Bridging the Pandemic

Themed Incentive Programs on Both Sides of the Atlantic

The Event

  • A global consulting company originally scheduled an incentive program for May 2020 in Miami, but due to the pandemic, the event was rescheduled.

The Challenge

  • Miller Tanner Associates had originally planned this international incentive program for May 2020 in Miami. Due to the pandemic and travel restrictions for international travel to the U.S., Miller Tanner Associates was able to obtain zero damage contracts from the event and reschedule for two smaller events, with destinations in Maine and Ireland.

The Results

  • The Miller Tanner Associates (MTA) team designed a one-of-a-kind experience with intentionality behind every activity highlighting the natural beauty and charm of coastal Maine along with its cuisine and culture.
  • Each guest was greeted with a gift hinting at the experiences forthcoming. Welcome gifts intentionally curated to include a pine sachet, locally-crafted Bixby chocolate bar, Cellardoor wine, and other local accouterments.
  • In response to pandemic travel restrictions, The Miller Tanner Associates team designed an experience in Ireland mirroring the experience of that in Maine with an emphasis on the tradition and authentic beauty of the local region.
  • Upon arrival at Adare Manor in Adare, Co. Limerick, Ireland, each guest enjoyed a curated themed welcome gift, a picnic basket that included a cashmere blanket, snacks, and in-room specialty drinks to celebrate the start of the incentive experience.
  • Guests enjoyed a full day of a broad range of activities on the estate grounds including golfing on Adare’s championship golf course, fishing on the River Maigue, swimming, clay pigeon shooting, archery, cycling, and exploring the estate’s walking trails and gardens. Rounding out a full day of activities, guests enjoyed dinner at a local restaurant.
