This insurance company wanted to hit all the right notes to a group of top producers and savvy world travelers. The incentive was designed to push sales through its distributors with the promise of highly unique moments in a world class city – Vienna, Austria. We pulled out the stops to uncover the true richness behind the “City of Music.”
The formal gala delivered an evening of theatrical elegance. A professional master of ceremonies managed the flow, while the Mozart Boys Choir, a live orchestra, and professional waltzing lessons by world-renowned instructor Professor Elmayer set the tone for this opulent Austrian program.
The Spanish Riding School in Vienna is the only institution in the world where the classic equestrian skills have been preserved for 400 years, much of the information passed down by word of mouth alone. After viewing the precision arena riding session, winners were treated to a private, behind-the-scenes tour and a personal encounter with the magnificent, snowy white Lipizzaner stallions.
SEI arranged a unique experience with a tour of Palais Coburg’s Wine Archive, holding more than 60,000 rare bottles, including one of the world’s oldest. The medieval cellar has many of Europe’s most elite wines, which made for a superb afternoon of exclusive tasting.
After only 15 minutes of pedaling, our group biked through the countryside filled with vineyards. The landmark mountains Kahlenberg, Leopoldsberg, and Hermannskogel were popular destinations of the emperors, and this day for top sales producers. The tour’s finale featured a traditional Viennese “Heurigen,” a wine tavern with rustic charm and a breathtaking view of Vienna.
Too, too amazing… or make that tutu amazing! SEI brought in the Viennese Ballet, famed for its remarkable dancers and lavish handmade costumes. A live orchestra complimented the private performance for the trip’s finale.
