Motivate is a centralized resource of industry intelligence for incentive travel professionals that is powered by the SITE Foundation. Motivate features a comprehensive array of timely, relevant thought leadership content—ranging from in-depth industry research to profiles of leading industry initiatives to analysis of breaking industry trends—by and for incentive travel professionals. 

About the SITE Foundation

The SITE Foundation’s mission to enhance the awareness and effectiveness of motivational experiences and incentive travel, thereby expanding their use around the world. In order to achieve this goal, the SITE Foundation—a not-for-profit organization—facilitates critical research, trend analysis, and educational programs that elevate the skills of incentive travel professionals and connects them with leading practices. These efforts are stewarded by the Board of Trustees. Additionally, the SITE foundation develops multiple fundraising initiatives resulting in donations from individuals, corporations, and industry organizations in order to fund these valuable initiatives.
