Incentive influencer - the North America perspective

Greg Bogue, EVP: Design Studio, Maritz Global Events shares why New Zealand ticks the boxes for the ultimate incentive trip.


Greg Bogue, EVP: Design Studio, Maritz Global Events, has been dedicated to creating event experiences that move people for more than 30 years. The committed Kiwi enthusiast shares his New Zealand must-do experiences.


Why choose New Zealand? 


When I think of my time in New Zealand, I can’t help but think in terms of the wide array of experiences available. From high adventure to active to simply absorbing the beauty and the fabulous wine … New Zealand literally has everything. 



With the wide variety of experiences… I probably lean towards the more adventurous. Bungy jumping off the Kawarau River bridge was certainly a standout experience. It’s interesting how sharing experiences like that on social allow you to redefine yourself. The wide range of experiences in New Zealand provides you with countless opportunities to discover new things about yourself. 



The TSS Earnslaw cruise on Lake Wakatipu was an amazing venue for a special event. The beauty of the lake and the uniqueness and history of the steamship made it a very memorable experience. 


Both times I’ve been to New Zealand I’ve had the pleasure of working with ID New Zealand and have been so impressed with the attention to detail. Incentives are all about the details and they “get it”. 



I love the small lodges, like The Lodge at Kauri Cliffs. Those type of venues provide countless opportunities to personalize the guest experience.  

Is it time for you to take your thinking somewhere new?
