Incentive Works
The IncentiveWorks Hosted Buyers program design is different than others on the market. It is not built solely on appointments, but on the relationship value created by spending several days in ongoing communication and networking between our buyers and partners.

 

Why the IncentiveWorks Hosted Buyer Program Works

  • High-quality networking in intimate groups.
  • Several private group events allow you to get to know all our buyers over a few days.
  • Planners feel like VIP’s instead of “just any other buyer”.
  • A dedicated IncentiveWorks program manager for participants and partners creates a seamless experience.

Program History

The IncentiveWorks Hosted Buyer Program launched in 2007 and was the first of its kind in Canada. Eight partner organizations came together to bring qualified meeting planners from across the country to Toronto for 3 full days of IncentiveWorks which included private and full attendance events.

Now entering its 9th year, this unique program boasts all 8 of the original program partners and has grown to include a mix of American and Canadian planners. While staying focused on continuous growth, the 2015 program will see an increase in planner attendees as well as partners in the program.
