A superlative event in the colourful city on Canada’s west coast that’s been voted in the top 3 cities to visit worldwide – Vancouver! Nestled between the Pacific Ocean and snow-covered mountains, the city features an impressive skyline and an incomparable open-minded charm. It is in this melting pot of cultures that GPM incentive experts put on an amazing event for the top 20 employees and their partners. A first-class programme was required, and it began with the hotel, which offered views of the unmistakable Coal Harbour boardwalk, the North Shore Mountains and Stanley Park. The event included a gala on an exclusive yacht, as well as seaplane flights to Victoria Island to watch whales. Other activities included a boat rally through Horseshoe Bay and a tour over high hanging bridges through the forest of this Pacific coastal region. This exclusive trip required very unique support, and our online tool was the perfect way to personally meet our guests, work out their preferences and come up with something to suit them. The staff’s excellent service to their employer was rewarded with excellent service and first-class experiences.
Hotel Fairmont Pacific Rim
In February 2010, the Fairmont Pacific Rim opened at an exclusive location in the Coal Harbour district of Vancouver. Located directly on the water, it features views of the North Shore Mountains, Stanley Park and the Coal Harbour – a perfect base for the group to begin their tours and activities. The hotel boasts 377 comfortable, spacious rooms and a wonderful spa complete with fitness centre and a swimming pool on the roof.
Jazz sunset cruise and gala dinner
The participants of this incentive trip were taken under Lion’s Gate Bridge on an exclusive yacht, where they could admire the breathtaking landscape of the North Shore Mountains at sunset. The evening was accompanied by a live jazz musician, who created a relaxed, convivial atmosphere. After the gala dinner, guests enjoyed drinks below deck in the lounge bar, where they saw out the evening.
