We claim a special ability to create special and original concepts as well as the most traditional events and we aim to provide your guests with special unforgettable moments that they could never have imagined.
A tour organised by Oniva can be the source of better business relationships for you, your company, and your client, because our business is all about people and our job is to think of all the details. Details are what make our incentives and conferences memorable and exciting. The success of each event lies in the details.
We have a highly experienced professional team, consisting of specialists in the destinations we work in and in their potential. Our team is passionate and motivated, loves what it does and is determined to be the best in the business.
Our business is led by principles that make Oniva a superior-standard destination management company and professional conference organiser. The first principle behind our activities is to do with pleasure what we do best.
Meetings, incentives and congresses are what we do and our principles promote events that combine professionalism and creativity, giving our customers and their guests the most memorable experiences they have ever had.
Another key of our success is to build a partnership and close co-operation with our customers. We are interested in working with customers whose values and visions match our own. We keep in constant contact with our customers, making sure that they are up-to-date on all we are doing and making sure that everything is absolutely clear.
The success of every event is in the details. Our job is to think about all the details and we know that there is nothing more crucial to a successful event than getting the details right and following through from the first proposal to the final invoice.
Excellence means knowing exactly what you are set out to do, keeping the customers' needs and desires in focus at all times. We believe there is no job that is too small to deserve our unmitigated attention. It is with this in mind that every member associated with the Oniva group has been picked out for his or her total commitment to ensuring our customers get the best.
