Gabriel planned, organised and hosted a Latin America Movie Night at London’s Soho Hotel where 7 short films were shown an audience of 100 people, including members of the travel trade, press, instagram influencers and past guests.
The inspiration for the event came from the production of a new film for the Latin America Relais & Chateaux delegation (for which Gabriel was the script-writer and co-producer).
The following Relais & Chateaux hotels participated: Awasi (Chile and Argentina), Sol y Luna (Peru), Hotel B (Peru), Delfin Amazon Cruises (Peru), Casa Palopo (Guatemala), Cavas Wine Lodge (Argentina) and Txai (Brazil).


Around The World

LOCATION: THE BINGHAM HOTEL, RICHMOND

Around the world is a new joint venture developed in conjunction with a small group of like-minded UK reps (all owners of their companies, Gabriel is the only one representing hotels in Latin America). The concept came from a desire to provide an evening for travel agents who sell worldwide trips and to train them in a different environment – hence starting with mindfulness, before networking, and finishing with a local gin tasting.
