We ran across an article in the Sunday New York Post explaining how personal shoppers are finding very customized gifts for VIPs who play concerts at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn. For example, Billy Joel was recently presented with a framed original pressing of the 1949 song "Alone in this City" from Ray Charles' early days.
As personal shopping for VIP gifts has become an explosive cottage industry in Manhattan, your corporate destination meeting can easily jump on board this trend. With multiple levels of pricing, it's an especially fantastic idea for an incentive group, which in-turn saves them the hassle of looking for the typical New York touristy gifts to bring home for themselves or family members.
How well do you know your incentive meeting attendees? Not sure what really makes them tick? Try turning personal shopping into a team building event where attendees find unusual gifts for each other. In New York City, there is really no limit to what can be purchased as a gift if you let your imagination go wild.
