We were tasked with planning a ‘once in a lifetime’ incentive trip in Italy on the island of Ischia for 45 delegates. The trip was to reward and thank the delegates by providing an incredible experience, but also to create an atmosphere fit for networking and building relationships.
We built up excitement pre event with fun Polaroid pictures delivered to delegate’s desks, followed by a printed itinerary brochure to set the scene before the 3 days in stunning southern Italy.
After touching down in Naples, the 3-day programme included private speedboat transfers, a castle tour, and a welcome dinner on the hilltop with stunning island views, beautiful and remote venues for lunches and dinners, swimming, exploring and time to enjoy the sunshine and gorgeous setting.
The highlight of the trip was a bespoke Michelin star dinner by Angela Hartnett who we flew out to host guests and prepare a once in a lifetime culinary experience, all set in a gorgeous restaurant venue off the beaten track and only reachable by small individual vehicles. We flew in one of our favourite London DJs for an after dinner party, with a live percussion set that had guests dancing until the early hours.
The Smart Live team organised guest logistics, including flights, transfers (both car and boat), we arranged all venues, catering, live entertainment, and ensured the trip was full of bespoke gifts, magical surprise moments and amazing memories for our delegates.
“This was another event triumph with quite possibly the hardest audience ever! From the word go it was impressive, the communication and the little touches. The brochure, the luggage tags, the gorgeous menus and name cards and all the details such as the pizza cutters and the recipe book were so well thought through.”
“Everything was so seamless and nobody from your team stopped smiling at any point – to me it seems a miracle.”
“How did you manage to pack so much in? Great venue, great food, great wine and great company. No stone was left unturned.”
