Scotland SITE chapter opens to boost profile

The Society of Incentive & Travel Executives (SITE) has set up its first Scottish chapter with an initial 34 local members signed up. DMC K&N Associates president Kate Galloway has been elected president of the Scottish chapter and maintains membership will increase to 40 by the end of this year. “The Scottish chapter of SITE will be instrumental in promoting the country’s profile as a world-class incentive destination,” she said. Plans for the chapter include staging an educational workshop in Glasgow this month, hosting Dutch members of the SITE chapter in July and meeting with corporate clients at a networking event in Edinburgh this autumn. The chapter will also work closely with the British SITE chapter, headed by Alan Rogers. The Scottish chapter officially launched at Dundas Castle in April. Edinburgh Convention Bureau head Sue Stuart said: “Incentive travel accounts for £50m of the £490m annual revenue from business tourism to Scotland. “The establishment of a Scottish SITE chapter will be an invaluable asset in enhancing Scotland’s image as an incentive destination and will assist in growing the economic benefit that the country can derive from the incentive traveller,” she added.
