How it all started
Our main goal is to help clients organise their Corporate and MICE events in Andalusia, providing them with the highest excellence standards to guarantee their event is a success.
Who are we
· Patricia Ruiz
Director of Sales
I was born and bred in Malaga, in a family with hospitality and tourism background. I went to Malaga university, where I studied a degree in Tourism Management. Shortly after completing my studies, I left Spain and lived in different countries – Northern Ireland, France, Italy and Scotland. Besides improving English, French and Italian, I worked in different fields of Tourism, such as Hotel Marketing, Revenue, Tour Operators and DMC’s.
After roughly 12 years abroad, I decided to come back home and do what I do best in an environment with great growth potential -Andalusia has much more to offer besides great weather and stunning beaches. The MICE industry is growing exponentially year after year, and it’s my pleasure to help you organise your next event in my fantastic homeland.
· Rubén M.Cenzano
Director of Operations
I come from Burgos, a great little city located in the North of Spain, where I also completed my degree in Public Works Engineering.
I then moved to Scotland, where I earned my Masters in Civil and Transportation Engineering and became a Chartered Civil Engineer (CEng MICE).
After 10 years working as an engineer, including a transfer to Italy, I decided I wanted a career change – although Transport Planning is thrilling, I decided that was not what I wanted to do for the rest of my life.
I always found Tourism and Event Management was something I could do for a living, so after moving to the South of Spain, I enrolled for a Masters in MICE management and discovered a passionate world that I also enjoy.
· Carolina Marina
Director of Global Support
I was born in Spain, where I was raised with a curious spirit that made me graduate in Tourism Management. This background helped me travelling the world and work in tourism, an industry I am passionate about.
I have lived in several countries and cities such as London, Edinburgh, Berlin, Dubai, Munich or Hamburg. Besides Spanish, I also speak English and German.
I have primarily worked in corporate and commercial fields, many of them focused on aviation. My background also includes positions in the operations department, where I developed my skills as a Quality Control Manager in a multinational tourism company operating in 10+ countries in Europe. I supervised that the services provided met the required quality standards.
I am currently doing my internship here – it’s great!
I love sending proposals to clients, scanning documents and making coffee. I am young but hunger for knowledge and I speak cat and human language, too. Before working here, I used to play tag with pretty much anything I came across.
