Plans have been announced for a repeat of the first
industry collaborative Summer Summit following its success at the ICC London Excel last week.
‘Today’s Challenges, Tomorrow’s Vision’, organised by ICCA, ABPCO,
MIA and AIPCO, attracted around 120 high profile names in the events
They debated a host of issues including: the role of technology in
the future of meetings and
conventions, means of attracting
international business to UK and Ireland, the challenge of managing crisis and
risk and how the industry can attract the best emerging talent and promote to them the huge variety
of jobs it has to offer.
“The debate represented the first truly collaborative
event held between four of our industry’s most well known and respected
director of conferences and events at Excel London and chair of
ICCA UK and
James Rees. “It brought together a huge
resource of knowledge and experience and demonstrated just how well the
industry’s bodies can work together.
“There has already been a lot of interest in a repeat
Summit for 2011,
with other top associations including MPI keen to become involved,”
