One Flight International Incentive Destinations

Each year we work with our clients on rewarding experiences and incentive conferences to acknowledge the valued contribution of top performing staff, valued clients and loyal business partners.

As a project team we pride ourselves on thinking outside the box and offering our clients and their attendees the best of the best. Each time we start discussing the brief with our clients, the underlying message that comes across each year, is that we need to provide a program that; makes memories and filled with the special touches and experiences that maximise the best of the selected location.

We aim to deliver a program that leaves each of the attendees striving to be a part of it again the following year.

Busy schedules and precious time with family has us seeking out one flight destinations for our international experiences for a 3 – 5 day agenda.
