​​Puerto Vallarta, your best option to plan an incentive trip

If you run a company, or you’re in charge of overseeing a group, then you know of the importance of keeping your staff and collaborators motivated and recognized by their achievements.

One way to encourage motivation amongst your work team is travel incentive, which has become a part of small and big corporations for a couple of decades now, and in Mexico it has been gaining importance over the last years, where Puerto Vallarta has been positioned as a top destination for travel incentive.

Why are these kinds of trips so relevant?

These trips help collaborators be one with the company’s objectives, are a great way to improve the quality of your company’s processes, and helps your team bond. Not only that, they also build loyalty towards your brand: a trip that’ll forever be cherished and remembered.

And even though during these last two years incentive travel was paused, you’d be surprised to know that when staff that excelled in 2020 were asked if they wanted a monetary incentive, or wait till 2021 to go on an incentive trip, the majority chose to wait for the trip.

Here we share with you interesting related data, according to the Incentive Research Foundation, or IRF :

  • Business partners and collaborators are highly motivated by incentive trips.
  • Companies that reward their employees with non-monetary incentives – such as trips and gift cards – can increase their revenue threefold.
  • The greatest productivity and sales percentages can be observed in companies that reward their employees’ achievements.
  • The best investment a company can make is through travel incentive, whether to reward their sales personnel; as a recognition to collaborators; as appreciation of the trust given by business partners; or to build loyalty amongst clients.

If you’ve been considering the idea of implementing these kinds of trips for you company or business, we let you in 4 reasons that make Puerto Vallarta an irresistible destination to plan an incentive trip:

  1. A trip to fit your needs

Puerto Vallarta will offer you everything you’ll need through its Destination Management Companies or DMCs that specialize in the destination and can help you organize all related to your incentive program, such as places to stay and visit, and everything there is to enjoy in this enchanting destination.

  1. Infrastructure

Puerto Vallarta has a vast offer of hotels with top-notch facilities to carry out conferences and congresses, from convention centers, to meeting rooms and boardrooms. And not only that, certified meeting planners, or CMPs, will be with you all along the way when organizing your incentive program, with tailored recommendations, and the option of planning activities in the facilities focused on team building. You’ll find many options with different prices, whether on an All-Inclusive or European Plan, that’ll match your budget perfectly.

  1. Corporate Social Responsibility

Another interesting option is to plan a trip that generates environmental, social and ecological awareness amongst your team of collaborators, while also contributing to leaving a positive footprint in Puerto Vallarta. From planting trees, supporting sea turtle preservation programs, to embarking together in socio-cultural, tourist and ecotourism activities with projects such as Navegante Urbano, or living exciting adventures while supporting conservation causes such as Jorullo Paradise and Canopy River.
