Following an announcement made in Chicago last week, Cape Town has won the bid to host the Society of Incentives and Travel Executives (SITE) Conference in 2010. It is the first time that this international conference will be hosted in our country.
This global event will host over 550 international industry leaders and provides an opportunity for travel professionals to discuss the latest trends in the travel industry.
Cape Town International Convention Centre (CTICC) Managing Director Dirk Elzinga says that this in an important conference and that South Africa is fortunate to be hosting it, especially in this time of economic uncertainty.
“Many of the hotels in Cape Town depend heavily on the corporate meetings and incentive meetings. To bring hundreds of incentive organizers from all around the world to Cape Town, is a big success,” said Elzinga.
Elzinga says that it gives people the opportunity to see for themselves what Cape Town has to offer and also to see what value for money it is to visit the Cape.
“That is obviously what the organisers want to demonstrate,” he said.
