Like any of your incentive travel groups, you want your Scotland guests to have a wonderful experience that leaves them rejuvenated, relaxed and motivated. Make sure this happens at your Scottish incentive destination by asking your DMC for these four essential things in your incentive program...
1. Countryside & city chic
With such beautiful and dramatic countryside it would be a real shame if you missed Scotland’s true beauty! Equally it’s would be terrible if you missed out of the culture, heritage and vibrancy of Scotland’s cities, particularly Edinburgh and Glasgow.
The answer is to ask your Scottish DMC for a mixture of city and country – the best mix for a Scotland incentive travel group.
Your DMC should be able to give you a good balance of the two – despite your budget – that includes activities, experiences and social programs that are suitable for your group.
For example, you could arrive into Edinburgh on day one and travel to Perthshire, where in the afternoon your group would participate in interactive Scottish experiences and field sports, before having a rustic Scottish feast.
Day two could be travel back to Edinburgh, followed by lunch in the city, a city tour, or heritage & cultural experience.
The final evening would be spend at a 16th century country mansion, set on the outskirts of the city...the perfect balance of country and city experiences!
2. Passionate & emotional heritage experiences
Many travellers have been around the globe in exotic locations with rich heritage and culture – and many have also been to Scotland!
To give your group a true experience of the real heritage of Scotland, your DMC needs to be able to get creative and ignite the true passion and emotion that oozes from Scottish character, into the hearts and minds of the group!
It’s no easy task especially if there is a language barrier.
A trip to Edinburgh Castle, a tour of the Old Town or an address to the haggis is great, but you need to inject spirit and emotion into these activities in order to take them to a new level of experience.
How can your DMC do this? It sounds predictable, but thinking out of the box is the key to this one! For example, whisky tasting with true highlanders in a castle ruin, or a personal address to the haggis, involving the groups VIPs!
