Our Favorite New Incentive Hotels for 2022
Fantastic incentive hotels and resorts have opened or completed their renovation this year, which creates new opportunities for us to engage audiences to reach their performance goals or attend professional development events. We are especially excited for the following incentive properties that we’ll be featuring for 2020 programs as they are located in enticing destinations and are well-positioned for serving group incentive travel programs.
Travel Agency or Incentive Travel Company?
Travel agencies excel with individual vacationers and groups of less than 10. Hiring an incentive travel company, like Brightspot, allows you to accommodate incentive groups rewarding 10 or more, which is typically the case for most incentive travel programs.
Travel agencies focus on individual leisure and transient business travelers. One reservation at a time is their standard approach. They have a transactional focus — reserving airline, hotel, rental car, train, vacation packages, and even vacation home rentals – as fast as they can to move to the next transaction.
You need an incentive travel company that takes the big picture into account at all times to ensure your program operates smoothly and relieves the fears and hidden costs of organizing an incentive trip.
