With business events and incentives bouncing back strongly – Tourism Australia research shows over 80 per cent of domestic and international business decision makers are already planning events – we are tipping the Northern Territory and New Zealand as key business incentives destinations for 2023 and beyond. Why? They offer truly unique, meaningful experiences that are remote yet accessible.
And with research showing time and again the benefits of incentive travel to motivate and engage your people, connect and inspire, increase loyalty and dedication, build culture, boost creativity and retain top performers – the question to ask is not whether or not to run an incentive travel program, but where to take your people?
Locations that pair unique, meaningful discovery with confidence and safety.
The most motivating programs – that ignite people to earn a place on the incentive trip, cement relationships and loyalty – include activities you simply can’t buy unless you’re part of a specially crafted group experience. But the locations for incentive travel need to also deliver accessibility, certainty, safety and security for your people.
This is why the Northern Territory and New Zealand are some of our favourite incentive travel destinations, and why we have put together showcase videos of Australia’s Red Centre, Top End, plus Queenstown and Rotorua in New Zealand to help you plan immersive incentive experiences, WATCH HERE.
Imagine.. a helicopter excursion over a gorge or glacier, landing on a secluded and unreachable river for a nature-to-plate dining experience where guests are involved in catching and cooking some of the finest, freshest produce in the world.
Together uncovering the beauty of sparse dessert or waterfalls and wilderness on foot.
Experiencing traditional culture with tailored indigenous activities in remote waterholes, gaining firsthand insights and learning from their stories.
But don’t just take our word for it…
We have been organising incentive trips around the world for over 20 years, and the trips we organise to Australia’s Red Centre and New Zealand receive rave reviews time and again. Our clients report incredible feedback from all team members on these trips, a huge boost in motivation and morale, and an overall strengthening of culture and relationships. Not to mention strong boosts in productivity and year-end results.
Hearing the feedback from both our clients and the participants of these programs really makes our work meaningful, in their words: “An incredibly empowering experience” “I feel closer to my colleagues and more connected to my company than ever” “I thought I’d seen Australia and New Zealand, but never like this. It was truly an other-world experience, so inspiring”.
