Site Northeast


SITE  is the Society for Incentive Travel Excellence. Our SITE Northeast members are incentive travel professionals who know from experience that incentive travel is a powerful business tool, and together, SITE and our members are on a mission to strengthen and support our industry.

SITE is a global community of high-character people connecting its members around the world to a group of peers who share their skill and passion. As the only global authority on incentive travel and motivational experiences, SITE also connects our members to business leaders who seek improved performance through these powerful tools.
SITE’s members bring industry-leading expertise to their companies and clients, and something more — a unique can-do attitude that subverts barriers and transcends the everyday, inspiring clients and the people who benefit from incentive travel. This creative approach means we do things a little differently.
Our network of leaders and business owners take pride in achieving results for our companies and clients, and do it with an explicitly stated regard for ethics, transparency and mutual respect. Personal and professional values inform how we do business. We treat people right.  Members trust SITE to help them grow their businesses and further their careers. 
Incentive travel is a proven business strategy that provides a measurable return on its investment. We focus on delivering these results for our companies and clients. SITE also brings results for members: tools to increase business; a community supporting professional growth, and a platform for industry advocacy.
