Incentive Research Foundation (IRF) has announced that its 27th annual Education Invitational will be held May 27-31, 2019* at the new-build all-inclusive Hyatt Zilara Cap Cana & Hyatt Ziva Cap Cana in the Dominican Republic.

The Education Invitational is the IRF’s signature event. It is attended by more than 500 sponsors, buyers, trustees, hosts, media and speakers representing all segments of the incentives industry.

Inspired by Hyatt Zilara & Ziva Cap Cana resorts—Hyatt’s first resorts in the Dominican Republic—the theme of the 2020 Invitational will be “A New Perspective.”  The education and programming will explore change and transformation driving the industry. With an emphasis on storytelling, IRF’s speakers will discuss new ways to use data, present fresh approaches to program design, and highlight emerging industry trends. Attendees can look forward to innovative delivery of Invitation experiences, including receptions, destination activities, live and silent auctions, and Cabana Day.
