Xcede Team Head to Brazil for Carnival

by Xcede


Our amazing team consistently exceed our expectations. So, when they go above and beyond, we like to too. Rewarding our top-performing consultants with summer and winter incentive trips to exciting destinations around the world. Our most recent trip saw the winners of our winter incentive jet off to the home of carnival – Rio de Janeiro. It was an incredible experience packed with music, culture, and some exceptional food and drink. Here is a look at what our team got up to in Rio.

For our Xceders, the party started as soon as they stepped off the plane. Our team members checked into the modern Windsor California hotel, looking out over the iconic Copacabana beach. With easy access to the top tourist spots, bars, clubs, and restaurants in Rio, it was the perfect base for our winners to explore the city.

After some brief R and R, the Xcede team spent their first night in Rio exploring the bustling district of Lapa. Lapa is the historic home of samba music and the centre of the city’s nightlife scene. Here, our team got to enjoy traditional bars, live music, and open-air samba beneath the famous Arcos da Lapa aqueduct.

When it comes to food, Rio has everything from vibrant street food to refined fine dining options. As part of this incentive trip, the group visited the Michelin-starred Oro Restaurant in Leblon. Considered one of the finest restaurants in South America, Xceders enjoyed the affectivity menu with wine pairing. It was a memorable and delicious meal that was a highlight of the trip.


The next day it was time to see Rio from a new perspective, with a stunning helicopter trip over the city before heading to the world-famous Rio Carnival. The team watched the Sambadrome Carnival from parade-side boxes as they got to experience the biggest and best party atmosphere in the world.

For our winning consultants, this trip was one they will never forget. They shared their thoughts on a short but memorable stay in Brazil:


“The best incentive I have been on with exactly the right balance between partying and activities!” – Lucas Schrodl


“An incredible trip filled with unforgettable experiences – from front-row tickets to Carnival and an amazing hotel on Copacabana beach to fine dining in some of Rio’s best restaurants and a helicopter tour around Christ the Redeemer” – James Dance


A fantastic experience with loads of unforgettable moments. – Niall Wharton


We want to thank our successful consultants for all of their hard work over the last few months. Our next incentive will see Xceders head to New York to enjoy everything the big apple has to offer. Here is to another 6 months of fantastic results!
