9th SITE Crystal Award for Dragonfly Africa

Award winners
At a SITE Crystal Awards luncheon held in Rotterdam, Holland this week, the Genband Presidents Circle Programme, operated by Dragonfly Africa, was chosen as a 2014 Worldwide Site Crystal Award winner in the category - Most Impactful Effort Toward Corporate Social Responsibility as Part of an Incentive Program.

SITE (Society of Incentive Travel Executives) is a global network of meetings and event professionals dedicated to delivering business results. The highest levels of workplace performance are reached by individuals and teams that are highly motivated. Motivational experiences are a powerful business tool to reward and unlock human potential to achieve corporate objectives. SITE is the only global authority connecting motivational experiences with business results and serves as the source of expertise, knowledge and personal connections that will catapult and sustain professional growth, and help build the value of extraordinary motivational experiences worldwide. This is a hugely prestigious award for South Africa and was accepted on Dragonfly Africa’s behalf by Mike Waller, Chief Executive Officer. The SITE Crystal Awards are known as the “Oscars” of the Incentive Travel Industry and serve to honour top professionals and programs that recognize the power of connecting motivational experiences to solid business results. As the business climate and traditional “way of doing business” have evolved over the past years, so have the criteria and standards for motivational events.

There were only 6 Crystal Award categories this year:
• Best Business Solutions – Most Effective Incentive Marketing/Promotion Campaign
• Distinctive Destination – Best Destination-Based Experiential Incentive Travel Program
• Exceptional Motivational Travel Program – Best in Class by Global Region
• Most Impactful Effort Toward Corporate Social Responsibility as Part of an Incentive Program
• Inspiring/Rewarding Experiences – Most Outstanding Single Motivational Event within an Incentive Program
• Responsible Experiences – Most Environmentally Sustainable Incentive Experience
