A private wine tasting and a fine dining experience in Castel Gandolfo was chosen as the location for this year's Italian edition of the Tiqets Remarkable Venue Awards.
The exact location for the Rome edition of the Remarkable Venue Awards was kept a secret until the evening of this year’s event. Guests met at Piazzale dei Partigiani before being escorted to the famous Ristorante Pagnanelli in Castel Gandolfo. There, they got to experience a private wine tasting in the cellars of one of the oldest family-owned restaurants in the region, before being escorted upstairs to experience the stunning views of Lake Albano and to experience Italy's culinary delights in true Italian style.
To kick off the event, a presentation by Tiqets was given by the company’s new Regional Manager of Italy, Nadia Mastrangelo. Mastrangelo shared Tiqets’ achievements in Italy during 2018 and Tiqets CSO, Maarten Raaijmakers, announced a few exciting future developments venues can expect from Tiqets in 2019.
Raaijmakers also hosted an in-depth question and answer session to further highlight Tiqets commitment to its Italian venues
“It’s been five years since we launched in Italy, and every year we continue to cement stronger partnerships with all of the wonderful venues and suppliers we work so closely with. We’re thrilled that we have helped millions of visitors experience all the wonderful history and culture that Italy has to offer and we are looking forward to the future developments of 2019.”Maarten Raaijmakers
Before the announcement of the awards, a special guest speaker, Alessandro Zissis Bernacchi from the world-renowned amusement park Gardaland, shared a few words.
“Gardaland is thrilled to work with Tiqets. Since partnering with Tiqets three years ago, we have seen an increase in visitor numbers and we attribute that to this collaboration. I’d like to thank Tiqets for helping Gardaland achieve our goals and contributing to our success by giving added value to our customers.”Alessandro Zissis Bernacchi
