I’ve been using Designer Incentives for the last 5-6 years and have run events with them in India, Nepal and Sri Lanka. They are very prompt and creative with their responses and are always flexible with programme elements, constantly finding ways to make an incentive more memorable for guests. Their operational work is always exceptional during the events as well with every detail planned and carried out flawlessly. Their knowledge, enthusiasm and professionalism is first class and to top it off, they are a lovely group of people that I consider not only a DMC partner but also friends.Elliott Grant
