SITE Global Initiatives

The SITE Foundation has partnered with J.D. Power and IMEX Group to conduct its annual SITE Index survey, an analysis and forecast for the motivational events industry. Research examines internal and external challenges to the industry and how these factors impact the stability and growth of our market, addressing behaviors of buyers and supplier partners, providing leading indicators for future trends.  We invite you to participate in this year's survey. The survey only takes 10 minutes and provides valuable information for you and for the industry. The deadline to complete the survey is September 2nd, 2016!

Over 30 young leaders descended on the borough on a warm summer night tasting delicious culinary delights, networking and discovering the new venues and incentive caliber spaces of this unique NYC neighborhood.
