Island Incentive Trips Keep Top Performers on Their Toes

If part of your role as a meeting planner is to book incentive trips, one—or all—of the three main islands that comprise the U.S. Virgin Islands should be on your list. Each island has its own personality, whether your client’s top performers are relishing a quiet getaway or an adventure-rich paradise. 

The island of St. Thomas is home to hundreds of shops and restaurants that regularly welcome passengers who disembark the cruise ships that anchor in the island’s bay.
