With its reputation as the regional peacemaker, Jordan has hosted many high-level political and corporate meetings and conferences. Its facilities are second to none, with excellent hotels and purpose-built conference centres, all equipped with the very latest amenities needed to hold a successful event.

The Dead Sea is becoming an increasingly popular location for business meetings, conferences and incentives, and the main hotels offer some of the best facilities available in Jordan.

All of Jordan's stunning locations provide plenty of scope for unusual, challenging and unforgettable incentive activities – from floating in the buoyant waters of the Dead Sea and exploring the vibrant underwater life of the Red Sea, to the breathtaking desert experience.

The Dead Sea's extreme salinity and location, 400m below sea level, has created one of the world’s most unique environments. Pride of place goes to the incredible experience of floating in the Dead Sea – it is quite literally impossible to sink thanks to the water’s buoyancy, and the water’s properties have been mentioned and chronicled as far back as the Ancient Greek and Roman civilizations.

For incentive groups, the floating experience and treks around the neighbouring landscape offers excellent opportunities for outdoor adventure. However, the Dead Sea also has another huge attraction – the healing nature of the waters and the black Dead Sea mud. For thousands of years the healing powers of the Dead Sea and the local climate have been recognized. In past times, the Egyptians used to make cosmetic products of the minerals,while the Romans treated their wounded soldiers there. Today, the Dead Sea attracts over 800,000 visitors every year, with the majority sampling at least one therapeutic spa treatment.

For incentive groups looking for a spa experience, then a trip to the Dead Sea is essential. Three five-star resorts, the Kempinski Hotel Ishtar Dead Sea, the Mövenpick Spa Resort, and the Jordan Valley Marriott Resort and Spa offer fully-equipped spas (including the internationally award-winning Zara Spa at the Mövenpick, Anantara Spa at the Kempinski Ishtar, and the Spa at the Marriot) that allow guests to enjoy numerous beauty and relaxation therapies using the mud and waters from the Dead Sea.

Another that is popular is the four-star Dead Sea Spa Hotel, home to the well-known Dead Sea Medical Center, created in 1989 and headed by a German dermatologist. The Dead Sea Medical Center is certified by the Jordanian Ministry of Health and the Jordanian chamber of Physicians for the treatment of skin complaints, physical therapy and rehabilitation, and offers more medical than purely aesthetic therapies.
