Founded in 1973, the Society for Incentive Travel Excellence (SITE) comprises 2,000+ members and 29 local and regional chapters. Our members are incentive travel professionals who know from experience that incentive travel works. It works to reward, retain and motivate employees and to drive business results. The SITE global member community, which represents 84 countries is on a mission to strengthen and inspire this extraordinary industry.
SITE serves as the source of expertise, knowledge and personal connections that will catapult and sustain professional growth, and help build the value of extraordinary, motivational experiences worldwide.
Incentive Travel. Business Results. Incentive travel is a proven business strategy that provides a measurable ROI. Our focus lies in what we can achieve for our companies and clients, while also bringing value to our members themselves: tools to improve business; a supportive professional community; and a platform for industry advocacy. The SITE Foundation is committed to enhancing the awareness and effectiveness of motivational experiences and incentive travel.
The SITE India Chapter was launched in December 2013 with an initial membership of 23 members. There were some members of SITE in India, in the preceding years, but we were always short of the minimum requirement for a Chapter of our own. In fact, our oldest membership dates back to 1996 and the early members had the desire to bring a major Incentive Conference to India and SITE provided the right platform. Once the SITE India chapter was established, plans were put in place to host the SITE Global Conference and in October 2015, this dream was achieved with the support of the Ministry of Tourism and the entire industry. The SITE Global Conference 2015 in New Delhi was undoubtedly a huge success. We had a record participation of 255 delegates & 29 guests. Almost 100 international delegates took advantage of the visit and went on the pre & post tours and many SITE members worldwide still say that this was one of the best Global Conferences ever.
The SITE India Chapter has 47 members today and has a Board of 11 volunteers. The Chapter has been effectively running Educational and Networking meets for the members and we even had a CIS (Certified Incentive Specialist) Workshop for the industry, where 46 professionals qualified and today proudly wear the CIS pin. As we go into our 6th year as a Chapter, we are looking for greater participation from discerning members to help grow this forum into a strong medium for the promotion of effective incentive travel to and from India.
