Coming in at No1 is:
The Greek Islands
Is there anywhere more popular than the Greek islands right now? Cool, laid back and breathtaking, if you’re trying to maximize your content on your next Influencer trip or brand experience, the islands have it all.
Bit of a schlep we hear you say?
Not so anymore-Etihad, British Airways, and Saudia added new routes to various Greek islands in 2023, plus the 2022 launch of Cycladic, the first inter-island airline, means it’s easier than ever to get there. Hotel business is booming. Santo Mine, a 37-suite luxury resort will be this years’ newest addition.
On Mykonos, super slick boutique hotel Kalesma is a must see and will launch its spa for the 2024 season, complete with cryotherapy area.
And watch out-if you’re wanting to go uber luxe to go all out for your event, the 5-star 80-acre Gunari Resort will open on Folegandros next May.
Upstate New York
As a London based event agency, we can be a bit blasé about city escapes, but this is not what you think. A 3-5 hours from NYC, Upstate is literally the best place to travel if you’re willing to go further afield for rustic lodgings, winter adventures, and exceptional stargazing. Instagrammable, breathtaking and nature driven, this one it lends itself to a sales incentive because it’s packed with activity options, perfect for creating memorable moments for your team, making sure they’re super motivated by the team they get back to the office.
Check out Wildflower Farms Auberge Resorts a bucolic escape in the shadow of the stunning Shawangunk Mountains. If a wellness escape suits your staff engagement objectives look no further than the infamous “The Ranch” chain, set to open a property here very soon.
These are just some of the reasons the region has gone from being a New Yorker-favorite to a top draw for travelers from further afield.
Budapest celebrates its 150th birthday in 2024 and is making a well-deserved name for itself. Packed with old-meets-new charm with iconic historical attractions alongside contemporary hotels, venues and new attractions like the edgy House of Music, Budapest is alive with creativity. The nightlife is fantastic with the ruin bars district a cool showcase of how the city has come back with a bang after the hardships of Communism.
Our favorites property is the W Budapest-previously a palace now an art deco hotel boasting cutting edge design, eclectic gastronomy, 151 stylish guest rooms and suites, including one” Extreme WOW” suite.
We like this destination at Four Corners-it’s unexpected, cool and it hasn’t been done a million times plus it’s close enough and enticing enough now to make for a great conference destination or product launch live event.
