Thursday: the socialising take-off
With a long journey ahead, but in good spirits, our HOC team set off in the early morning from Brussels airport. A flight and a whole lot of bus hours later, we arrived at the beautiful Sheraton hotel in the evening. There, we took a refreshing shower and got ready for dinner at Pacher Haus, which was organised for us and our colleagues from the Netherlands. We enjoyed a walk-in dinner, a small game to get everyone in the right spirits and when the apéro(l) started to sink in, fraternised with each other like long lost friends. Our very own Régis Watrisse, Managing Partner of Mediascale, was the DJ of the evening, and so we danced until the late hours of the night. Well, until we all had to catch our last bus, that is.
Saturday: surviving the aftermath
The early bird catches the worm, or so the saying goes. Luckily for our hungover colleagues, there were plenty of proverbial worms left all day round. With beautiful weather and again, the stunning Wolfgangsee in the background, we further enjoyed each other’s company while getting a tan, chilling in the pool or lake and snoozing away in the rhythm of the water.
In the early afternoon, it was time to say goodbye to our international colleagues and the stunning location that had been our home for the past days. Time to travel back to Belgium, tired, but with full hearts.
