The SITE Foundation, the fundraising arm of SITE, the incentive travel association, has launched an online auction of incentive-caliber travel packages. The initiative, Auction 2.0, #bidforit, aims to raise funds to support the foundation's mission to deliver incentive travel research, data and educational programming. Bidding on the first round of packages closes Sept. 27. Additional destinations and packages will continue to be added, so bidders should check back and bid often. The auction will end on Oct. 12 at the conclusion of SITE Nite North America, which will be held in Las Vegas.
"In past years, participation in the SITE Foundation auctions has been limited to those who attended the SITE Classic and/or SITE Nite. This year we are opening the auction to the public and have extended the auction dates to enable people time to explore the exciting travel packages and share the opportunity to bid with their friends and families," said Rhea Stagner, SITE Foundation vice president, fundraising, and vice president, supplier relations, for the Maritz Travel Co.
