Penguins incentives project coordinator Chloe Sweeting used micebook to create an inspiration board on Punta Cana for a client incentive brief…
“micebook is a great resource for finding suppliers, which is why it’s often one of my first ports of call when researching client briefs. So, when putting together ideas for a particular incentive brief for Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic, I created a board on micebook.
One of the main reasons I use the boards feature is because if I’m looking for a hotel or a DMC and they are listed on micebook, it gives and extra layer of credibility than if you are just searching on Google. The boards are a good point of reference, especially when we have lots of enquiries on the go for different destinations – we can see who we’ve used before and what we put forward for previous briefs as you can add notes.
I searched for Punta Cana on micebook and found a few different hotels and DMCs. I researched the various properties and pinned several as potentials, but it was the Breathless property that we felt best met the client brief – so that’s the one we ended up putting forward.
The best thing is that the profiles have the relevant contact details for event planners, which is so much easier than trying to search online for the right contact. Another great thing about the boards is you can add images from the hotel profiles, which we can pull and put on our proposals.
Once I am happy with a board I have created, I share it with the team internally. I can then update the board with details after pitching, or the event itself to say what worked well and whether we’d recommend the hotels in the future, so it’s a really useful ongoing resource for the team.”
