Senator Meetings & Incentives provides services in the domain of “MICE”, motivational and corporate travelling. The major impulse for the foundation of the Senator Meetings and Incentives company came from its founders’ long-term experience in working with agencies focused on incentive and congress tourism – from the client’s point of view.
Thanks to the gained experience from Czech as well as the Middle and Eastern European environment, which was even multiplied by long-term work in international companies, we decided to establish an agency specializing in congress, motivational and incentive travel for IT companies back in 2004. Our focus has been on the importance of high quality and 100% customer service right from the beginning.
Our growth is directly linked to our client’s initial satisfaction. The focus on full customers’ satisfaction simply paid off – the existing clients became loyal clients. Our new clients are spanning the globe and are from all circles of life and business. The growing portfolio of customers led to a broadening of the spectrum of services which Senator Meetings & Incentives provides – the agency became a member of IATA, we have added a new department dedicated to the business travel of Czech companies internationally. We expanded our services to foreign clientele coming to the Czech Republic by offering them exclusive packages. As well as the above-mentioned emphasis on the absolute customers’ satisfaction, we have built a solid reputation thanks to the innovative approach to providing services.
However, Senator Meetings & Incentives offers its clients not the unrealizable but rather the unforeseeable, which includes the opportunity to experience the unknown through unique adventures. At the same time, our clients can rely on us to always get the best care without any need to compromise. After all, we have a lot to build on having a long-standing experience working on both, clients’ and service providers’ side. Our team’s daily motivation is striving to meet our clients’ thirst for new avenues to explore.
Today the company has 15 full-time employees and offers services in three key areas:
We believe that our services will be of interest to you and that we will use any chance to prove that it is possible to find a trustworthy partner in the field of corporate travel.

I founded Senator Meetings & Incentives in 2004, when, after providing sales and marketing services to international IT companies for more than 8 years, I decided to start my own company focused on congress and incentive tourism. Although 13 years have passed since I founded the company, I love working for my clients as much as I did on the very first day. I like to spend my free time in remote places that are not frequented by tourists and give me the space I need to rest and relax.
I’m the Sales Director and a partner at Senator Meetings & Incentives. I studied tourism at the University of Economics in Prague. I have been working in the travel industry for 21 years: 10 years at the Czech Airlines travel agency and 11 already at Senator. I am responsible for larger projects and travel a lot to acquire new clients and contracts. I am also in charge of the creative side of the company and ensuring that Senator remains a company that provides bespoke services to each of its clients. Leisure time? What’s that? Perhaps you mean what I do when not working for Senator or caring for my family [my husband Ales, our daughters Linda (10) and Alice (13), our cat Žofka and our hairy mini rabbit Tymián], and that is swimming, listening to music, going to the movies and meeting up with friends.
I have been working at Senator for more than five years. Before joining the company, I worked for a large corporation were everything was impersonal, so the family-like atmosphere at Senator was a very nice and welcome change. For me, being a part of great team is highly motivational. Every morning I now look forward to going to work and overcoming new administrative obstacles and challenges.
I have been working in the travel industry for over 25 years and have been with Senator Meetings & Incentives since Spring 2005. I am responsible for the long-term client portfolio and help organise company events, conferences, congresses and incentive events. Even after all these years, I still enjoy my work. I love spending my free time with my family and friends. I also enjoy culture, good food and drink, and, of course, travel.
After graduating from the Secondary Hotel School in Prague with a specialisation in hotel management, I went on to study the Business School of Commerce – Trade Academy, where I received a Bachelor’s degree in tourism, airline transportation and banking. After completing my studies, I spent two years in the hotel industry working as a receptionist and reservation manager. Altogether I have been working in the hotel and travel industry for 18 years now, with the last 16 focused mostly on the Canadian and US markets. I now specialise in sports and student groups and airline and industrial conferences. I am very keen on all sports, but in my free time I mainly play badminton and swim. My passion, however, is organising various sporting events in Europe for our clients from across the ocean. I also enjoy traveling, fine cuisine, jazz and animals.
I have been working for Senator Meetings & Incentives since 2009. My previous jobs in the hotel industry helped me gain a wide range of experience. At Senator, I am responsible for organising company events, with my specialisation being medical congresses. I enjoy working with people. In my free time, I like doing all kinds of sports, going to the cinema, meeting friends and reading books.
I have been working in the travel business for almost 25 years, 10 of which for Senator Meetings & Incentives. Until 2014, I was in charge of the leisure, conference and incentive groups from Scandinavia, French Canada and Belgium. My job is my biggest hobby. I like to be in touch with clients and strive to provide them with the best service possible – their satisfaction is what motivates me more than anything else. In January 2015, I became Office Manager, a position which I hold to this day. My job is to ensure that the company runs smoothly, both organisationally and legally. My other hobbies include my dog Annie (who is very noisy despite her tiny size), travel, cinema and music.
I began my career in Paris as a project manager in an advertising company. Since 2010, I have been working in business travel as an event manager and specialising in the French-speaking market. Before that, I studied political science and international relations at Charles University in Prague and at the Sorbonne in Paris. In my free time, I like singing in a choir, practicing Tai Chi Chuan and traveling around the world, to Japan in particular, as I am fascinated by the country’s culture and cuisine.
I began working at Senator Meetings & Incentives as a member of the Incoming Team in February 2015. After graduating from high school, I spent five seasons abroad working as a travel guide. Before I joined Senator, I was responsible for international events in the automotive industry. Now I have managed to perfectly combine both my passions: tourism and events. My Bachelor’s degree in sports marketing is an indication that I love sports, but I also like spending my free time with my puppy Eduard and reading good detective novels.
I started working in the travel industry when I was studying at university. My first assignment in the field was as a tour guide. I then accepted a job working as a project manager and event organiser with a focus on French and Italian clients. As I am a proud native of Prague, I also love promoting my home town. Even though I have wandered its winding streets and explored its hidden corners countless times, Prague always reveals something new, a characteristic of the city that not only I but many filmmakers appreciate. Besides historical sights, I am interested in film, particularly classical films. I also like modern theatre and good food – a combination that abounds in Prague. Even after working in MICE for 20 years, I still enjoy what I do and derive great pleasure from it.
I have been working in business and incentive tourism as an event manager for more than 15 years. After many years of experience in the travel industry, I decided to join Senator Meetings & Incentives in January 2016. I see my work is a great challenge. It offers me many exciting opportunities and the chance to meet many interesting people of different professions and cultures. In my free time, I love travelling around the world. I am fascinated by different cultures and history, as well as by the beauty and diversity of nature. I never miss a chance to take photographs and share memories with my friends and family. I am also an avid reader and a big fan of ballet and classical opera.
Traveling has been in my blood since childhood. I could even say that I was born with the travel bug. I have been working in the field of tourism for more than 19 years and know it well from both sides – as a traveller and as an operator. I have always wanted a job that would give me a chance to fly and travel. For my entire professional career, I have been facing ever new challenges, and the word “impossible” is for me the greatest motivation. I joined Senator in September 2016.

I joined Senator Meetings & Incentives in March 2017 as the company’s representative in Poland. I studied marketing and management at university and have over 20 years of experience in MICE, having begun working in the field while still a student. I gained most of my experience in Poland, but have also worked abroad (especially France, USA and Germany). I love working on diverse projects – such as tours, events and conferences – and organising everything from A to Z! I always do my best to fulfil my clients’ most demanding wishes. Apart from working, I love spending time with my family and friends, visiting new places, and going to the theatre and the cinema. I am interested in sustainable fashion, eco-friendly products and health food.
