Incentive Travel 10GREAT DRIVE-TO DESTINATIONS The best places to get away, without breaking the bank By Corrie Dosh corrie.dosh@nielsen.com The goal of incentive travel planning is to choose as a destination a paradise worlds away from the office, with unique experiences that top performers would not likely be able to experience without pushing the extra mile for the company. But with the economy on the rocks, the dollar losing ground against foreign currencies, and air travel more troublesome than ever, many companies are keeping employees closer to home offices. Here then are Successful Meetings’ top picks for resort destinations within 300 miles of the 10 largest U.S. cities that are still a special treat for guests. Pack a champagne lunch, order the luxury limo buses, and relax, knowing your attendees will be taken care of. 70 successfulmeetings.com SEPTEMBER 2008 SUCCESSFUL MEETINGS http://successfulmeetings.com
