Visiting Game of Thrones country

With the final season of Game of Thrones off to its usual mind-blowing start, AOK Creative took the chance to head to Croatia, one of GOT's incredible filming locations, to see if it had what it takes not only to be the capital of the Seven Kingdoms but to also be a kick-ass incentive destination...

Hosmark Hotels very kindly hosted us on an incredible trip to Dubrovnik, Croatia, a city brimming with things to do and ripe for incentive travel. The city boasts an interesting history, great restaurants, stunning views and of course some Kings Landing landmarks!

From the city centre out to the sprawling countryside, there is so much to do. On this particular trip we started our journey with a cable car ride up into the mountains to Panorama Restaurant and Bar, which offers enchanting views of the Old Town and also features huge portions of their signature cheesecake, which is worth the cable car ride alone!

Next we were taken on a tour inside Dubrovnik's city walls, which has a mammouth event space and giant roof terrace, and then ducked into numerous wonderful restaurants that are perfect for group dining. We then spent some time touring Hosmark's Valamar hotels, which are beautifully designed for both business and leisure - particularly the pools and the views!

Our second afternoon took a bit of a differrent turn, up into the countryside in some fun vintage Renault 4's, with some of the oldest gear sticks we'd ever seen! We were driven to a small winery to taste one or two (or six) of their best wines before continuing on to an olive mill for a traditional lamb feast!

Overall, an excellent trip to an incredible city. Dubrovnik really does offer so much opportunity for Incentive travellers, which steers away from the norm. 

 Huge thanks to Hosmark and Valamar Hotels for looking after us so well.

We had a (bau)ball

To kick off our first blog of 2019, we thought it would be a good idea to reflect on the most wonderful time of the year in 2018. December saw us supporting 130 happy clients on their events – from exclusive and shared parties to conferences and VIP trips. The team have been looking back at which ones stand out and why.
