October 24, 2015
Inspiration India in association with Impact Organization was declared a 2015 SITE Crystal Award Winner in the category ‘Best Destination-Based Experiential Travel Program’. The announcement was made at the SITE Crystal Award Luncheon during the SITE Global Conference in New Delhi, India.
The Curry & Tea Incentive – A unique travel experience covering two countries, was a motivational trip handled by Inspiration India and promoted by Impact Organization, Melbourne for pharmacy owners from Australia. The requirement was a unique adventure, which could not be replicated. It was an upmarket holiday in India and Sri Lanka, with educational seminars conducted by international motivational speakers.
India and Sri Lanka are two nations that are rich in historic and religious traditions. Inspiration India delivered a luxurious adventure replete with culinary experiences, cultural exposures and local entertainment, which were the perfect ingredients for a very successful incentive event.
In India, the journey was woven around the luxurious Maharajas’ Express train ride and a tented campsite on the sand dunes of Rajasthan, creating a unique opportunity for participative events. A royal elephant polo match against the backdrop of the palatial City Palace, camel safaris and camel races were some of the events. Guests were also involved in a meaningful and sustainable CSR activity in a visit to Bandhwari village on the outskirts of Gurgaon, where Incentive Foundation, the CSR division of Inspiration India runs a project catering to health, women’s empowerment and girls’ education.
In Sri Lanka, the experience ranged from tea tasting, educational sessions, an immersion into Buddhism, to a ride on the historic Viceroy Train. As part of a wildlife initiative, guests released turtle hatchlings into the sea from the local hatchery, giving the young ones a head start to a new life. These were some of the emotional experiences that appealed to the participants.
The purpose of the Curry & Tea Incentive was to create bespoke, unique experiences, exciting adventure activities and a Corporate Social Responsibility angle, which won Inspiration India, their second SITE Crystal Award
