Incentive Concepts’ 2022 in Review: New Designs, Brands, and Broadcasts

2023 Incentive Concepts LIVE featuring name brands

The end of the year is the perfect time to reflect on milestones, achievements, and meaningful moments, and Incentive Concepts had plenty in 2022. In our quest to deliver the best, better, we elevated our customer experience in every way, with exciting new brands, bold incentive ideas, and award-winning broadcasts. Like many of you, we can’t believe this year is over already, but also like many of you, we’re incredibly proud of what we achieved. Join us for our 2023 Incentive Concepts LIVE broadcasts from the PPAI Expo and featuring brands like Bose, kate spade new york, Broil King and more.

Delivering the best, better

Gift incentive programs reimagined

Throughout 2022, our gift incentive programs were reimagined as we revamped some of our flagship initiatives, upping the ante with new rewards, sophisticated redesigns, and packages tailored to the companies we serve. Gift Boxes That Give continued to make employee rewards turnkey easy, with covetable bundles curated by theme. However, we streamlined our custom packaging with a fresh design, introduced new themes, and incorporated brands that have their own charitable or eco-friendly commitments. And with Event Gifting, we evolved from a brand-based model to event themes that better align with recipients’ lifestyles and interests. Those themes now include “Innovation”, “Wellness”, “On The Go”, “Style”, “Resort”, and “Explore”. With their new looks and collections, these seamless gifting options are sure to have something for everyone.

Bold, new employee motivation incentives

We’ve always taken pride in our catalog of globally recognized, industry-leading brands, and this year, our roster expanded even more to include several exciting new partners. Among them were Ember, which specializes in temperature-controlled drinkware for the perfect hot beverage, and Echo Valley Meats, a Shark Tank-winning company focused on premium meat and food gift packages.

Our existing brand partners had impressive new releases, too. Bose’s QuietComfort® Noise Cancelling Earbuds II raised the bar for active noise cancellation, and kate spade new york brought its playful sophistication and whimsy to everyday items with a new collection of licensed products.

With our main focus on premium branded gifts from top brands or individual rewards, we continued to bring in newness for one-of-a-kind employee motivation incentives all year long.

Incentive Concepts LIVE keeps growing

Incentive Concepts LIVE originally began as a way to stay connected to our community when the pandemic made that connection nearly impossible. Now, a couple of years later, the show has grown into a force of its own. Our April 12 episode, “Beer, Barbecue & Broil King”, won PPAI’s Pyramid Award for Content Marketing. Viewers got exclusive inside looks at Bose’s QC II Earbuds, Corkcicle’s AmericasMart showroom, and the show floor experience at ASI Show Chicago. We got a new look, too, with a more dynamic platform to showcase our guests and viewer comments. And more and more, our YouTube channel became a vital resource for the Incentive Concepts community, with tens of thousands of people tuning in – a single video about Escalade Sports’ Silverback LED Mini Hoops has racked up more than 46,000 views to date! Our live broadcasts and video content continue to educate, motivate, and inspire.

Looking ahead to 2023 – More incentive rewards, more brands, more IC LIVE

As we look forward to the New Year, our goal remains the same – to provide the highest-quality premium products and seamless experiences for the customers we serve. We’ll continue to bring new incentives and rewards into the fold, with the objective of making gift incentive programs the best they can be.

In so doing, Incentive Concepts LIVE will continue to be a hub for connection between our representatives, our customers, and our brand partners. We’ve already scheduled a stellar 2023 lineup, kicking off with one of our popular Onsite@ broadcasts from the PPAI Expo on January 12. In the first half of the year, we’ll also dive deeper into top-selling products from kate spade new york, Cangshan, ONIX, and Broil King. We can’t wait to shine a light on more top-tier brands and their innovative incentives. Be sure to check our Incentive Concepts LIVE page often for updates on our schedule and to RSVP for upcoming episodes and incentive rewards.
