Our eagerly awaited 19th Annual SITE Holiday Event & Charity Auction will be held at the Beverly Hills Hilton in the iconic International Ballroom. The International Ballroom has been home to the Golden Globes and a number of historic Hollywood events. This Beverly Hills destination will be a fantastic backdrop to our annual event.

As you know the Holiday Event changes up each year depending on the host location. This year, we have gone Hollywood Glamor, with a dinner format and a shortened program due to the strength of the economy. We are not offering golf, the 5K or the vendor showcase, but you can still enjoy the silent auction, the welcome reception, a fabulous red carpet gala dinner, after-party, the planner breakfast and our much loved Give Back Get Back event. We are also excited to be including our first ever Yogathon, and are looking to include a few more surprises and networking opportunities along the way. And of course, our continued focus on raising funds for local grass roots charities. This year, we are honored to support The Rock Club and Donovan's SMILE. Learn about our 2017 Holiday Event Charities.

How safe is our industry?

The events and tourism industry is facing new security challenges every day, from the possible banning of laptop computers on inbound flights from Europe, to major IT failures, travel has for many lost its sense of charm and has become more of a hassle than a pleasure. How should event professionals respond, what future challenges can we expect and how do we prepare for these ever changing challenges?

Join us as Peter Tarlow addresses the security challenges our industry faces in today’s changing world.
