Maggie Speaks Performs at International Incentive Trip for Fortune 500 Client

Maggie Speaks Performs at International Incentive Trip for Fortune 500 Client

Maggie Speaks just returned from an epic international engagement with a longtime major Fortune 500 client whom they have been working with since 2009. Through this partnership, Maggie Speaks has performed all over the world for this client’s top salespeople who have achieved their sales goals for the year.

These incentive trips are the client’s way of showing appreciation to their top performers for work well done. So the winners and a guest get a three-day trip to a luxury resort where they have activities, dine-arounds, a theme night as well as an awards gala and afterparty.

This year, the event was held in Riviera Maya and the theme was “Space Oddity.” Maggie Speaks performed for three different waves of winners and attendees dressed in outer-space-related costumes. To set the tone for the evening, the band performed songs like “Final Countdown” from Europe, “Venus” by Bananarama and “Counting Stars” by One Republic. Furthermore, Maggie Speaks’ team in Austin, Texas, did a 70’s Glam theme consisting of disco and classic rock hits. All of the attendees dressed the part and filled the dance floor with tunes by the Bee Gees, Chic, Gloria Gaynor, KC and the Sunshine Band and more.

“Even in year 26, we still have to stop and pinch ourselves when we get to travel nationally or internationally for shows. We have been fortunate enough to see the world and entertain people based on the hard work and dedication that we have put into our shows,” says Maggie Speaks Founder Dave Calzaretta, who also formed Magnificent Events, Ltd. to offer clients a comprehensive one-stop-shop of entertainment offerings. “Having performed in 13 countries and 34 different states we have been exposed to so much culture through music.”

However, these events require immense dedication and attention to detail. The company works closely with the client to fully embrace the vision for their theme nights. They then develop custom shows with costuming and song choices that fit the theme to show guests a unique time that is crafted just for their experience.

“Having performed for the same organization for 15 years is unheard of in our industry, but we have managed to do this because each year we evolve and learn an entirely new show,” says Calzaretta. “Instead of the client needing to change bands each year, the band changes for them. Our clients know they are getting a partner that is willing to dig in and go the extra mile to make their event unique and extraordinary.”

That is exactly what makes Maggie Speaks and Magnificent Events stand apart from others in the industry. This also explains why they have stood the test of time for more than 25 years and continue to be so highly sought after for clients’ experiences all over the world.
