Inventive Incentives in Victoria, B.C.

Posted on June 20, 2019

From the gentle pace of the ferries that cross the Salish Sea to the glide of a seaplane that tours around dozens of emerald green islands before landing in a picturesque harbour, things move a little slower on Vancouver Island and we’re alright with that.

Located on the doorstep of the Pacific Ocean, Victoria, B.C. is home to vivid and rewarding incentive and group travel experiences like no other. Whether you’re looking for an authentic First Nations feast, champagne at one of our historic castles or to be whisked away to a remote beach for a salmon BBQ, Victoria is the perfect place to connect, rest and recharge.



With the desire for experiential travel on the rise, Victoria is a natural playground with boundless beauty. “We know that organizations are looking for incentive travel options that can’t be replicated,” said Miranda Ji, Vice President of Sales for the Victoria Conference Centre and Business Events Victoria. “With unforgettable historic charm and Canada’s welcoming hospitality, Victoria will leave your employees with lasting memories.”

Unlike cash rewards, incentive trips are a great way to build company loyalty and drive employee motivation. As important as it is to choose a great destination when planning your incentive trip, you should also be sure that destination can cater to the various needs and likes of your employees.
