Portugal Travel Team, SITE Crystal Award winners

Considered one of the highest honours in our industry, the SITE Crystal Awards recognises creative, practical, and truly memorable incentive travel programs that keep employees engaged, drive business results, and improve the bottom line for global corporations.

And this year we are delighted that Portugal Travel Team won Best Destination Based Experiential Based Experiential Incentive Travel Program ahead of strong competition for their delivery of the Chairman’s Council 2023, for their client Canaccord Genuity.

Eduarda Neves, Managing Director, and Beatriz Sá, Business Development Manager of PTT were not only there but naturally were delighted to receive the award for their hard work and that of their team back in Portugal.

Their great achievement means euromic is now the proud holders of 28 SITE Crystal Awards received collectively by our members –  more than any other DMC association.

We are so proud of Eduarda, Beatriz and the Portugal Travel Team team, not just for the amazing work that we know PTT puts into all their projects and programmes that won them this accolade, but also how their success adds to the roll call of euromic SITE Crystal Award holders.
