Philip Eidsvold

For the fourth year in a row, M&C selected 15 women and men who showcased a keen intelligence, boundless passion and hopeful vision for the future of the travel and events industry.

Philip Eidsvold was selected among the 15 “Rising Stars” for his position with SITE. As the 2019 SITE President, Philip is one of the youngest board chairs of an industry association ever.

A fluency in French, cultivated during his junior year abroad from Gustavus Adolphus College, brought Eidsvold to One10, where he specializes in travel & events. He was just promoted to Vice President of Partnerships this past December.

Reached in Bangkok, where he was preparing for the SITE Global Conference last month, Eidsvold noted that he’s been on that organization’s board for seven years. “We have a very ambitious platform to continue to build on record-breaking membership numbers, establishing new chapters, growing educational offerings and building on the success of our Certification for Incentive Travel Professionals,” he says.

Back home, Eidsvold also sits on the boards of two local nonprofit fine-arts organizations; to relax, he does yoga and enjoys time with his partner and their golden retriever in their lake house.
