Talk to Us About Your 2018 Incentive Travel Plans

1. Las Vegas

Las Vegas is still the biggest, brashest and hottest incentive destination on the planet. The bright lights, excess and ‘Entertainment Capital of the World’ tag is all part of an exceptional incentive offering, including some of the world's best-known hotels and restaurants, electrifying nightlife and world-class entertainment.

Vegas has so much to offer it can be hard to know where to start – let us help.

2. New York City

The city that never sleeps has it all – iconic sights (the Empire State Building, Central Park, Fifth Avenue), unique experiences like powerboat rides on the Hudson, dinner in a Wall Street bank vault and easy, regular connections to and from the UK.

Everyone should visit New York at least once – make 2018 the year it’s your group’s turn.

3. San Francisco

San Francisco is the buzzing heart of the Golden State. The city is one of the hottest destinations for incentive groups thanks to experiences including a private reception on Alcatraz Island, bike tours with unforgettable rides across the Golden Gate Bridge, a drive out to Napa Valley for wine tasting, or drinks and dinner aboard San Fran’s historic cable car.

4. Mexico

Splashed across recent Lonely Planet and National Geographic ‘best destinations’ lists, Mexico is a destination finally getting the attention it deserves.

Go snorkelling in Cancun, flyboarding in Puerto Vallarta, or take a guided hike ending with a swim in the breath-taking Hierve el Agua Waterfalls. Later, treat your group to a night soaking up the unique atmosphere of the Lucha Libre – masks optional.

 5. Florence

Florence is an enchanting and accessible city dripping with art, culture and boutiques.

Explore the rolling hills on a 4x4 safari, then book a trip up the Piazzale Michelangelo or the Duomo for unique views.  Later, catch a concert by candlelight or indulge in world-famous Tuscan hospitality with wine-tasting or dinner at one of seven Michelin-starred restaurants.

6. Ibiza

Ibiza incentives are legendary, buzzing events that make the most of this vibrant, youthful island’s beautiful hotels, white sand beaches, legendary clubs and wall-to-wall sunshine.

With the increase of millennials in the workforce and the need to engage and reward top young talent, Ibiza is firmly staking its claim as one of the world’s hottest incentive destinations for younger groups.

See our ‘Spotlight on… Ibiza Incentives’ for some ideas.

7. Cape Town

Surrounded by dramatic coastline and the unmistakable backdrop of Table Mountain, Cape Town’s relaxed atmosphere and positive, friendly attitude assure its place in hottest incentive destination lists year in, year out.

With sprawling vineyards on the doorstep, a wealth of top hotels, easy access and an eye-wateringly good outdoors offering, it's easy to see why it’s so popular.

8. Hong Kong

Hong Kong has been a world-class incentive destination for over 30 years, and it offers legendary activities - from a drinks reception at the top of Victoria Peak to the Hong Kong Sevens, the Hong Kong Open, Happy Valley Racecourse, the Dragon Boat Festival (Tuen Ng) and much more.

9. Dubrovnik

Dubrovnik is stunning, surrounded by islands ideal for exploring by powerboat (or a yacht chartered from the harbour). On dry land opt for a tour of the Old City (familiar to Game of Thrones fans as King’s Landing), then take a cable car up Mount Srđ to enjoy the sunset with cocktails.

Incredible seafood restaurants, beaches and cobbled streets, all less than 2.5hrs from London – ideal for a shorter incentive trip.

10. The UK

Uncertainty around Brexit, the weak pound and security concerns have all contributed to a huge rise in demand for domestic incentives over the last year.

UK incentive travel is a budget-friendly option that minimises risk and time outlay, and can deliver some of the best incentives on the planet.
