Corporate Incentive Programs, Meetings and Special Events
I arrived on the shores of Maui in the winter of 1996 following the sale of my photography business in the Seattle area. In 1996 and 1997, I broke into the Corporate Incentive business helping out with Dinearounds and Airport Arrivals, filling in around another business that I had at the time. Soon I was hooked. It was exciting times in the industry, the nineties were booming, the industry was booming. In addition, the camaraderie at the time was unique. I built scores of lifelong friendships in the biz and it is really the people that I love most about Travel Director work. In the late nineties, the scale and the budgets of the programs were on another level from what we generally see in the industry today. I was fortunate to gain experience in the industry that would be difficult to duplicate today because so many companies have scaled back their commitments to incentive travel programs over the years. Over the years I have worked on hundreds of meetings and events in venues in Hawaii, across the United States as well as internationally.
Since my beginning in the later nineties, I have developed event management skills and logistical expertise working on high budget corporate incentive programs. I have experience working programs at most of the major resorts on Maui, Oahu, Hawaii, Kauai and Lanai. I have worked more than 80 incentive programs with 500+ guests and at least 30 incentive programs of 1000+ guests. All totaled Kevin worked on more than 400 corporate incentive programs, meeting and amenity experiences. In 2001, I expanded my business both nationally and internationally. In 2007, I relocated to Costa Rica to manage the Eco Preservation Society the organizations Eco Tourism and Volunteer programs, keep my foot in the door in the Meetings and Incentive business back home. Kevin's forte is managing complex transportation movements (7000 guests). I have extensive experience managing large transportation movements, particularly at the Maui International Airport (Still all the same porters). In addition, I have extensive experience with: VIP and Celebrity Service, Hospitality Desk (up to 1000 guests), Tour Sales, Golf Coordinator, Food and Beverage Lead (up to 3000 guests), Expo and Display Lead, Dinearound coordinator.
