Society for Incentive Travel Excellence to host annual Summit next week

The Society for Incentive Travel Excellence (SITE) Southern Africa will host its 6th annual SITE Summit in Johannesburg on Friday, September 22.

Taking place at Tintswalo at Waterfall in Johannesburg, the Summit will commence with an educational session titled, ‘Making the Business and HR Case for Incentive Travel: The Link Between Motivation and Incentives,’ which will be presented by past SITE global president, David Sand, and current international board member, Daryl Keywood.

Robin Brown, owner of Zimbabwean-based DMC Cansaf, will provide delegates with an update on incentives and group travel into regional Africa, looking specifically at the perception that managing group travel anywhere in Africa is more difficult compared with other destinations.

The impact of low-cost airlines on intra-African travel will also be discussed, as Faith Chaitezvi, regional marketing executive at fastjet in Zimbabwe looks at how low-cost airlines are taking off across the region, serving routes that cater for the continent’s growing numbers of travellers.

An exciting panel discussion will also be held, when travel experts discuss outbound group travel and the importance of understanding one’s audience while delivering dynamic programmes, before Errol Ninow of Gintan Luthuli Associates discusses hard-hitting fates for the incentive industry – unpacking legislation such as the POPI Act, SASREA, Public Liability, General Event Management Risk and the Employment of Freelancers.

Speaker, author, facilitator and transformation specialist, Caroline Ravenall, will deliver the keynote address before the session closes, discussing the art of high performance in a fast-paced world. The South African National Convention Bureau will also deliver an update during the course of the day.

Delegate registration fee is R450 per person for SITE, SAACI and ABTA members, and R500 per person for non-members. To register, click here.
