Incentives & Conferences

For many years, travel has been one of the most powerful incentives to improve performance across a broad section of commerce and industry. Travel rewards, whether individual or group, are traditionally accepted as the best way of motivating most people towards special objectives and can be designed to suit any budget.

SPECIALISED TRAVEL’s Meetings, Incentives, Conferences & Exhibitions Department has been professionally managed by Recognition & Reward and Jackson Incentive Marketing since 1986.

Graham Jackson, past President of AIA, ensured the effective techniques, measurement and marketing of performances for non-cash rewards, while Jeff Rainsford, past Director of Education of AIA, developed the global contacts for the department’s professional networking.

Both Graham and Jeff have the experience and expertise to develop a range of individual and group travel incentive programs administered by Specialised Travel.

Our marketing department has developed a successful working relationship with over fifty experienced Destination Management Companies worldwide specialising in unique incentive travel experiences.

As a past Board Members of the Australian Incentive Association (AIA) and a regular attendee at their high profile conferences, it places our personnel in direct contact with the leading suppliers in the Asia-Pacific region. Attendance at IMEX and EIBTM in Europe and AIME in Melbourne, provides a global network of the key travel operators. An aspect that has proven to be of immense benefit when planning and conducting Incentive Travel Programs to destinations throughout the world.

Our proven ability in Conference Management can add a 'tax effective' Education and Training component, along with Team Building Activities to the Program.
