XSITE was conceived by Richard Miseyko, CMP, CMM, President of Site Search, Inc. of St. Petersburg, FL. Richard is an industry veteran with 21 years of hotel sales experience, mostly at the director level. In 1998 he formed Site Search, Inc., a third party site selection company, and now represents over 35 clients securing roomblocks in excess of $3 million dollars annually. Having worked the Tallahassee market for many years and attended dozens of industry events, he saw the need for a different format to conduct business. Encouraged by his association clients and hotel partners, XSITE was created to provide Tallahassee’s first and only appointment-format trade show. Based on the feedback of Tallahassee meeting planners, XSITE will consist of an afternoon of breakout sessions designed by the North Florida Chapter of Meeting Professionals International. The education is followed by a three hour tradeshow. Planners provide profile information on their meeting needs; suppliers (hotels, CVB’s, and other service providers) will provide information on the scope of their services. Each are able to view the other’s information and make requests to meet with specific individuals. A proprietary software program from ITM Mobile sorts the profiles and requests then confirms matches providing all attendees with 12 individual face to face appointments.
XSITE believes our success is dependent on our partnership with and support from the Tallahassee community. XSITE is the first event ever to provide Tallahassee’s leading organizations (FSAE, TSAE, SGMP) an opportunity to exhibit together for the purpose of interacting with our attendees and promoting their respective organizations and member benefits. All attendees are encouraged to visit and support these valuable organizations.
