My Top 10 Meeting and Incentive Destinations

What comes to mind when you think of meeting and incentive destinations? Most meeting and event planners go right to the places they always use….New York, Chicago, Las Vegas, San Francisco, London.

Many meeting and incentive planners can save money and add a unique spin to their events by choosing destinations that are fresh for attendees, have a wealth of meeting space, fun activities and are, for the most part, cheaper than their larger cousins.

Attendees love locations like these because they are places that they have never been, meeting planners love them because they offer everything they expect in a destination.

Here are my top 10 meeting/incentive destinations as of today and in no particular order (this could change tomorrow)……

1. Austin, TX
2. Northern Ireland
3. Costa Rica
4. Dominican Republic
5. Whistler, BC
6. Park City, UT
7. Lisbon, Portugal
8. Mexico City, Mexico
9. Halifax, Nova Scotia
10. Albuquerque/Santa Fe, NM

So, if you want to try something new, pick one of these and hit Google, you are sure to find one that fits the bill for your next meeting or incentive.
