XLP AGM 2018 – Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam
XLProjects has completed their 6th AGM showing record numbers with over 140 delegates covering all corners of the globes.
Hosted at the Sheraton Saigon Towers in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam from 5-7 September 2018, our AGM was, by all accounts, a huge success.
We kicked off our AGM with a welcome reception in the Wine Bar on the 23rd floor of the Sheraton Saigon Towers, which offered a breathtaking view of the city. Returning members were reacquainted and new members welcomed to the network whilst enjoying the delicious hor d’oeuvres and free flowing drinks.
LoadLine (Casablanca, Morocco) kindly sponsored the name tags whilst C. Steinweg (Durban, South Africa) sponsored the lanyards to make introductions easier.
The next morning, we were treated to excellent presentations from Jimmy Tay of WiseTech Global, Ilya Nefyodov of Volga-Dnepr Airlines, and Kollett Muhajiz from CMA CGM.
Afterwards, we began the first round of one-on-one meetings. FLS (Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore, USA, Indonesia, Vietnam, Taiwan and Australia) sponsored the notebooks that were included in the welcome packs to help our members take n
otes during their meetings.
Thanks to Star Shipping’s (Karachi, Pakistan) for sponsoring the evenings entertainment on the Bonsai Legacy Dinner River Cruise on the Mekong River. The dinner gave our members a chance to unwind from the meetings and enjoy the views of Ho Chi Minh City at night.
The final day was spent on a double session of one-on-one meetings. We then adjourned to Night Spot on the 23rd floor of the Sheraton Saigon Towers for the prize draw and awards ceremony accompanied by an impressive spread provided by the hotel.
Our members donated numerous amazing prizes for the draw, which saw the lucky winners go home with some excellent goodies.
