The Society of Incentive Travel Excellence (SITE) will deliver its first Australian conference for local incentive planners on February 14 at the Shangri-La Sydney.

The Australia/New Zealand SITE chapter is anticipating a major return of incentive travel in 2022 as international borders reopen.

“We expect attendees will leave the conference energised, armed with a strategic plan to prepare for the rapid return of live incentives,” said SITE ANZ President, Colette Baini.

“This line-up of thought-provoking speakers has been curated from a range of industries to inspire, motivate and disrupt. You will walk away from this event determined to implement their insights into your business.”

The MC for the one-day event will be CEO of Singapore-based experience agency REALM, Selina Sinclair, who is also the former Managing Director for Pacific World.

Sustainability champion Joost Bakker and founder of events agency MASH, Tash Menon, will discuss challenging the status quo, while Nike’s former International Director of Sports Marketing, Ben Crowe, and futurist and demographer Bernard Salt will look provide a glimpse into what to expect in the future.

SITE Young Leaders will also be hosting an interactive session on Vision 2050 for the industry.

The conference is open to both members and non-members of SITE, with early bird registrations available until the end of 2021.
