Forum for Young Professionals 2015
 


Please find below the 2015 programme. The 2016 programme will be uploaded in due course.

What's happening out there?

The meetings industry is constantly in motion. The challenge is to keep up. This forum will focus on what is actually happening, looking at case studies of meetings and practical examples of new industry practices. Expect in-depth discussions around client expectations, programming, marketing, technology, 21st century venues, and destination positioning. Senior industry practitioners will share their knowledge with our young professionals. And young participants will be challenged to contribute to the debates. Expect to be stimulated, to hear new ideas, and to contribute. This intensive program is pitched at young professionals determined to build a successful career in the meetings industry.
