Here are some comments of our many satisfied clients:
The International Association of Dredging Companies holds its Annual General Meeting all over the world and over the years has worked with many different DMC’s. Organising a high-end event with 100+ participants that have “seen it all” multiple times and in amazing locations around the globe is a real challenge. Marc, Céline and Olga managed the task perfectly. We had wonderful guides who were not only very energetic and enthusiastic about Barcelona but also knew when to take a pause from giving information.
The team managed everything with care from a successful gala dinner in the Gran Teatre del Liceu to arranging motion sickness tablets for our boat tour outside the harbour. They were also honest when discussing non-recommended activities and advising us not to overload the programme. The social tours were good and the recommended restaurants even better.
In short, it was a joy working together and they are one of the best DMC’s we have ever worked with. Finally, the support they gave my colleague who had never organised such an event before was very much appreciated.

We have worked with some DMC's across Europe in the past few years and we are really happy to say that Marc Schwabach and his team from Ambiance Incentives was one of the best DMCs we have ever worked with.
True to the motto: "There is no such thing as impossible" or "What cannot be implemented in this way is made possible with an adequate solution". Quality is very important here and the “know how” is also at a very high level. A happy team, with smiling faces and a positive way with which it is simply fun to run the event together.
A clear recommendation to everyone who wants to plan a trip or event with a competent, reliable team. Fortunately, the Ambiance Incentives service is not just aimed at Barcelona.
Thanks again for this sensational experience with you!

Marc and his team successfully handled the ground logistics for several thousand of our guests going through Barcelona in October this year. Ambiance Incentives did a great job and we were very happy with the service you and your team gave. Thank you so much for all the hard work and putting up with our endless changes!

I would like to thank you all very much for your proposals, advice, recommendations, site visits, emails and help onsite at our event in Madrid this year. It was my absolute pleasure to work with you all on what has proved to be one of our most successful events of the year!
Thank you for suggesting Madrid as an alternative to our brief and for sourcing such fantastic venues for us. Madrid turned out to be perfect, with perfect weather too! Thank you for meeting us for site visits and being our intermediary with the venue and local Spanish suppliers.
Thank you to all of you for your time, enthusiasm and efforts onsite at the event. You were all a really nice group of people to spend time with and to work with!
For all our future Spanish events, Ambiance Incentives will be the first agency we contact (I miss emailing Céline already!). I can honestly say you are one of the best DMC’s we have worked with and we very much look forward to doing so again.

Each year my company takes our top sales people on a fantastic trip. We have been to some remarkable destinations such as Italy, Morocco, Mexico and Belize. Since I have been in charge of planning this trip for over ten years now, I have learned that choosing a good DMC will make or break the trip. I specifically look for someone who REALLY knows their venue so that we can enjoy the nuances of the local culture.
Ambiance Incentives is one of the best DMC's I have worked with ever. Their staff is wonderful, punctual and knowledgeable. Their network of local professionals is extensive, and everything went very smoothly. I described in detail the type of experience, venues and accomodation I was hoping for, and Ambiance delivered exactly as described.
I always request a "signature experience" for our last evening, and they didn't disappoint. I will never forget the looks of my group's faces when our private opera performance began - it totally knocked their socks off!
I wholeheartedly recommend Marc Schwabach and his team at Ambiance Incentives to anyone planning a trip in Barcelona, or any other city that they operate in. The only challenge that remains is how to top it next year!

Your pre-meeting services, customer services, efficiency, recommendations of vendors and ability to provide an extremely WIDE range of services proved to be invaluable to me.

I wanted to thank you so much for all your hard work before and during the event, you were awesome!! You made my life so much easier, which in turn made my client's life easy, which was my main objective. She was fairly nervous before the event as it was her first one at this company and she wanted to do a good job and she said she felt so calm all week, she couldn't believe it! Please give a huge thanks to your colleagues who were amazing, so pleasant and calm, always that one step ahead anticipating any problems. What more can I say?

Now that I am just about fully recovered from the Incentive Weekend you so expertly organised, I would like to relay not only my own thanks, but those of the whole group who attended. Feedback has been very positive and management have acknowledged that the objective of making the group feel special was not only met but surpassed! Consequently, the boost has motivated the team to continue to perform well (probably in the hope that they will win the next competition!!!) You can't do better than that. From an Event Manager's perspective, I would like to thank you for delivering not only what you promised - but over and above it! The party's sheer enjoyment at various venues resulted in arrangements having to be manoeuvred to allow longer stays - which you did without fuss or complaint. It really was appreciated. In brief, top notch delivery start to finish. A sincere thank you.
