India’s newest Destination Management Company (DMC) – Destinos India was recognised by the Society for Incentive Travel Excellence (SITE) with a Crystal Award for Best Destination-Based Incentive Travel Program at the Crystal Awards Recognition Ceremony held during SITE Global Conference 2019 in Bangkok, Thailand.
“As the Society for Incentive Travel Excellence it’s only fitting that we have our own reward and recognition program to highlight excellence in incentive travel. The Crystal Awards program is a long-standing SITE tradition, part of our association since 1980 and a hotly contested, much anticipated annual event. It confers the highest honour in our industry to incentive travel professionals who have clearly demonstrated how incentive travel leads to business results,” commented Annamaria Ruffini, SITE President 2018.
Destinos India’s client’s key objective was to reward extraordinary workplace performance with an extraordinary travel experience, providing impetus for the following year’s performance. Destinos India selected the crown of “Incredible India” – Delhi, Agra and Jaipur – as the triple-city destination to provide the experience of a lifetime for 140 qualifiers from all over the world
With impeccable research and a deep understanding of the client’s key objectives, Destinos India, their regional offices, hotels and local vendors crafted the quintessential destination-based experiential travel program, with qualifiers undertaking a true sensory deep dive that included unique activities such as a turban tying competition, camel polo and elephant feeding.
“Right after our inception as a DMC, this was the very first dream project to put our heart and soul in to deliver an incredible incentive voyage. With detailed research, offbeat vision, sagacity, prevision, dedication and micromanagement, backed by hard work by our experienced, professional and enthusiastic team, we transformed all possible challenges to opportunities and presented an incentive journey to cherish for a lifetime. This award becomes even more special and important for us as we have got it in the very first year of our existence,” commented Sanjay Malhotra, Director, Destinos India.
“It is a special honour to be recognised with our first SITE Crystal Award within the very first year since inception. We feel privileged and grateful to our client for their immense trust and continued belief in us for their upcoming incentive programs. This achievement is solely dedicated to the team – their dedication, enthusiasm and insight are truly inspiring,” added Randhir Brar, Director, Destinos India.
