Get ready for a whole new way to begin the SITE Global Conference experience. A V.I.Plane Experience will be revving up for a fun-filled flight from Toronto to Vancouver this coming January.


The V.I.Plane was the brainchild of Candace Schierling, director of national sales, Tourism Saskatoon and Reggie Lang, manager, business development for WestJet, in order to boost attendance at the PCMA Canadian Innovation Conference in Victoria last year. The idea was so successful, that a V.I.Plane Experience will be re-created for Canadian and international incentive travel planners headed to the SITE annual conference.


The concept for the SITE V.I.Plane Experience will follow the same game plan. WestJet will supply an aircraft that delegates will board in Toronto. Bettyanne Sherrer, CMP, CMM, and principal of ProPlan Conferences & Events, based in Toronto, will curate a planned, shared experience from gate-to-gate. “Everyone is going to the same event, the experience, learning, camaraderie and networking—all the fun stuff for incentive travel planners—will just start five hours and ten minutes earlier,” she says.
