Allen & Overy and Linklaters were among the corporates attending the Rocco Forte Collection fam trip to Prague at the weekend.

Some 30 delegates from corporate and agency event teams and travel agencies attended the trip, hosted by Rocco Forte's Augustine Hotel, which opened in May.

Representatives from CI Events, DBMT and HBI Grass Roots were also among attendees.

The Rocco Forte Collection UK regional director of sales Patrizia Di Patrizio said: "The reaction we have received from our customers has been excellent, they found that the trip not only gave them a very good insight into the city but also gave them the opportunity to network with key members of the travel industry."

CI Events event manager Alison Francis said: "Seeing the hotel has been really good and everyone here has been very helpful. Prague offers lots of attractions and tours so if delegates had a meeting in the morning and a free afternoon they would have a wide choice of activities."
