Case Study – Distant Frontiers


Company: Vorwerk Folletto

Requirement: Incentive for top sales agents from Italy

Number of people: 176 pax.

Folletto wanted to reward their top performing sales agents with a memorable trip to the Indian Subcontinent, where they would be able to enjoy a perfect blend of culture, stunning scenery and picturesque relaxing beaches. What better way than to start by exploring the magical Golden Triangle program covering Delhi, Agra and Jaipur followed by a private chartered flight to the magical Maldives.

Distant Frontiers (DFT) handled the logistics for the Indian component of the incentive and provided many life long memories including private experiences, excursions and gala evenings. Participants were able to experience local culture such as visiting local temples in Delhi, exploring the oldest market of north India (and taking in its vibrant colours) and taking part in an entourage of cycle rickshaws through the narrow streets of Chandni Chowk (the Folletto branded t-shirts certainly made heads turn).

The expedition continued with a visit to the Taj Mahal in Agra and a jeep ride through the streets of Jaipur, culminating in a farmhouse nestled in the wilderness where guests enjoyed a lavish lunch followed by elephant rides. However, the main highlight of the trip was the gala extravaganza in the luxurious Oberoi Rajvilas hotel in Jaipur, which was exclusively booked for the group. The evening started with cocktails and canapés by the pool, beautifully decorated with flowers and diyas. Traditional dancers and drummers escorted everyone to the venue where decorated elephants, camels and horses were majestically lined up as a welcome to the Raj Mahal restaurant. The restaurant had a beautiful rangoli of the company’s logo at the entrance. While dining, the clients had an opportunity to not only enjoy watching the dancers but also join in! For those who craved more, a DJ upped the party mood in a private room which went on till the wee hours in the morning.

A dedicated team of DFT staff escorted the group to ensure that all the events and activities were well-coordinated and went off smoothly. The client was extremely impressed with the flawless execution of such a large incentive and very grateful to the DFT staff for putting on a great trip for their star performers.
