Jim Ruszala, senior director of marketing at Maritz Travel, will present two sessions at the upcoming IMEX 2013 in Frankfurt, Germany on May 21-23. The sessions will provide insight on designing effective incentive travel programs that create exceptional event experiences for participants.
Incentive Travel Participants Motivated By Destination Choice
According to a recent study on 13 international destinations, destination plays a strong role in creating and sustaining motivational value among incentive travel participants. The study, conducted by Maritz Travel, indicates that visiting new destinations or destinations that seem otherwise unattainable is the overall key driver of participants. In addition, the study revealed how demographics – parenting status and gender – influenced incentive travel preferences.
Improved Incentive Programs Engage and Motivate Financial Services Agents
Financial services agents want to be rewarded and recognized. According to a recent study conducted by LIMRA, an association for the financial services and insurance industries, and Maritz, a sales and marketing company including Maritz Travel, Maritz Motivation Solutions and Maritz Research, 83 percent of financial and insurance sales representatives attribute some portion of their efforts to reward and recognition, which demonstrates the overall, positive impact of reward and recognition.
