The Best-Quarter-Ever Issue!

How is the first quarter of 2018 already over?! We’ve been so busy and excited about all of our new partnerships, when we stopped to take a breath and crunch the numbers, we realized…this quarter was our best on record! You put your trust in us to motivate your participants and that’s what motivates us to be the best incentive advisor and partner we can be. Here’s to an amazing 2018 for our growing, thriving client family!

Our clients told us how they really feel.

Whenever we’re waiting to get our Client Satisfaction Survey results, it’s like being on Dancing with the Stars, waiting to hear the judge’s scores…ugh, the suspense! The survey lets us know if we’re the incentives advisor our clients can count on, and where we could improve. What did we learn from this year’s survey?

Check out the hottest incentive travel destinations!

Spring has sprung, meaning it's almost time for us to start embarking on the exciting incentive travel events we coordinate every year. Why do we do it? Because incentive travel is the best way to build loyalty among your top performers and customers, estimated to return $4 for ever invested. Here are a few of the destinations we highly recommend.
Tahiti & Bora Bora
Pleasant surprises await guests in Bora Bora where luxury meets nature. Enjoy buffet breakfasts mere inches from the ocean, and venture out to the Ecological Center to explore marine wildlife. No matter what kind of travelers tag along, Tahiti has something for everyone. We have connections with the fabulous Le Meridian, so let's talk about taking your VIP performers and customers on an incentive trip!
Switzerland is an all-year-round destination, perfect for any incentive trip attendee. For the adventurous, visit Interlaken for an action-packed kick-bike or mountain cart ride. Or, experience Montreaux’s famous jazz festival in July. We have the hook-up with a Swiss-based event management agency and we can get you a great group travel deal to one of the most beautiful places on Earth!
