For a company’s top performers, an incentive trip is a great way to invest in employees and recognize hard work and talent. The challenge in hosting a successful incentive trip often lies in the details – flawless execution, creative event planning, and superb venues and restaurants are a must.
When a client of ours decided to host an international, upscale incentive trip in the Dominican Republic, they needed an event planning expert to help. Complete, end-to-end event services were required to ensure no detail was overlooked and the hotel, travel, excursions, and dinners were unforgettable.
Luckily for our client, our CLI events team had already worked in the Dominican Republic and knew the best options for events and activities.
First, CLI event planning experts needed to find a fabulous resort with efficient airport access and plenty to offer guests. We sourced and booked the air travel, managed event registration, and negotiated the contract with a luxury golf resort on the ocean.
Our client needed an upscale resort that would offer security and the ultimate in international luxury. We secured a beautiful, 7,000-acre golf resort in the Domincan Republic that offered ocean-view golf, exquisite dining, a wide array of excursions, and so much more.
To truly engage guests, our events team shared ideas on creative amenity gifts for the client to provide guests with an extra touch. We creatively brainstormed and delivered themed, creative event amenity gifts such as branded beach totes, towels, and other island necessities. Additionally, guests received classic Dominican Republic souvenir gifts. One item was a hand-painted tray with snacks and drinks to add a level of luxury and local experience for guests.

To give our client’s guests plenty to do during the three-night trip to the Dominican Republic, our event planners sourced, coordinated, and executed only the best in dining and activities.
Some of our excursions included horseback riding, unforgettable snorkeling and a day on a yacht, golf with oceanfront views, skeet shooting, and luxurious beach lounging. The entire program had unique decor items to complete the beach theme.
CLI coordinated an inviting Welcome Reception featuring live entertainment and creative menu items to set the tone of the event. On the final night of the program, our event planners executed an impressive dinner gala event, complete with creative event decor, fine dining service, event production and entertainment, and more.
We at CLI are so pleased to offer clients all types of international incentive trips for any type of budget. Contact us if you are considering a trip to the Dominican Republic or another tropical paradise getaway! We’d love to share our event planning expertise with you.
