THE Society for Incentive Travel Excellence (SITE) will for the first time hold its annual global conference in New Delhi in October 2015, focusing on India as an inbound MICE destination.
The announcement comes ahead of the 2014 conference scheduled for November in Rotterdam, where the SITE India Chapter is hosting a Destination Luncheon.
Anup Nair, president, SITE India Chapter, said: “The SITE Global Conference 2015 will bring together travel professionals who will find an exciting canvas on which to create unparalleled motivational experiences…We are gearing to offer a unique platform for professionals in the incentive industry to network."
In a first for Asia, Rajeev Kohli, joint managing director, Creative Travel, is on the International Board of SITE as the president-elect for 2016.
Sushil Wadhwa, chairman, Platinum World, said India hosting the conference would give the country “a global visibility of proportions hitherto unexplored”.
“Rationalisation of indirect taxes by the Indian government will give us a leg-up in being more competitive in our bids for global MICE,” he added.
