Global Meeting & Incentive Planning Summit
October 21 – 22, 2019

Kimpton Hotel Palomar, Chicago

Designed to help planners navigate the complexity of planning global meetings and incentive trips.

Highlights include:

Minimizing Risk in International Travel—Kevin Coffey 

Actionable security strategies and low-cost solutions to include in your protocols for ensuring the safety of your international travelers.

Transformational Incentive Travel—Padraic Gilligan

In part due to changing demographics, we are no longer just in the business of designing meetings and incentive trips, we are in the business of changing lives. Gilligan will define this new approach to incentive travel and how to create trips that are powerful and life-altering experiences.

Incentive Travel Trends Panel & Discussion

Experts from the top incentive companies—including Rhonda Brewer of BCD Meetings & Events and Margaret Foley-Easter of Creative Group—will report on the impact of the latest trends—including the strong economy, shifting C-suite goals and the personalization of awards—on incentive programs. This will be followed by roundtables focused on the challenges faced by audience members, who will be polled in advance.
