departed was paramount.  With two cohorts of client and staff flying in/out back to back, our team had to create the very best experience in a short amount of time so the pressure was on!

Our solution began with a beautifully designed mantelpiece invitation delivered to every guest.
  The sense of being invited to something very special instantly created a real buzz.  This was followed with a concierge style service to tailor every guest’s personal travel logistics and requests.  It is this attention to detail which defines the service KC Events provides.

After weeks of refining every last element, the guests arrived to a champagne (and fine beer) reception at a carefully selected, private boutique chalet.  It boasted all the luxuries and amenities one could possibly require in a property, including an award winning in-house chef.  Our plans included a dedicated team of expert ski instructors, beautiful après lunches on the alps, lively partying with seasonairs and world-class refined dining – all expertly scheduled into a 3 night event.  At one crucial point our calm & efficient crisis management skills were called upon to rectify a lost passport drama
- everything was remedied without missing a beat.

The Result

All the guests took away special memories, great stories to recount, and crucially a hugely positive few days with our client’s key staff.  Here’s what the client had to say…

The most spectacular corporate hospitality ever experienced in a long career. Everything was just perfect: great company, lovely food, the nicest chalet in the Alps, world class skiing and top guides. Over lunch, when I was chatting with Richard Branson, 
he said he wished he had stayed in our chalet!  I know how much time and effort goes into these events, 
so particular thanks to Kelly for
 world class organisation.
