Ovation and Swiss team up to produce trophy event


Global destination management network Ovation teamed up with the Swiss Convention & Incentive Bureau (SCIB) to create the 1st Ovation Trophy last week.


A total of 57 people representing Ovation customers from around the world flew to Zurich and then completed a three-night programme that included a team quiz trail and physical games culminating in snow sports in the shadow of the Matterhorn at Zermatt. En route, the group explored venues in Lucerne and Interlaken and learned a lot about the country’s offerings for conference and incentive organisers. The group took advantage of the smooth cohesion of the airline and the railway system to transport participants using public transport at all times. The trophy is now to become an annual event.


Ovation MD Padraic Gilligan said: “The Ovation Trophy was a perfect opportunity for our sales team to bring past and future clients to an amazing destination over three days to bond and build relationships. The team at SCIB under Barbra Albrecht crafted a creative and experiential event that left everyone with no doubt about the appeal of Switzerland as a destination.”
