WALTHERS DESTINATION BUSINESS SOLUTIONS

Walthers DBS, South Africa was again honoured with a 2016 SITE Crystal Award at the Crystal Awards Recognition Ceremony held 6 November in Panama City, Panama.
Cementos Moctezuma, a Mexican producer of cement and concrete products for the construction industry, conducts an annual incentive program for its internal staff and distributors. Africa was selected as the preferred destination – a continent that few Mexicans have visited. While the global trends are for shortened programs and staying closer to home, the program demonstrates that an exceptional incentive travel experience - even a 9-night program to a destination more than 24 hours away - can motivate spectacular results.
Working closely with Walthers DBS, Cementos selected a nine-night program covering three regions and four countries: South Africa, Zambia, Botswana and Zimbabwe. The Programme included a 2 night safari at 13 lodges located in three South African regions for 300 guests.
“Pushing boundaries makes for a great incentive. Having an open-minded client, who was willing to consider some creative ideas, resulted in a truly special program. We sincerely thank Cementos Moctezuma for placing their trust in our team and for the creative freedom to design a 10-day program that allowed the 300 qualifiers to fully appreciate our region,” stated Daryl Keywood, managing director, Walthers DBS. “The complicated logistics of this program were no mean feat, and we are particularly proud of the entire Walthers team who managed to pull off a really memorable event.”
Cementos Moctezuma believes that the incentive program to Africa was a major factor in the motivating both the staff’s and distribution partners’ performance. With primary objectives to drive sales growth and market share, the company achieved record results: a 36.6% increase in earnings. The return was phenomenal considering that the construction industry GDP growth for the same period was only 2.6%.
