Destination: Cancún, Quintana Roo, Mexico

A luxury getaway to Cancún, Mexico was offered as a family-friendly incentive destination for top sales members and their guests. 255 attendees were shuttled to a beachside, all-inclusive resort where specialty cocktails (and mocktails for the kiddos) greeted them upon arrival and a local Mariachi band welcomed them to a poolside reception. For personalized service, we provided a hospitality desk for guests to be whisked away to enjoy daily offsite excursions like caving, shopping, the ruins of Tulum, deep sea fishing, Mexican food tours, and ziplining in the jungle canopy. Sun-kissed and rejuvenated, the program culminated with an onsite Farewell Reception where guests danced the night away to the sounds of a local DJ.
