SITE Global Conference 2020 Recap

SiteGlobal recap

I recently returned from the annual SITE Global Conference in Vancouver, where 640 incentive travel professionals from 45 countries gathered to discuss and collaborate on how to shape the future of the industry, and what a fantastic conference it was! This video should give you an idea of the energy and activity of the entire conference.

It’s hard to narrow it down but I want to share some of my favorite moments and highlights from the long weekend:

From Dialogue Dens to Learning Labs

I loved the unique ways that each of the meeting spaces were designed to accommodate a variety of learning styles and space availability:

Favorite Keynote:  5 Steps To Make The Impossible Possible

Ben Nemtin is on a mission to achieve the unthinkable. From playing basketball with President Obama to streaking a soccer field, from raising over $400,000 for charity to placing a record-breaking $250,000 bet on roulette—Ben’s bucket list quest has inspired millions to chase their dreams and strive for greatness. Ben weaves the compelling story of how The Buried Life grew from 100 impossible dreams scribbled on a piece of paper into a global movement of millions and skillfully connects his story to the fabric of our daily lives.   Ben’s message of radical possibility, combines with his “5 Steps to Make the Impossible Possible,” leaves audiences inspired and equipped to tackle the seemingly insurmountable. Ben’s system of achieving any impossible goal demystifies daunting tasks and turns “dreams” into “projects” by creating a digestible pathway to success. Mediocre is crowded. Raise your bar and surprise yourself.

Favorite Breakout Session:  Storytellers

It was absolutely inspiring to see and hear SITE members share such deeply personal stories about their struggles, their fears, and their mental health.  Probably one of the more impactful sessions I’ve attended. Check out the video of the entire session here.  

There we so many other fantastic moments from the conference and the city of Vancouver couldn’t have been more welcoming.  If you haven’t attended the SITE Global Conference before, I can’t recommend it enough!
