This 2008 sales incentive meeting won the 2009 “Best Multiple Day Incentive Event” in the Gala Awards from Special Events Magazine. After Hurricane Omar forced the relocation of this event from Nevis, our team was able to recreate the event and rebook nearly 100 guests to Key Biscayne, FL. The event included three themed dinners, training sessions, full and half day excursions, spa treatments, dine-arounds, and evening room-dropped gifts.
