Hands Up Incentives, a two-time winner of the IMEX Commitment to the Community Award and award-winning division of luxury volunteer tourism provider Hands Up Holidays, is finding new ways to give back to the community and the world. Now combining American and Canadian business travel with team-building itineraries in more than 30 destinations around the world, companies can engage in volunteer activities in countries such as China, Belize, Kenya, New Zealand and Bali.
IMEX America, an expo for the travel, meetings and events industry, took place in Las Vegas on Oct. 10–12. There, Hilton announced and launched their new initiative, WowMakers, which will help recognize the hardworking professionals in the hospitality industry.
The program is intended to celebrate the 100,000-plus professionals in the industry by sharing their stories and helping them connect with others in the business—giving them the recognition they deserve.
A recently conducted survey by IMEX concluded that wellbeing is a top priority for meeting professionals. IMEX will offer a series of wellbeing initiatives at IMEX America this year to recognize the wellbeing for meeting professionals.
