Dog sledding across the northernmost town in the world

A morning on the Great Barrier Reef

We woke early and met in the reception of the One&Only Hayman Island resort and made our way down to the dock, where the hotel’s yachts sat moored in the sun. Another tremendous surprise from Ovation DMC was awaiting us when we arrived as two helicopters were stationed ready to roar into life.

The last stop before the North Pole: Part 2

The sun rose on Longyearbyen as quickly as my head had hit the pillow the night before. The dogs had definitely worn me out. I opened my curtains to a blinding welcome as the sun reflected off the snow and through my window.

Abu Dhabi Doo!

Was this going to be a good fam?

It was 6.20am, it was early and I was a little tired after only four hours sleep as I arrived at the Etihad desk at Manchester airport, looking out for Julie from Ashfield and Louise from Incentivise. It was at that point I thought to myself th

The last stop before the North Pole: Part 1

Having never been further north than Scotland in my life, I felt slightly unprepared before my first ever trip abroad with C&IT to Longyearbyen, Norway – the northernmost town on the planet.

Is the Dominican Republic ready for incentives?

Whether a Caribbean conference can produce an engaged, focused audience that isn’t clock-watching until its pool time is up for debate, but if you’re looking for an incentive with sunshine and cocktails on tap, then the Dominican Republic’s appeal isn’t only limited to public school teenage runaways.
