Developments in Fyvar - Spain
FYVAR begun a new phase of development with a new president, a new governing body, a new Selection catalogue and having completed the first analysis of the sector in the Iberian Peninsula. And all of this without failing to celebrate the now classic Road Shows in various cities in Spain and Portugal, the training courses and seminars as well as multiple activities during last Expo Reclam and also without failing to offer to it’s members discounts and other advantages such as Crédito y Caucion (insurances), Transportes Ochoa (distribution) or PSI Assistance (Duesseldorf). The last edition of the Expo Reclam Exhibition was a meeting point for all of our associates. Following months of great activity, three important changes were about to be announced in FYVAR. The first was made public during the General Assembly held at the Hotel Tryp in Madrid. The outgoing president, Rafael García, concluded his mandate at the head of the association after four years and welcomed his successor Manel Sanchez (Director of Delta Import Diffusion for the Iberian Peninsula).
The Incentive Club - Outlook Report
The Incentive Club - more than 240,000 partners worldwide - said 2013 was a very bad year for motivation activities, promotional campaign and incentive tours & premium travel. The research involved a global audience of more than 5,000 partners in 55 countries. Compared to previous years, 80% had a drastic reduction for all marketing and promotional activities including incentive trips, premium travels and promotional campaigns. Cost pressures, fewer delegates and smaller budgets changed the criteria of booking a venue or launching a promotional campaign. Looking forward to 2014 the most important factor influencing decision-makers is uncertainty about the global economic outlook, but 51 % of partners feel confident about the sector’s prospects and 26% expect to hold a better number of activities this year if venues and suppliers will be flexible enough and they will work more closely with agencies and meeting & incentive planners. ++++++++ www.theincentiveclub.com ++++++++
