Best Event attended?
The best event I attended was an International SITE (Society of Incentive Travel Executives) Conference on Victoria Island in Canada. It consisted of some very focused workshops and great networking opportunities over a 2 day event.

What sticks in my mind were the key inspirational speakers and the social aspect of the event which really encouraged everyone to network. I am still in touch with a number of international suppliers and clients who attended this event many years ago.
