Research / IRF Webinar: Revisiting Buyer Decision Drivers, Changes in Confidence and Concerns in the Last 6 Months
by Incentive Research Foundation
In April, The Palm Beaches gathered a group of corporate incentive program owners and third-party incentive house executives from across the country to meet in person in Palm Beach, Florida. The group had a candid discussion on the factors that were driving buyer decisions to move forward with group incentive travel programs. Now six months later, the IRF gathered with incentive professionals who attended the April event to discuss what’s happened in the past six months. They discussed how decision drivers and priorities have shifted, participant readiness, how to manage expectations, and how to work with the right partners.
