With its broad global membership, the Society for Incentive Travel Excellence (SITE) annually hosts events across the world for professionals in the incentive travel industry. After a careful review of its event strategy, SITE has decided to change the timing of its global conference from the fourth quarter to mid-January. Since the 2016 conference was in November, SITE will not host a global conference in 2017. Beginning in 2018, the conference will take place annually in January.
Here are the dates and destinations for SITE and SITE Foundation events in 2017.
