Memorable incentive trips motivate top performance by rewarding attendees with once-in-a-lifetime experiences. Senior program manager, Amy McCollum shares ideas for “wowing” travel winners.

Upgrade everything

High achievers deserve first-class treatment. Choose upscale accommodations, high-end food and beverage selections, elegant décor and special gifts. A celebratory theme elevates communications, too.

Less purpose, more pleasure

Unlike business meetings, incentive trips lean more toward attendee-focused recreation and entertainment. Networking events, hands-on experiences and give-back activities are great, and don’t forget blocks of free time – they’ve earned it.

Cater to desires

Globe-trotting thrill seekers love international sites and physical adventures while low-key crowds want carefree ways to unwind and recharge. Find out what attendees value and plan accordingly.

Fresh destinations

Many attendees may be well traveled. Rock their travel world by staying up-to-date on destination trends such as new resorts, green travel programs and exotic locations.

Smoother logistics

To eliminate issues, research flight times, customs restrictions, travel alerts and other logistical elements during your planning phase.
