Associations from all over the world are to descend on Bogotá, Colombia, this December, for a week of inspiring speakers, thought-provoking workshops and networking all around the theme of the Power of the People at the annual BestCities Global Forum. Striving to achieve a 100% success rating from delegates for a third year running, the programme for the 2018 Forum is packed with activities that will enhance the skills of association executives.
Held in collaboration with the Greater Bogotá Convention Bureau (GBCB), this year’s theme will centre on The Power of People. Helping facilitate people to do more, The Power of People campaign addresses the ability for people to make change regardless of their surroundings.
At a time where geopolitical issues or religious boundaries can create barriers for knowledge sharing and collaboration, the business events industry has never had a more important role to play. BestCities looks to address this by bringing together 12 partner cities from around the world which promote the highest level of standards for conferences and events. It encourages them to look beyond tourism and leave lasting legacies. By holding the annual Global Forum it sets out to educate key senior association executives on the importance of these topics whilst also showcasing 12 top class destinations. The Power of People programme will aim to address these issues, generate progressive discussions and advance the cause of international meetings.
Returning for a second year, Sean Blair, owner of ProMeet, will facilitate this year’s Forum. Held at the Agora Bogotá Convention Center, just two miles from the historic centre of Bogotá, the four-day forum includes a range of talks, interactive workshops and a cultural programme to learn about the region and culture of Latin America.
Registration for the BestCities Global Forum Bogotá is now open. Free to attend, with round-trip flights, accommodation and meals for all attending qualified international association executives covered by BestCities.
