Due to COVID-19 restrictions, professionals in events and destination management have been severely impacted. Indeed, people can no longer travel freely and experience the full offerings of a destination in-person.

However, the MICE guru couldn't simply wait out the pandemic. They were resolved to offer a captivating virtual experience for eventprofs and destination marketers.

In putting together the Digital Trip, the company's objective was to immerse the audience in a unique destination: Stavanger, Norway. The company faced the challenge of showcasing the city and offering attendees a full experience of a destination, despite not physically being there.

Keeping that in mind, the MICE guru wanted to create a nontraditional event, going beyond a typical conference with a sequence of keynote speakers and panel sessions. They sought to deliver an immersive experience that would push boundaries, being a vibrant, fun, and inclusive event.
