Seven hundred winners and their partners, plus 80 children aged from five to 15, celebrated in Sydney for four fantastic nights, enjoying events linked together by an overall joint Australian and US-designed theme.

This exciting incentive program required huge transport logistics, including private luxury limousine and coach transfers on arrival and departure.

Activities included:
• Some 400 delegates experienced the Sydney Harbour BridgeClimb over two days
• Nearly 150 participated in a Sydney Harbour Regatta
• Over two half days, 120 people took part in a Seafood Cooking School hosted by Aria Restaurant’s Matt Moran
• In an event for families, 420 adults and children participated in an Amazing Race through Sydney incorporating transport on local ferries, buses, trains and the monorail.

Some of the social events included a welcome night with street characters and shows at the exclusive Argyle venues in The Rocks and a dine-around that included 15 of Sydney’s best restaurants.

Participants enjoyed daily activities such as kayaking the harbour, surfing at Bondi, a day trip to the Blue Mountains, a behind the scenes tour of Taronga Zoo, cruising the Harbour, walking tours of the city and trips on Harley Davidson motorcycles.

The gala farewell in the Sydney Opera House included a four course menu served in the Northern Foyers of the Concert Hall and the Opera Theatre and a performance in the Opera Theatre by the wonderful Jennifer Hudson.
