Fox World Travel  has ramped up its staff in response to a “sharp increase” in meetings, incentives and other corporate group travel. Facing an 88% increase in group requests, the company, according to a statement, “is prepared with industry experts to help customers navigate new challenges such as location availability, event protocols and local health and safety requirements.”  Stacy Button, operations manager for Fox World Travel’s Meetings and Incentives Group, said that while teams have not been able to meet for much-needed business planning meetings or to recognize valuable employees through incentive travel, “this demand has come back with a vengeance, and many organizations are not staffed to serve the need.” Button said demand is higher than supply, and in many cases it’s hard to find first-tier – or even second-tier — locations or venues. She said airline schedules are “ever-changing, causing more rework than I have ever seen in my 16 years at Fox.”  To meet the growing demand, Fox Meetings and Incentives Group has added Krista Dreves, sales director; Emily Debruge, program manager; Keri Furlano, program manager; Nicole Zills, program coordinator; and Kayla Kaupe, program coordinator.
