CONNECTIONS


CONNECTIONS WELLNESS IN PORTUGAL FIRST EVENT FOR THE WELLNESS SECTOR TO BE HELD IN THE ALGARVE IN OCTOBER


Connections’ first event for the wellness sector will be held in Portugal at Macdonald Monchique Resort & Spa from October 28 to November 1. Connections is working with Stella Photi, founder of Wellbeing Escapes, to put together the first Connections Wellbeing and create an event format for educating buyers about the wellness industry, and how they can make wellbeing work for their businesses. Micaela Giacobbe, founder and director of Connections Events, said: “We have recognised the growing importance of wellbeing in our high- net-worth clients and the value this can add to an agent’s itinerary.” A five-star woodland escape in the heart of the Algarve, the all- suite Macdonald Monchique Resort & Spa offers tailored spa treatments for guests, and a wellness programme that incorporates the hotel’s natural surroundings. Delegates of Connections


Wellbeing 2017 will take part in one-on-one meetings while enjoying activities such as nature walks, yoga, kinesis classes, cycling and paddleboarding, as well as pastry baking, olive oil and wine production, traditional Monchique


wicker basket-making class and T-shirt painting. Visit Portugal will be the country


partner for the event and will host a dinner during the event. Algarve Tourism, Monchique Tourism and the president of Monchique, Rui André, are also sponsoring the event as destination partner. “Several Connections events


have taken place in Portugal and we know they are top-quality events attracting good buyers, in this case for the wellbeing sector,” said Antonio Padeira, director of Visit Portugal. “Connections Wellbeing 2017 will


take place in the western interior of the Algarve – a place that most tourists have not yet experienced. “The event will be based at Monchique Hill, with all its natural beauty, and will allow delegates to visit the surrounding places to experience local history and tradition, including Silves and Sagres. Along the Portuguese coast we have a huge offering of spa and wellness resorts that provide tourists with different experiences – from thalassa and medical spas, to traditional spas integrating yoga, meditation and nutrition workshops.”
