PR Events

Ah I’ve had a busy year of attending PR events with various tourism boards and it’s been lovely! Read on for some of the most interesting ones so far 😉

Celebrating the launch of Norwegian Air’s nonstop flight from San Francisco to Copenhagen – May 2, 2017

This week I was grateful to attend a chef tasting prepared by head chef Andreas Bagh, Executive Chef at Copenhagen’s Michelin-starred Marchal restaurant at the Hotel d’Angleterre in Denmark! From the delicious Scallops to the San Francisco Pigeon it was truly a culinary experience! Not to mention the chef and his crew were quite easy on the eye 😉 If you ever get a chance to fly Norwegian, don’t miss it! Check out pics of the pigeon dish here!

Celebrating Virgin Atlantic’s non-stop route from SFO-Manchester – April 20, 2017

Wine & Cheese Pairing class with Renaissance Tuscany – February 23, 2017

This was such an awesome experience! I got to meet several journalists and the General Manager from Renaissance Tuscany II Ciocco Resort & Spa this evening! We were part of an intimate wine and cheese pairing class media event and I got to learn all about the various cheeses from the beautiful Serchio Valley. One of the most unexplored areas of Italy, the property is located on a hill overlooking this valley. Imagine activities such as visiting the local market, cooking with the chef, wine tastings, a wind cave and the walled city of Lucca! We spoke about travel, the property and I learnt how to better pair wine and cheeses – it was a ton of fun and hopefully one day I’ll get to visit this part of Italy! Check out my pics on my Twitter feed!

Annual German National Tourist Office West Coast Press Conference – February 22, 2017

This was a wonderful afternoon that started off with a brief cocktail reception that began at noon, followed by sit-down lunch and a news presentation by the tourism board people at Waterbar, located on San Francisco’s very scenic waterfront!  I met the new Head of PR, who educated us on 2017 PR themes, including Martin Luther and 500 Years since the Reformation, the art exhibition Documenta 14, the international Garden Festival, the opening of the Elbphilharmonie as well as culinary highlights of Germany! I also got to meet the editors of a few local magazines which was pretty cool!
