Activities of the KONGRESSINITIATIVE MS
6. Fam-trip on June 17, 2011
The motto of the 6th Fam Trip: “Meet traditionally and modern“
More than 60 congress decision-makers from the Westphalian Wilhelms University of Muenster and Muenster University of Applied Sciences came together on 17 June 2011 in order to learn more about the benefits which Muenster has to offer as a conference and congress venue.
The professors followed the invitation issued by the Kongressinitiative MS to initially convene at the Messe und Congress Centrum trade and congress centre at the Halle Münsterland.
The participants departed from the city harbour on board the Santa Monika and after reaching the locks and visiting the “Schaustelle Kanal“ canal exhibition, they got on a double-decker and classic bus which brought them to the "Hof zur Linde" hotel. The tour of the hotel was followed by a chocolate tasting.
The last stop on the tour was Hülshoff Castle, where the participants took a journey into the past during a historic tour.
This varied program was designed to impart to the university representative how attractive Muenster is as a congress venue with its conference venues, hotels and multifaceted supporting programs. When one looked at the mood which prevailed at the event, then there is no doubt that this aim appears to have been achieved.
