Ten80 Thinking 

Ski race - corporate conference Chamonix
Ready, set, GO!

Ten80 Events recommended Chamonix as the perfect conference desintation for this client, just an hour's drive away from Geneva International Airport.

Many people wouldn't realise it, but there are some excellent state-of-the-art conference facilities in Chamonix able to host over 400 guests with break-out rooms and catering. 

The client had organised for the world famous economist, Nouriel Roubini, to attend as the after-dinner guest speaker. Ten80 Events found the perfect restaurant with both excellent food and the space and acoustics for this occasion.

To satisfy the requirement for some serious fun, Ten80 Events organised a professionally-run ski race. Over 80% of conference attendees participated in the event which finished with a formal ceremony and trophies.
