Changes to the way business events are planned and conducted, as well as the business structure of organisations in the industry as a result of the pandemic, will be the centre of focus in the third episode of the TTG Conversations webinar series.
Titled Preparing for the post-Covid-19 world, the session on July 8 from 15.00 to 16.00 (Singapore time), will feature panellists David Sand, group CEO, Uwin Iwin International; Avinash Chandarana, global learning and development director, MCI Group; and Stephan Vanden Auweele, chief hospitality group officer, Asset World Corporation.
It will be moderated by Hugo Slimbrouck, global director of strategic partnerships, Ovation Global DMC; SITE Global past president; past chair, Joint Meeting Industry Council (JMIC).
Slimbrouck acknowledged that the business events industry “has and will (continue to) see many changes in relation to risk assessments, security protocols, GDPR, sustainability and waste prevention plans, etc”, and the impact of these developments will be discussed during the online panel.
He also hopes the session will shed light on potential new business models in a post-Covid-19 era; the future concept of incentive travel; associations’ revenue model and return on membership; changes to a DMC’s purpose; as well as value-added opportunities that the pandemic has created for agencies, DMCs and venues alike.
