Tamakkan’s innovation tours are normally organized on a public registration basis and are customizable for groups of corporates and institutions who want to send their delegations on immersive business and learning experiences. Due to Covid, this year’s innovation tours are scheduled for the second half of 2021, and are organized upon request for businesses and institutions under strict safety measures that comply with visitor city ordinances.
In the past we have taken business delegations on innovation tours to Dublin, Amsterdam, Stockholm, Guanghou, Dubai and New York. Programmes have included vists to anchor events happening in the cities but also bespoke sessions and side business meetings with private and public entities.
Our group tours are highly customizable, and can be directed to meet specific strategic objectives and outcomes. While many of our standard visits are one week long (+ 3 days of travel and leisure time), we adjust timings to suit specific needs. Let us know about your requirements.
