SITE Global Education Week, 11-15 April 2016, is an annual initiative designed to create awareness and celebrate the impact that the global incentive travel industry has on business and economic growth. Throughout the week, SITE will offer webinars on topics specific to the incentive travel industry. In addition, SITE chapters around the world will host regional events to address the needs of their marketplace and showcase the rich expertise of the SITE member network.
During Global Meetings Industry Day (GMID) on 14 April, SITE will join forces with Meetings Mean Business (MMB) and other industry leaders to showcase the real impact that business meetings, incentive travel, conferences, conventions, trade shows and exhibitions have on people, businesses and communities.
"This is the fifth year of Global Education Week, which is always held the second week of April, and this year happens to coincide with Global Meetings Industry Day. The initiative was created to engage our chapters and members and serve as a way to provide valuable education on how incentive travel can drive business results,” said Kevin Hinton, SITE CEO. "Today's competitive business environment demands greater expertise and industry education as both a complement to work experience and an accelerant for future success. SITE is proud to dedicate this week to offer local and virtual education to our community and to support GMID."
“With the help of organizations such as SITE, GMID will demonstrate the critical role our industry plays in building personal relationships, driving positive outcomes and supporting strong communities,” said Michael Dominguez, MMB co-chair and senior vice-president of corporate sales at MGM Resorts International.
