Why is New Zealand the best place to take your incentive?
New Zealand is a real surprise. No delegate knows exactly what to expect, and when. There’s such a variety of exclusive activities that incentive planners will have no lack of exciting options to choose from to impress their well-heeled guests.
On top of that, New Zealand’s world-famous hospitality, or manaakitanga, is hard to beat. Our operators go the extra mile to make things special. Delegates arrive as strangers and depart as friends.
Can you give an example of an activity for top achievers?
Take them to the top! Celebrate those who’ve reached the pinnacle of success with a Queenstown awards ceremony unlike any other.
Start with an exhilarating jetboat ride. The jetboat comes to a halt. Call for back-up. Helicopters fly in, each with a senior management team on board to ‘bring their teams to the next level’.
The group takes off on a scenic flight, landing on a pristine mountaintop. Champagne is served to toast the high achievers, alongside a feast of fresh New Zealand salmon, oysters and crayfish.
The CEO gives a speech and hands out awards, making it one cool (literally) top of the world experience that’ll never be forgotten.
What other type of exclusive event could be arranged?
A magical day starting in Auckland. Delegates are driven in luxury cars to a heli-pad and flown to Hobbiton movie set for a private tour and a Hobbit-themed lunch at The Mill House. Helicopters then fly them to Auckland’s Kauri Bay Boomrock, with its beautiful coastal views.
Delegates receive a traditional Māori welcome and are presented with a special pounamu (greenstone), with designs such as a ‘Koru’ which signifies growth, strength and peace.
The CEO will present the awards, then a celebrity chef will deliver a fantastic meal of the best wine, meat, seafood and fresh produce New Zealand has to offer.
Will my hard-to-impress high-end guests be satisfied?
Because New Zealand is small and exclusive, it guarantees a very personalised service. We have great luxury options in terms of accommodation, high quality food and drink choices, complete with attention to detail to make things first-class.
We work with independently validated Qualmark operators and Covid Clean Approved venues to ensure your delegates are in good hands.
We provide destination inspection support so you can personally experience what’s on offer. Book your bespoke familiarisation trip with us today!
