Incentive – Venice

The Brief

For our client this was their second short-haul incentive trip for this specific business unit. They wanted to go to a luxurious destination that would reward their top performing sales staff. They also wanted a new exciting agenda that would top their last trip (Dubrovnik) so we needed to be very creative with our proposal.

Challenges

  • The budget was rather limited for the location chosen – this required Penguins to be very creative with the agenda for the trip
  • With Venice being situated where it is, it was very hard to arrange transfers to and from the airport – this took a total of 5 water taxis – there and back!

Scale

40 guests

Location

Venice, Italy

Solution

This luxurious incentive trip began at the airport as guests were whisked to their prestigious hotel Danieli by a private luxury vaporetta boat. On arrival at their private water dock, the group enjoyed their first taste of exquisite Italian cuisine whilst soaking up the sun and taking in the impressive views of the lagoon from the hotel's terrace. Located directly next to St Marks Square, the couples enjoyed quality time together in arguably the most romantic city in the world. A private Venetian Galleon supper and exclusive palace gala feast with classical musical accompaniment enhanced the atmosphere of this luxurious 5 day trip which was thoroughly enjoyed by all.

Result

"We loved Venice and felt thoroughly spoilt. It was a fantastic hotel in a truly beautiful city. The trip was perfect and felt like a real ‘prize’. It was great to have the opportunity to meet up without the feeling that all of our time was organized. The final evening was magical and I wouldn’t have changed anything. I have been very fortunate to go on the last three Premier trips, all have which have been great and they are a real motivator for me to succeed. I love holidays and travel and appreciate the luxury and the fact that guests can be taken. If I had to pick a favourite I think it would be this one though as Venice is like no other city on earth. Thank you very much, it was really memorable"
