The Fun Issue - My Dream Event

    Cover Story | December 2016/January 2017


    “I would love to do an event in a castle in Europe. I want a unconventional and personalised event tailored specifically to the needs of my group that can really engage my participants. If agents can cater to leisure travellers this way, so can event planners for corporates. – Daisy Widiari, regional travel buyer Asia Pacific, Dupont Agricultural Products Indonesia

    “I would head to the Cayman Islands or (take my group for) a winter holiday to the US. Actually, we are having an incentive trip for about 12 of our top executives to Aruba this year at the Hilton Aruba Caribbean Resort & Casino, so it will be hard to top that. Vinitee Mishra, manager global travel, Utopia Global

    “An event in Finland feels like a dream for us. We will be able to carry out product launches and events in exotic and creative settings such as in a life-size snow globe and even get Santa Claus to be our special guest. – Amor Gilos, manager of global procurement, Convergys

    “I always wonder what we can do better to please these souls who work their guts out for the company and rejoice in everything it achieves.

    If I had a magic wand in hand, I would have our hardworking and fun-loving folks be rewarded with overseas incentive trips instead of domestic ones.

    I would love for Australia to be the next destination. (Attractions), airlines and events teams would entertain them and ensure they have the best.
    – Geetha Arekal, regional travel head, APAC, Unilever Industries



    “The Swiss Alps provides such a memorable and scenic background for any event. We can execute luxurious gala dinners and events, and pamper our staff to make them feel like VIPs. – Shekhar Gupta, regional manager, indirect procurement, NXP Semiconductors
