ABOUT INCENTIVE LIVE

Incentive Live 2020 is going digital, with a compelling agenda that makes this event a must-attend for industry professionals. In addition to one-on-one appointments with top incentive destinations, hotels/resorts, cruise lines, DMCs, DMOs, brand name merchandise, gift cards and tourism offices, Incentive Live presents leading industry experts providing the latest perspective on industry trends and best practices that will help take your incentive programs to the next level, all from the comfort of your home office.

The content-rich agenda features a “deconstructed” version of our Incentive Roundtable focusing on industry disruptors. Other highlights include deep-dive breakouts into topics to help incentive pros boost their business and Meet the Masters, an interactive panel where 2020 Motivation Master winners will share insider tips into what makes an award-winning program. Peer-to-peer networking and social events will enhance the experience for buyers and suppliers.
