Those looking for a glimpse into Prince’s private world are in luck—his family and special administrator for his estate are opening up the doors to his Chanhassen home Paisley Park for public tours on Oct. 6, 2016.

Millions of fans will be able to tour the 65,000-square-foot home, which will include a look into the Minnesota legend’s recording studio, rehearsal rooms, video editing suites, private NPG Music Club and concert hall where he rehearsed for tours and concert events.

The tour will also include memorabilia from Prince’s life such as special awards, instruments, artwork and clothing.

"The new Paisley Park museum will offer fans a unique experience, an exhibition like no other, as Prince would have wanted it," according to the official statement by Prince's siblings. "Most important, the museum will display Prince's genius, honor his legacy, and carry forward his strong sense of family and community."

Prince will also be remembered in a family tribute concert on Oct. 31, 2016 at U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis. Additional information on concert ticket sales will be forthcoming.

Tickets for the tour went on sale on Aug. 26 at 2 p.m.

"Opening Paisley Park is something that Prince always wanted to do and was actively working on," says Tyka Nelson, Prince's sister. "Only a few hundred people have had the rare opportunity to tour the estate during his lifetime. Now, fans from around the world will be able to experience Prince's world for the first time as we open the doors to this incredible place."

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. 

 

The corporate world spends an estimated $242 billion on gifts for employees and customers, according to Forbes. Wouldn’t it be rewarding if the purchasing and giving of these types of gifts offered meaningful work for veterans, women, and their children?
