The local Australia and New Zealand chapter for the Society of Incentive Travel Excellence (SITE) picked up two chapter awards at the society’s global conference in Dublin last week.

The ANZ chapter received the Excellence in Membership and Rising Star awards last Wednesday, with current chapter president Colette Baini of Australian Conferences and Incentives, accepting the award in person, in front of 300 other face-to-face conference delegates.

Baini said it had been a difficult two years for the incentive sector and that she was proud to have the efforts of those in the ANZ chapter recognised for their work during this time.

“There has been nothing but positive comments about the opportunities for the incentive travel sector at this conference and winning these awards in front of such an esteemed audience has made this journey so worthwhile,” she said.

“What has been exciting from an Australian and New Zealand perspective is talking to incentive travel practitioners working in all corners of the globe who are so keen on running programs Down Under in the coming few years.”
