Pacific World, a destination management company (DMC), event management and PCO organization, was awarded ‘Best Incentive Program’ on Sept. 18 at rAWr Awards 2013 in Malaysia.
As a key contributor to the Malaysian economy, rAWr or “ROAR” is associated with the growing voice and recognition of the business events sector amongst the private and public sectors. Organized by the Malaysia Convention and Exhibition Bureau (MyCEB) and the Malaysia Association of Convention and Exhibition Organizers and Suppliers (MACEOS), the awards recognize and reward excellence in Meeting, Incentive, Convention and Exhibition (MICE) industries.
“Pacific World was challenged to deliver a program that would not only promote team spirit but also exceed the high benchmark set in Sydney in 2006,” said Herve Joseph-Antoine, global managing director, Pacific World. “To achieve this, the team introduced an innovative teambuilding approach in Kuala Lumpur.”
Bringing delegates together for a combined conference and teambuilding event, Pacific World’s Emerging Market Sales Meeting was designed to motivate teams from various countries and support them in working toward a shared company goal. This event was the only program that made it to the finals and emerged as winner for the ‘Best Incentive Program’ award.
“We introduced the KL Challenge, which involved a photo hunt and an outdoor activity that provided our participants with the opportunity to explore Kuala Lumpur,” said Catherine Chong, country manager, Pacific World Malaysia. “We also coordinated an activity where our attendees could build bicycles for orphans and give something back to the community. We achieved a 100 percent attendance rate for the KL Challenge, with all 350 participants from the sales and marketing division of the medical technology industry worldwide attending.”
Following a worldwide rebranding project in November 2011, Pacific World as a global brand is recognized for delivering operational excellence, creativity and best-in-class customer service across the world. By working closely with local governments and convention centers, the global MICE company delivers event solutions in over 25 countries, including China, India, Hong Kong, Thailand, Cambodia, Vietnam, Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia, Greece, Scotland, Portugal, Spain, Southern Africa, France, Monaco and England.
