WIN is an expert in arranging adventure programs for its clients. From time to time WIN arranges site inspection trips. Before inviting you to attend these site inspections, or dinners and special events, we want to make sure that we are using your valuable time productively. Therefore we ask that you complete a planner profile. There is no charge for these activities except for nominal fees, which may be incurred during actual site inspections, or for specialized research.

Our sister company is Incentives to Intrigue (ITI). Incentives to Intrigue produces customized programs that motivate and educate through entertainment (Mystery Events, Interactive Games, Treasure Hunts, & Road Rallies). For more information visit the ITI site.
