Wham, bam thank you Fam!

“I remember one fam where we had to get up for a boat transfer in the pitch black at 7am – and the water was so choppy it ended up with everyone on the trip either shrieking, crying or puking.”

Here at M&IT we’ve just spent a good half hour in the office recounting our fam trip horror stories. Everyone has a nightmare tale to tell; whether it’s a three-day booze-a-thon with a bunch of industry mates, or a packed itinerary that left you hating the very place that you were there to see – fam trips can, and do, go wrong for a wide variety of reasons. Wrong people, wrong places, wrong activities = a very bad trip.

We’re covering the topic in the upcoming November issue of M&IT – and there’s still time for you to get involved. We want to know what you’re looking for in a fam trip – and what you think the key elements are in making fams a success.

And of course, we want you to illustrate your point with your own anecdotes.

Fams are at a real turning point at the moment, with people weighing in from all sides on who should go on them and what their purpose is. So that’s why we’re giving you your chance to stick your oar in on the future of fam trips.

Get in touch on editorial@cat-publications.com and we’ll let you know exactly what we’re looking for.
