Oh, Canada! The SITE Canada Chapter is on a role with events leading up to SITE’s Global Conference in Vancouver January 2020


Gabrielle Spanton, Executive VP, Business Development, Global Alliance, Hosts Global and President of the SITE Canada Chapter says the 2019 SITE Canada Board made a commitment to bring members exciting networking and educational opportunities throughout 2019 and beyond.

And they’ve kept their promise.

“First, there are a few slots left for SITE Canada’s 11thAnnual Golf Tournament on August 12 and some golfer foursomes are still available.” says Spanton. “This annual event is a fabulous opportunity to connect with local and out-of-town SITE members.

“The Golf Tournament will take place at The Station Creek Golf Club in Gormley, outside Toronto.  It's going to be the same great planner/supplier ratio, with auction prizes and networking opportunities. Known as the “official” kick-off event to the Canadian Meetings + Events Expo, the tournament starts bright and early with breakfast followed by a shotgun start golf tournament and a luncheon. The Title Sponsor this year is Melia Hotels International.” To Register Click Here

Tuesday and Wednesday, August 13 and 14, SITE Canada will have a booth on the trade show floor at the Canadian Meetings and Events Expo. Visitors should stop by Booth #1243 to find out about the SITE Global Conference in Vancouver in January 2020 and a fun photo opportunity. Don’t forget to prepare to apply for a SITE Canada scholarship to participate in the 2020 SITE Global Conference January 24-27 in Vancouver. Scholarship information will be available on the SITE Canada website by August 2019.  Part of the criteria is based on time spent volunteering with SITE Canada.

For those attending the Education Sessions at CMEE Tuesday, August 13, be sure to attend Designing and Delivering Motivational Experiences at 9:00 AM co-Presented by: Melaya Horsten, CMP, Director of Communications, Ignite and Tahira Endean, Head of Events, SITE Global.

And finally on Wednesday, August 14, in partnership with SITE Florida and Caribbean, the annual end of trade show networking reception will take place at the InterContinental Toronto Centre.  For more info Click Here

In preparation for Vancouver 2020 when SITE's Global Conference comes to one of Canada's coolest cities, we've made special arrangements to keep the Incentive Travel Industry Index open for one more week, but ONLY in Canada. We're looking for 100 survey submissions from Canadian based incentive travel professionals. With such a number we can present a customized report on Canada as a source market and destination for incentive travel at SITE Global Conference in Vancouver. Please click on this link to the survey or copy it an e-mail and distribute to another Canadian based #incentiveprof. Watch out for opportunities too throughout next week to take the survey LIVE!
