This list provides you with options for activities as well as our recommendation on accommodations for each location.

As you think through your incentive travel planning, make sure you're selecting a destination that fits your guests' preferences. Are they more of an outdoorsy, adventurous group? Or do they like to lounge on the beach with a drink in hand? Carefully select locations that accommodate those preferences.


With that in mind, here are our top 12 incentive travel destinations for 2023 and 2024.

Destination Group 1: Europe

Europe is well-known for its historical sites, beautiful landscapes, and irresistible food. If you're looking for a cultural trip that will leave guests feeling educated, Europe is the place to be.

Recent years have caused exchange rates to drop between the United States and Europe, which has proven advantageous for incentive travel planners. More so than in past years, budgets may be well-suited to trips to Europe in 2023 and 2024.

Here are our favorite locations in Europe to plan an incentive trip.
