Where the meetings world and
public policy makers connect
Focusing on redefining the impact of business events on destination eco-systems – our Policy Forum brings national and city policy makers, association leaders, destination innovators and industry thought-leaders together to discuss and influence the future direction of business events related to policy making and strategic destination management.
Our collaborators are AIPC, City Destinations Alliance, Destinations International, EIC, ICCA, JMIC, The Iceberg and UNWTO.
There is no cast-iron guarantee of future success for the Business Events sector: we are not natural high-flyers on the list of policy makers’ priorities; we are often seen as part of the sustainability problem rather than part of the solution; we suffer from frequent bouts of identity crisis in terms of where precisely we fit into the economic landscape.
To chart a path where we can survive and thrive, and more importantly, where we can maximise our contributions to thriving cities and sustainable solutions for the whole planet, we need to start holding uncomfortable conversations, not only with the usual suspects, our industry colleagues and clients, but with sceptical policymakers and with experts who will challenge our assumptions and stretch us to find unexpected solutions!
