Rapid changes in technology have revolutionized how we all communicate - and when it comes to incentive travel, there's no exception. Today's technologies have introduced dozens of new ways to engage and connect with incentive travel participants before, during, and after an event. Whether you're looking to amplify an event through social media engagement, capture "wow moments" through photos, or collect data after a trip, technology is a critical tool for engaging with and learning more about your participants.
Kurt Paben, Past-President of the SITE Foundation Board of Trustees and President, Channel and Employee Loyalty for Aimia Inc. U.S., shares how technology and data can be used to maximize engagement. Mobile apps, social media, photo-sharing and more offer opportunities to personalize the incentive travel experience. Learn what tools are available and how to maximize them to connect with and motivate participants.
