Since 1980, the annual Society for Incentive Travel Excellence (SITE) Crystal Awards Recognition Program — sponsored by IMEX Group — has brought industry acclaim to incentive travel companies. These are organizations that design group travel experiences.
The 2016 awards were presented at the SITE Global Conference, which took place early November in Panama City, Panama. This year seven companies from around the globe were honored for creativity in program design, marketing, corporate social responsibility and, most importantly, business results. The events showcase the best destinations that have advanced client values and brands, and whose programs have given generously to local communities, while achieving business goals such as increased sales, higher employee engagement, and greater loyalty.
“The Crystal Awards not only recognize the outstanding organizations that win them,” said Rajeev Kohli, CIS, SITE president and joint managing director, Creative Travel Pvt. Ltd., New Delhi, India, “but also showcase innovative ways planners can make the ordinary extraordinary to maximize human potential and achieve tangible business results. Planning an incentive program is an art. These winning programs are great examples of how, through thoughtful planning and creative program design, you can connect with people emotionally and motivate higher levels of performance.”
