Elvis Aaron Presley was born on January 8, 1935 in Tupelo, MS. He and his parents moved to Memphis in 1948 and following graduation from Humes High School in 1953, Elvis began his singing career with the legendary Sun Records label the next year. Elvis’ musical influences were pop, country, gospel and the R&B he was exposed to on historic Beale Street as a teenager in Memphis.
As you might expect, Elvis’ birthday celebration is a big deal in Memphis! Last week was full of activities and celebrations to commemorate the career of the King of Rock ‘n Roll and the positive impact he had on the lives of those in Memphis, the Mid-South and the world. At QIC, we can’t think of Elvis without making the connection to our own Memphis Experience – an event geared specifically to employee recognition and business incentives.
The Memphis Experience is designed to reward the “high achievers” – bringing your star performers into our rewards distribution facility for a 60-second shopping spree. They can fill their cart with whatever items they can grab – electronics, housewares, power tools and more. The selected rewards are then packaged and bulk-shipped the next business day to participants’ homes.
Besides giving your program participants “more bang for the buck” from a reward perspective, The Memphis Experience also enhances the value of your incentive program:
- Creates photo opportunities to generate excitement and boost participation throughout the organization
- Enables participants to choose items for loved ones, so the whole family benefits from the reward, and
- Facilitates team bonding.
Each Memphis Experience event is designed from the ground up and can be the focal point of your program or a program enhancement for your highest achievers. Have an existing program that needs a new twist for 2014? The Memphis Experience can be added as a special reward for top performers. A wide range of options are available for travel, accommodations, dining, ground transportation, custom décor and more.
So where does Elvis fit in? Elvis [impersonator] is on site to add to the excitement! It just wouldn’t be the “Memphis Experience” without him! In the photo above, “Elvis” congratulates a pair of Memphis Experience participants.
