Meet and Greet for Bdc hosts in real life

Could B.com organize a yearly event like a convention with workshops and top tips for interested hosts?  Would be marvellous!  We could meet "somewhere in the middle, please?"

Then Michael B could be the entertainment organizer. 

 

Greetings, 

Aaltje B.

Aaltje B. that would be a grate idea. Although BDC organized the click 2018 in Amsterdam last year, it was not possible for me to attend. It was very expensive for my budget.

Hope Michael can organize a convention that we can all attend.....

Hello there!

Hope you are keeping well.

I actually was invited to a workshop thingy last year that Booking.com set up. It's done by the Account Managers who hold workshops per Area. I was unfortunately unable to go (it was also my Birthday, so it would have been EPIC), but I heard it was very learn some.

Perhaps contact your account managers and ask if there is one in your area?

I've been saving up since last year to go to Click 2019. I just need to see if I am actually able to go.

Keep well :-)

You lucky people! You will so love it !

Amsterdam is very interesting. Don't forget to watch de Nachtwacht Rembrandt Masterpiece.

My family was born there. It has an incredible history!

And don't forget to hire a bike too.

We are going, but miss out on Click. Will be back by then. BUT, you could take some ideas and share with us in Aussie.

En je hebt iemand die alles voor je in het Nederlands / Belgish vertalen kan. Handig hoor! Gratis vertaalbureau, haha.

Since September is still high season for some of us it's difficult to meet in September. As for Click 2019 it would be a great opportunity of all of us to meet but it's too expensive for me at least.

@ Aaltje. Yes, the Click event would be great. But an informal meeting with fellow hosts in Amsterdam would also be nice.

Hello from Down Under...
Click sounds like a great event but toooo far for those of us in the Southern hemisphere to attend!!
Would it be possible to have an Australian/NZ event, even if its every couple of years, to meet and greet and talk to BDc ??

Hi EVERYONE...We are back !!! (haha) it was a fabulous trip to Argentina and we had a ball...............too much Champagne ( Katerinka and "M" especially) too much food.too much fun fun, but unfortunately back to work and a super March and April for us already..90% booked out YES !!!!.

June of Stringybark hills( Love the name, its the name of a Gum Tree in Aussie) we have an apartment in Surfers called The Pinnacle Apartments and I think your idea of a Click in Aussie is Brilliant, We are going to the Click so if you and ANYBODY else who has any suggestions for improvement let me know and Rita and I shall be very vocal and ask the questions for ALL of us.

I am going to ask the question of Location and the score because a lot of us have properties for rent that are not close to everything (for a reason) Peace and Quite and yet suffer due to a poor score for location when the guest already knows where the location is ??? We had a recent guest who said our property was Magic but could be closer to the Beach....hahahah The Beach is 200 metres away..How do you answer that question ???!!!

June I will look up your property today to see where you are in Aussie BUT I will voice your IDEA very strongly at the Click (Many thanks)

Hi Michael and Rita,

Welcome back and thank you for remembering me. I am very happy you had wonderful trip, pleasure for eyes and soul.

I somehow feel that bringing opera singers in Dubai is your next business idea, and I believe wholeheartedly it will work.
