Rugby World Cup
2015 | 2019
The 2015 Rugby World Cup was an extraordinary opportunity for a trade incentive that Pernod Ricard Australia and New Zealand offered their industry trade partners.
A two week long tour to the vineyards and distilleries of G.H. Mumm, Chivas Regal, Glenlivet, Jameson's Whiskey and Beefeater. Pernod Ricard’s guests visited brands across France, Ireland and the United Kingdom for a first hand encounter with their production, soul and history.
With the timings strategically organised, each Pernod Ricard location was also host to a Rugby World Cup blockbuster match. The ingenuity of merging Pernod Ricard’s premium brands with world-class international rugby was a huge success for Pernod Ricard and an unforgettable way to thank their industry supporters.
F2T took on a full reservations, hospitality and chaperone role to aid the success of this unique luxury travel incentive. Arranging flights, accommodation, transfers, dinners, tours, tickets to games and the chaperoning of all on ground activities.
It was such a success, that F2T is hosting several different incentive groups across games in Japan for the 2019 Rugby World Cup.
