Our client tasked us with creating a bespoke VIP incentive trip to Los Angeles based around the Fury v Wilder fight in December 2018.
What we did
- VIP transport throughout. We arranged business class flights, airport lounges and executive airport transfers on both sides to ensure seamless and relaxing travel for our guests right from their front door and back again
- Luxury accommodation. We secured the 5* Ritz-Carlton Los Angeles for their accommodation, situated in a prime downtown location just a 3-minute walk from the STAPLES Center where the fight took place!
- VIP package. We arranged a top tier package including ringside seats, an autographed glove by both boxers and a photo inside the ring
- A bespoke itinerary. Based on the guest’s preferences we organised a private chauffeured tour of LA’s major highlights, tickets to see the LA Lakers, dinner at celebrity hotspot The Palm and plenty of free time to explore all downtown has to offer
Here's what we organised for the 4 day trip!
Executive transfers to Gatwick airport ahead of their midday flight to Los Angeles. Landing into LA in the late afternoon guests were transferred to the Ritz-Carlton where they had time to relax and explore night time downtown LA before the jam-packed fight day!
Guests were picked up mid-morning by their personal tour guide and taken on a half day chauffeured tour of LA’s highlights. Ranging from the Griffith Observatory, the Hollywood Sign, Rodeo Drive, Hollywood Boulevard, Sunset Boulevard… and many more.
Arriving back at the Ritz-Carlton mid-afternoon, guest’s tickets were hand delivered to the hotel along with an autographed boxing glove signed by both fighters to get them even more hyped for the upcoming fight. They then enjoyed the electric atmosphere of the fight itself at the nearby STAPLES Center from ringside seats and ventured into the ring post-fight for a photo!
Allowing them a relaxed morning after the previous late night, guests made their way back to the STAPLES Center in the afternoon to watch the iconic LA Lakers in action as they took on rivals the Phoenix Suns. That evening dinner followed at the historic The Palm restaurant which with the NBA and NFL as neighbours is a hotspot for sporting legends and celebrities alike.
The final day of their trip saw our guests with nearly a whole day of free time to explore LA at their will before their executive transfers and business-class flights back home.
We were delighted to work with our client and their guests to put together this VIP bespoke incentive trip, especially given our love for Los Angeles’ vibrant, buzzing atmosphere, beautiful weather, exciting food scene and endless things to do.
Our guests had an amazing time, a once in a lifetime trip!
