With only four months to go before the opening game of the 2014 FIFA World Cup, MEI’s Associate Lucas Lacombe gives advice how to make the most of the event and have a unique Brazilian experience without the headache of  trip planning.

So, 2014 has arrived and the final countdown to the World Cup has started. The December draw has already promised great games in the first stage and FIFA saw record breaking in ticket sales. More than 3.5m tickets have been requested by 199 countries although 80% were bought by Brazilians.

If you haven’t got your pass to what is likely to be one of the greatest football tournaments, don’t panic just yet. MEI Brazilian Associates can help you get prime access with exclusive hospitality suited to your needs – whether you want to go to a single match, follow your team around the country, assist a venue series or enjoy only the final round package.

Yet having the ticket is only part of it and maybe you already have yours. Then comes booking hotels, domestic flights, transport to the venue, leisure and tourism programme. Once again, MEI Brazilian Associates, Lucas Lacombe and Ricardo Demarchi, have thought of everything so you don’t have to worry about the details. Based in Recife and with a strong network in other host cities, they have developed a bespoke Corporate Diplomacy service in which they not only take care of the planning but also greet and accompany you during your stay in Brazil. The staff and personal assistants are multilingual and with an in-depth knowledge of the cities and events.

This has proven to be the right turnkey solution for C-level executives and VIPs willing to have a unique fan experience in Brazil without worrying about anything. Yet it’s also suitable for companies, media agencies and broadcasters sending all their staff, journalists and equipment to Brazil and simply need help with the ground logistics, language and cultural barrier. Indeed Brazilians have their own way of doing things!

So whether your problem for the FIFA World Cup is ticketing, hospitality, planning, logistics or personal assistance, MEI and its associates can deliver tailor-made solutions for you.
