C&IT ranks us the number 1 UK incentives agency

Posted by David Gould

CR Worldwide is leading the way in the industry, after being selected the UK’s number one incentives agency, ranked by brand Conference & Incentive Travel (C&IT).

Agencies submitted their details to C&IT as part of the brand’s survey for the State of the Industry: Incentives Report 2019. It is the first time the brand has created a list of the top 20 UK incentive agencies. With a portfolio of print, digital and live event products, C&IT is the UK’s leading brand for the meetings, incentives, conferences and exhibitions (MICE) industry.

It’s absolutely fantastic that we have been ranked the number one UK incentives agency by C&IT. Our talented, strong team live and breathe incentives.

C&IT decided rankings according to each agency’s incentive-based turnover. We led the way, with an incentive-based turnover of £17.5m, accounting for the majority of our annual revenue. Agencies BCD Meetings & Events and Banks Sadler took second and third place, respectively, followed by First Event, Clive, Travel Counsellors, and Gray Dawes.

Bringing the best results and staying one step ahead

CEO David Gould, said: “It’s absolutely fantastic that we have been ranked the number one UK incentives agency by C&IT. Our talented, strong team live and breathe incentives. Our award-winning programs motivate employees, partners or customers, give them the best experiences, and bring our clients the best results.”

The C&IT 2019 survey for the State of the Industry incentives report looks at key areas, including this year’s emerging destinations in incentive travel. Having already selected some of the emerging destinations found in the report, we are proving ourselves to be a leader in this area. The destinations include Lake Como, Singapore and South Africa. These have all featured in our annual lists for top incentive travel destinations over the last few years, such as for 2019, 2017 and our previous choice for top winter destinations.

Jo Kelly, Events Director, said: “We are always trying to stay one step ahead of the industry and to spot the top trends in incentive travel – before they become commonplace. The results of this survey show that we are achieving exactly that – we’re proud to be acknowledged as market leaders.”
