You may need to allocate proper headspace and time in your schedule to embrace conversations around the future of association meetings. This 25-minute video summary is ideal for association professionals, DMO and association meetings service provider.

We collaborated with ICCA Asia Pacific to bring insights from their ‘Beyond the Curve’ webinar, held on 26 May 2020, to the BEA COMMUNITY – usually accessible by ICCA members only.

The video highlights four professionals from different associations, sharing some of the pain points they are experiencing. These speakers also discussed mutually beneficial partnerships and future event financial models.

The four speakers are:

Carola van der Hoeff, COO & Congress Director, International Pharmaceutical Federation – FIP

Professor Chainarong Monthienvichienchai, Serra International Thailand

Greta Kotler, Chief Global Development Officer, ASAE & The Center

Richard Simcott, Founder, Polyglot Conference

If the success of global association conferences is affected by travel restrictions, should Asia create its own regional and local events? How much will participants pay to attend virtual events? How will associations keep their communities engaged in the future? Watch the video to find out more.
