With early bird registration over, SITE has now launched a radical new education program for its forthcoming global conference in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, 24–27 January 2020.
Following an innovative “festival” format, education and learning experiences will be delivered over no fewer than six distinct stages or areas at the light-filled, ultra-contemporary J.W. Marriott Parq, Vancouver, host property for the event.
Main stage sessions include New York Times best-selling author, Ben Nemtin, on how to achieve the unthinkable while on the industry stage, and riveting, peer-to-peer talks on how to excel as incentive travel professionals are available. Dialogue Dens and Learning Labs foster one-on-one and small group immersive learning around important personal and professional topics while in the Life Hacks area you can learn how to travel for eight weeks in Europe with a roll-on.
Other sessions include:
- Marine Sophie Debatte, Head of Events Solutions, BI Worldwide, ABAC, on The Art & Science of Incentive Travel
- Bruce Smith, Managing Director, Spectra, on Data Privacy, A Global Concern-How to Keep Your Incentive Customers Protected
- Maura Dominquez-Zhang, Managing Partner, SYNEGY-CONNECT, on Sustainability, the New Luxury
- Special Sessions include Networking 201, The Certified Incentive Specialist (CIS) and Certified Incentive Travel Professional (CITP)
“SITE live events pivot around three pillars – CONNECT, LEARN, DISCOVER but learning is at the very centre of what we do and ensures our events are forward-looking, energy-filled and dynamic. Our events are suitable for all learning styles and designed to make learning immersive, holistic and, ultimately, transformative. For Global Conference, we add a fourth pillar – SHAPE. Through the Manifesto series, our annual crowd-sourced investigation into the nature, purpose and direction of incentive travel, we invite our delegates to be protagonists in shaping the future of our industry. Come to British Columbia in January and be part of The Vancouver Manifesto”, said Didier Scaillet, CIS CITP, CEO of SITE.
