Stephanie Hall, Group Director of Sales & Marketing at the Exclusive Collection gives us her thoughts on a new narrative for hotels and venues.
The Coronavirus pandemic has changed all of our worlds, and not just in the short-term. Outside of healthcare—where heroes dressed in gowns are battling on the front lines—few industries have been hit like travel and within that I include Incentive Travel, where staff are often rewarded for their efforts & successes with a well-earned ‘money can’t buy’ experience somewhere in the world.
It's no surprise that current events have brought incentive travel to a screeching halt. Programs involving all-inclusive resort stays, once-in-a-lifetime experiences and whistle stop weekends continue to postpone. But there are still ways to digitally deliver incentives to top performers, both staff & customers.
Virtual events aren’t just live events being streamed to remote audiences – they are a unique experience specifically designed to allow remote presenters to effectively deliver their messages to virtual attendees.
Since the start of lockdown, the swing to virtual events has been one of the few positive news stories for our industry.
