Sweet Success - CWT Meetings & Events Wins Prestigious Awards for Chocolate Brand Incentive


CWT Meetings & Events, the meetings and events division of Carlson Wagonlit Travel (CWT), has been awarded two titles – Best Incentive (public vote) and Best Incentive (jury vote) – at the prestigious Grands Prix KRéA 2015.

CWT Meetings & Events France won the awards, for an incentive that took 60 participants from famous French chocolate brand Valrhona to Peru.

The trip saw attendees meet the people responsible for cultivating the cocoa used in Valrhona’s products. For two days, the entire chocolate manufacturing chain, from farmers, to employees and confectioners, assembled to share their passion for chocolate-making, followed by three days exploring the wonders of Peru.

We are thrilled to have won two such prestigious awards,” said Floyd Widener, senior vice president, CWT Meetings & Events. “The awards reflect our commitment to building creative events that give attendees valuable experiences and exceed our clients’ expectations.”   

The Grand Prix KRéA is run by magazine Meet-In, with winners chosen through an online vote by readers of the publication and a jury of events and meeting experts.
