SITE Classic is SITE Foundation’s flagship fundraiser. Commencing in 2007 in Monterey, California, it has become a red letter event on the busy calendar of influential incentive travel professionals who come together to raise money in support of research, education and advocacy for the benefit of the incentive travel industry.
SITE Classic is built upon the strategic pillars the underpin all SITE events – connect, learn, discover. SITE and SITE Foundation events:
- Build connections amongst industry professionals and deepen business relationships;
- Provide learning experiences that foster new skills and enhance one’s career;
- Encourage destination discovery and take attendees beyond the surface, into the authentic soul of the location.
Since its inception 14 years ago SITE Classic has taken place at resorts all over the United States, Mexico and the Caribbean. During that time it has raised over $10m, re-investing these monies across a wide variety of incentive travel related projects in the areas of research, educational development and advocacy around the business case for incentives.
SITE Foundation has also made grants and scholarships available for regional initiatives around the world and, through the David Riddell Memorial Scholarship ensured the exceptional young leaders were able to attend SITE’s global conference.
Originally a 3 day golf tournament, SITE Classic has evolved into a more inclusive learning & lifestyle event with golf still available as an option. In 2020 SITE Classic will take place for the first time in an urban, city location, at the Fairmont Olympic in Seattle. Stay tuned for more info.
