ASPEN, COLORADO —With a selection of unique travel partners in its initial portfolio, Dream Outdoors (DO) is launching the ROC Collection to bring a new level of return on investment to companies who want to use corporate meetings and incentives to drive results to the bottom line.
With founding members that include distinguished brands like Lindblad Expeditions, Cork and Tee, 5 Ring Insight, North Haven Resort, David Denies, Nervous Waters, Kodiak Legends Lodge, Synection, and Adventure Associates, Dream Outdoors is in the enviable position of delivering the ROC Collection—for “return on commitment”—to organizations excited about a boutique partner who can provide strategic direction and unique concepts while overcoming traditional challenges associated with travel incentives and meeting initiatives.
“We have been able to bring some of the best brands in the world into a innovative program that is totally committed to helping companies drive excellence,” said Dream Outdoors President and Chief Executive Officer Matt Pfohl. “For Dream Outdoors that’s a dream come true.” DO manages the collection of brands to ensure that each experience is driven by a company’s business objectives and professional goals—by integrating them with individual lifestyle passions. The result: the most effective active and sporting programs available anywhere in the world.
“Our team has always believed that our travel experiences are not simply luxury but also a very affective corporate tool to increase loyalty and inspire performance.” said Lindblad Expedition’s Director of Sales Kathy Johns. “A partnership with Dream Outdoors allows us to be a part of a larger community, the ROC Collection, with similar suppliers who also believe in that same level of effectiveness.”
After submitting an online RFS—“Request For Solution”—clients work directly with Dream Outdoors to uncover and align true business objectives with the interests of individual participants. DO’s exclusive portfolio of unique experiences are then deployed to deliver incentive solutions, customer loyalty experiences, corporate retreats, and/or leadership development programs that empower your customers, leaders, and top performers to achieve success. The highest quality specialty tour operators, small ship expeditions, and strategic facilitators in the business make that promise into a reality.
The ROC Collection thus offers organizations an opportunity to continue utilizing unique experiential meeting and incentives to execute on corporate objectives. Through our unique ROC Online community, executives and meeting professionals can research potential business solutions and gather useful industry data from qualified business facilitators. This social network is especially essential when justifying experiential corporate programs to colleagues and executives.
Since 2004 Dream Outdoors has successfully helped organizations to leverage experiential travel to drive results. Through our knowledge of experiential learning in the active travel industry and meetings marketplace, our team offers a unique collaborative approach to design experiences to provide a return on investment that mirrors a company’s commitment to its customers, managers, and leaders.
