DUBROVNIK CM RETREAT

Our 2019 TiE Global CM Retreat will be held in Dubrovnik, Croatia from July 4th - 7th, 2019. We invite all Charter Members of TiE to this splendid 4-day Event, which has now become an established traditional of TiE and our passionate CM community. 

Dubrovnik is a city in southern Croatia fronting the Adriatic Sea. It's known for its distinctive Old Town, the historic part of the city surrounded by the Walls of Dubrovnik, massive stone walls completed in the 16th century. Its well-preserved buildings range from baroque St. Blaise Church to Renaissance Sponza Palace and Gothic Rector’s Palace. 

Many of the historic buildings and monuments in Dubrovnik are situated along the Stradun ( the main street of the City), because of which it is a popular esplanade for tourists. The 300 metres long limestone-paved Stradun is lined with shops and restaurants. 

Dubrovnik has famously served as the filming location for the popular TV show - Game of Thrones, thanks to it's stunning natural beauty and Old World charm.

TiE Global Retreat attendees will stay at the RIXOS LIBERTAS HOTEL This 5-star hotel is a 15-minute walk away from Dubrovnik's Old Town and minutes from the beach. It features a large spa area with a year-round indoor pool and seasonal outdoor pools offering panoramic sea views. The 2-story spa center features a Turkish bath, an indoor and an outdoor pool, as well as numerous rejuvenating treatment areas. For fun and entertainment, Rixos Libertas offers a casino.

The Annual TiE Global CM Retreat facilitates business and social networking with the TiE CM network of 3,000 TiE charter members from around the globe. The CM Retreat is an exclusive Event, meant for TiE Charter Members and their families, where TiE CMs meet old friends, discuss the charter of TiE, and foster closer ties within the TiE CM community. There will be several activities planned for CMs and their families; including Networking mixers, Inspirational speaker sessions, Sightseeing tours and Formal Awards & Gala Night ceremony celebrating excellence at TiE Chapters around the world.

Details of the Full Day Tours

Short stop at town of Ston, famous of salt plans which are in use from the roman time and its 5.5 km long city walls, the longest walls of Europe. Head to Pelješac peninsula, famous for wine production. We'll visit Korta Katarina wine cellar followed by the wine tasting session. Korta Katarina a particular favorite for wine tasting. 
Light lunch consisting of fresh vegetables prepared on dalmatian style will be served in one of the best restaurants in the region, situated in the medieval castle on the coast in Mali Ston. 


  • Island Hopping Tour - Boat tour of Elaphite islands


The Elaphiti islands

The Elaphiti islands is a small archipelago consisting of several islands stretching northwest of Dubrovnik, in the Adriatic sea. The name comes from the Ancient Greek word for deer , which used to inhabit the islands in large numbers. 

We will explore the Elaphiti islands, which were a summer residence of nobility and remain a local favorite. Visit the three biggest islands of the archipelago Kolocep, Šipan and Lopud.

These precious islands are a natural wonder – but they are also so much more. This boat tour will show you the two most beautiful islands – Lopud and Sipan. You can go for a swim in a crystal clear sea, wonder around in the shade of Mediterranean vegetation, explore interesting small villages or simply take a journey through the local cuisine, it’s up to you! This is a perfect place to get away from busy towns and the hustle and bustle of life since there are no vehicles at all on two of them, and only a few on the third. The highlight of the tour is the largest of the islands – Sipan. Artefacts discovered here show that this island was already inhabited in the time of the Romans. The best part will follow at the island of Lopud where you will have time to spend your free time on the sandy beaches and enjoy in crystal blue sea. 

  • Rustic Tour - Visit to Konavle art house, seaside town of Cavtat and Honeybee farm

Konavle, the southernmost area of Dubrovnik, is a fertile valley with olive trees and wineries and which is enclosed by the mountains of Bosnia Herzegovina, Montenegro and the Konavle cliffs at the seaside. During centuries the Konavle region kept his outstanding qualities: its living traditions, customs, handicrafts, economy, folklore, beautiful folk costumes and the hospitality of the people. On your way you will pass through many authentic villages

Our last stop will be  the oldest olive mill in the region owned by the Sapro family. You will have the opportunity to taste their homemade olive oil, homemade bread, cheese, vegetables. You will also learn of how the olive oil was produced in the traditional way.
