Nestled in a previously abandoned building now beaming with folk architecture, The Art Foundation Gallery is a hub for cultural preservation and was the perfect place to try our hands at ancient ceramic techniques.

The retreat was awesome. I met so many amazing people – agents and suppliers. I couldn’t believe how wonderful everyone was. This makes me even more excited for Miami!

 
 
-Kylie Osmundson, Luxury Travel Designer, Skinny Dip Travel

My first Retreat was in 2019 and I loved it! It was fun, organised and well structured. Not only did we have the opportunity to meet our partners one-on-one to educate them on our property and destination, but we also had the chance to bond with them in a unique location and relaxed environment.

-Ranga Chidawanyika, Director of Global Sales, sbe Group

I had so many interesting conversations, often feeling inspired by the stories I was listening to. Us ‘Travel Industry’ types often have a lot in common, but this group was particularly open and friendly.
