What are innovative bartenders mixing these days? That’s what Southern Glazer's Wine & Spirits, a leading distributor of beverage alcohol, set out to discover during their coast-to-coast Liquid Insights Tour. Over 111 days, Brian Masilionis, the distributor’s director of national accounts and strategy, led a team of industry-leading mixologists to sample more than 400 drinks in 83 of the hottest restaurants, bars and hotels across the country.

 

Results from the Incentive Research Foundation’s (IRF) 2022 Incentive Travel Destination Preferences & Their Impact on Motivation confirmed that interest in incentive travel as a motivating sales reward is at an all-time high. 91% of 405 survey respondents described group incentive travel as extremely or very motivating compared to 80% last year. Individual incentive travel was rated even higher as a motivational award at 96% versus 84% last year. 

 

Everybody loves to talk about welcoming change. Then change happens, and whew, it’s tough. After the past few years, meetings and events professionals certainly appreciate that feeling, but they’re also feeling energized by so many new ways for attendees to gather.
