WHERE TO GO

Sao Paulo Grand Prix

Sao Paulo is a buzzing city and no more so than during the grand prix when it is packed with famous faces and fantastic opportunities for viewing the famous race. Whether you want a private, VIP catered box or to be closer to the action you can choose your involvement.  Sao Paulo also offers luxurious hotels and some of Brazil’s finest restaurants, including D.O.M., named as one of the top ten best restaurants in the world.

Argentina

Argentina is one of the most popular choices for incentives and corporate hospitality, largely because of the diverse range of activities on offer. The capital of Buenos Aires is a vibrant city, offering top class hotels and experiences. Why not offer some Tango classes and give the team a chance to try this classic dance? Football is a big passion all through Latin America and no less so in Argentina, a match between River Plate and Boca Juniors is definitely a bucket-list experience. Enjoying it from the comfort of a private box adds the final touch of luxury. Argentina’s second most famous sport is Polo. Spend some time watching this centuries-old sport and even try it for yourself. The wine of Argentina is some of the best in Latin America and the region of Mendoza offers ample opportunities for luxury hotels and wine tasting tours.

Brazil

Brazil is the most obvious choice for an incentive or corporate hospitality trip. As Latin America’s main business hub, corporations around the world hold offices and partners in this diverse and beautiful country. Cities such as Rio hold iconic sights, beautiful beaches and a vibrant party scene whether you want to learn to samba, hang glide over the city, sip caipirinhas on Copacabana beachfront or get involved in a local outreach programme, Rio is for you. Pop down to Iguassu Falls on the border with Argentina and experience one of the seven natural wonders of the world from the walkways, a speedboat or helicopter over the top. Brazil offers the best wildlife in South America and the best place to see it is a luxury lodge in the Pantanal. Whether you are spotting jaguar or learning about breeding programmes for macaws, the Pantanal will delight all who visit. Take a trip to the Amazon for an epic journey to one of the world’s most famous rivers, fish for piranhas, meet local communities and support indigenous tribes.

Rio Carnival

There is surely no better corporate reward than a trip to the biggest party in the world! Rio Carnival, taking place every year, 40 days before Easter is Brazil’s most famous event. Each city has its own version but Rio’s is world famous and the possibilities for experiencing it are alluring. Hire a private box on the Sambadrome and watch the parade in luxury. Allow your team to take part as we organise costumes and they samba down the parade route, cheered on by 40,000 people. If you want to get closer to the action without taking part, sit with the locals on the concrete bleachers and make sure you attend one of the many street parties that take place during the carnival. Dance with the locals and get dressed up for an experience like no other. If you are looking for style and elegance, tickets to the Magic Ball at the Copacabana Palace are a must. The black tie and costumed event held at one of Latin America’s most iconic hotels is an incredible experience for all the senses.
