Secondly, we will be able to enhance our communication channels toward direct target groups through the SITE database, connecting with more than 500 members in the US and over 1,000 around the world. Thirdly, as a host country, Thailand will receive extensive business opportunities through an optimized marketing network, business negotiations and sales opportunities, as one third of participants in the SITE Global Conference are high potential target customers. Moreover, this annual meeting for the incentive travel sector will provide a new platform for knowledge exchange and create direct revenue, stemming from travel expenditure among international delegates."

As our past events have demonstrated, this conference will put a very specific focus on the destination and its ability to offer an engaging product for corporates and organisations across the world. We are excited at the opportunities Bangkok will offer our delegates to explore the Thai culture and the facilities it has for incentive travel programs.
