"In my own experience we have taken so may off-sites in which the ROI has been multiple times. Travel in India has seen a huge trajectory and now apart from exploring various frontiers geographically, Indian MICE market has started evolving hugely in luxury travel space. While India has seen a few Trade events in the past there has been none dedicated specifically to MICE & Luxury Travel. " Birju Gariba, CEO, Platinum Events

Top corporates have expanded their budget aside to provide incentives to employees, distributors, associates and dealers in bid to keep loyalty and the bottom line result intact. With the growing number of Corporate business and incentive travellers, premium wedding planners seeking new destinations and experiences and the Bollywood outbound tourism potential only beginning to be milked, tourism boards and destination management companies (DMC) are keen to cash in on the tour circuit.

"Incentive trips have a far reaching impact beyond the mere 'incentive' part of it. If that were not the case, companies would have resorted to the simpler expedient of doling out money or gifts. Cash and gifts have a rub off that last a few minutes, whereas as incentive trip leaves a warm glow. Any experienced team leader will concur that team effectiveness goes up significantly following a well- planned and organised incentive trip " Sujan Roy, Head marketing, Tata Motors
