Incentive Trip – Recruitment

Event Production by Make Happen

Our client was a recruitment company, looking to design an incentive, where it’s top managers globally could enjoy a 4-day reward.

The brief for the incentive was to find a unique/wow destination, with great flights & transfers, and excellent hotels/restaurants/activities. Importantly, to help the team feel rewarded and spend quality time together, our client wanted a destination that had good experiences (outdoor and indoor activities) and an excellent hotel.


We worked with the client to propose 3 destination options that had great flight & transfer options, with outbound flights early Monday morning, and return flights late Thursday evening.

Our proposal centred around the South of France (Nice, Monaco & Cannes). We helped our client create a Nice based programme with day trips to nearby regions to ensure as many authentic activities and guest experiences as possible.

Day 1 consisted of flight arrivals, transfers and a social dinner/cocktails/music. On day 2, the group took part in a ‘welcome team-building’ day around Nice, which was carefully designed to let the group enjoy themselves individually but also help them bond as a team. Day 2 activities included driving vintage cars, visiting a vineyard, food market tour through Nice Old Town and a private picnic lunch in a vineyard. On the evening of day 2, we also organised a special dinner, at a rooftop restaurant in Nice Old Town.

On the 3rd day, the group took a short train to Cannes for a day of exploring the beaches. The group had a more relaxed day shopping, drinks, sightseeing & culture. We organised authentic tours of Cannes for the group and a sea-front lunch, where the group where taught how to cook seafood dishes by a professional chef. On the evening of day 3, we organised a private transfer to Monaco for an evening of elegant cocktails and high-end dining.

The 4th day was the departure day for the group, focusing on local experiences and leisure time before their airport transfers and departures.


A unique guest experience that ensured a close collaboration to create a high energy, engaging and rewarding incentive trip. An intimate gathering of recruitment managers that felt that everything was created especially for them, conversations started, connections and memories were made, selfies were taken, and motivation was gained. Helping our client successful deliver another incentive that not only their guests loved but created value and ROI for them.
