Another Two Successful Fam Tours


This September and October, the Vilnius Convention Bureau, in partnership with the Radisson Blu Royal Astorija Hotel, hosted two familiarisation tours in Lithuania’s capital for 23 meeting planners from across Europe. 


The first familiarisation tour, which took place in September, served as a sort of refresher tour for a number of Latvian events agencies. Though the participants were already familiar with Vilnius, the tour was geared towards introducing them to the city’s newer venues, restaurants and incentive ideas. 


October’s familiarisation tour gathered event planners from across Europe, including Scandinavia, Germany, Belgium, the UK, and France. Over the course of the three-day tour, participants visited popular event sites/venues, experienced local cuisine and fine dining during a restaurant hunt, and met with local suppliers. On the third day, participants visited the best venue for medieval incentives, Trakai Island Castle, the only castle on water in Eastern Europe, located only 20 km from Vilnius. The fall foliage served as the perfect backdrop to a very well received FAM tour.


Peter Lyon from Our Man in Europe, who took part in the second tour, was impressed with the experience, saying, “Vilnius far surpassed my expectations – such a beautiful, fascinating and underrated city! A good infrastructure, range of high quality conference venues, and a compact and interesting Old Town. Vilnius ticks so many boxes for groups that are willing to give a new destination a try.”
