‘Beat the success of the 2016 sales incentive’ – At Onyx they love challenges like this and they love working on bespoke events. The client was looking for a big change up for the 2017 sales incentive, he had 19 people who had achieved their targets and he really wanted to give them an experience that they could not do by themselves.
Onyx came up with the concept of getting the delegates to arrive at an airport without knowing where they were going or what they were going to do. Onyx hand selected a stunning French Château just outside of Rennes, it had 22 bespoke bedrooms, a castle and swimming pool in the grounds. Onyx put together all the logistics, flight management and transport management for the event.
Wanting to add a bit of culture to the event Onyx researched the area and found a small little town called La Gacilly, just 10 minutes away from the Château. Each year the small town hosts a Photo Festival, which is now the largest open-air Photo Festival in France. The photos are taken from the greatest photographers from both the world of art and the world of photo journalism.
After they had finished in La Gacilly, all the delegates were then transferred to the Château where they enjoyed the grounds, swimming pool and had a go at archery. Onyx organized a French catering company to put on a al fresco dinning experience for the delegates by the pool, these included meat sharing platters, cheese fondues and apple tart!
The end goal was reached, the delegates had a life experience that they could not create by themselves, the anticipation of arriving at an Airport without know where they were going, and then being able to relaxed in a stunning Château! Bring on 2018!
