M&IT incentive summit: Rebuilding travel
When and how will the incentive travel industry recover? Some have predicted that COVID-19 has changed the way people travel and how companies approach incentives. Anxieties around bookings, client confidence and the lack of a coordinated response among countries and governments mean the true future of the industry is unknown.
M&IT has curated this two-hour session to help develop a recovery plan for planners, destination management companies, tourism boards and other players with guidance to successfully restart their incentive travel plans.
The session will be split into three parts:
Part one: State of the incentive travel industry - what can be concluded from research?
Part two: Breakout sessions covering the key areas:
Trip replacements: Can trips be replaced? If so, what are they being replaced with? How efficient are they from a client and employee perspective?
Safety and risk mitigation: Key factors to select a destination and build an itinerary. Are ‘private solutions’ the way forward?
Experiences: How to create meaningful experiences while factoring in key issues such as sustainability and corporate social responsibility.
Lessons learnt and plans: Key learnings since the beginning of the pandemic and how this will impact plans moving forward.
Part three: Case study of a trip planned in the last 18 months.
