What's Hot, How-to

Tap the Inspiration of Experiences: Country Music Awards

The unexpected demand for travel despite Covid-19 suggests that the travel industry will experience an unprecedented surge when the pandemic is behind us. Pulse Experiential Travel certificates are designed to provide employees, customers, and supply chain partners an unforgettable experience at one of their favourite events or to indulge a passion or pastime. 
 
The goal of Pulse awards, says Marc Matthews, Pulse Experiential Founder, is to enable participants to clearly visualize a goal they can work toward at a fixed budget for the company that carries no cost unless the goal is achieved. 
 
Here are some upcoming events for which Pulse Experiential can offer experiences for any stakeholder. Please note the dates are subject to change, but that the certificates are good for three years.
