C&IT held its fourth Incentives Retreat for senior event planners, luxury venues and emerging destinations at Chewton Glen Hotel & Spa. 

For two days, attendees enjoyed content sessions about the hot trends in incentive travel, one-to-one meetings, group activities and festive entertainment, including music by roaming three-piece The Charlalas. 

"The growth of our event coincides with the growth in the demand for incentives," said C&IT editor, Calum Di Lieto in his welcome speech.  

"This area of business events is the fastest-growing part of the MICE acronym. This is due to more and more businesses recognising the value of rewarding and retaining talent. On the face of it, incentive travel looks like a lot of fun, but the purpose behind it is business-critical."

Speakers included Dr Chadden Hunter, producer-director at BBC Natural History Unit, who revealed the challenges of making BBC’s Frozen Planet, Planet Earth and One Planet; Anthony Kelly, SITE board member and director of marketing, who shared the latest global trends in the industry; and Lynne Norris, senior events director at Imagination, who revealed the ins and outs of Shell's Rising Stars incentive trip.
