Are you currently considering any new destinations for incentive programs?


"We definitely will be proposing new destinations to clients as a result of my participation in Trailblazers [the invitation-only trade show for incentive planners]. The suppliers -- from Canada, Denmark, Great Britain, Ireland, Monaco and Switzerland -- were all quite helpful in providing insights into cost-effective ways to promote their destinations."

"There are several new areas we've investigated and booked for clients. They include Croatia, a charter cruise on the Black Sea, and we have a high-tech company going to Malta this year and next year to Tenerife in the Canary Islands."

"Panama. It appeals to our customers who are looking to do something unique and different with an island feel. The destination offers great value and is perfect for groups of 200 to 250."
