UK meetings and Incentives are about to return. But just like everything else post-pandemic, events will undoubtedly be reimagined for a new normal. Many industries are facing new economic challenges, global travel is expected to recover very slowly and cautiously, but the fact remains, incentives make businesses better. So, rather than being a potential cost saving for companies to bank, incentives should be a key component to drive a V-shaped recovery for any businesses, encouraging the best performance from employees and hacking into epic sales and business growth. Only the players with the best and most current tool will succeed as Incentives return, so tool up with SITEGB.
