From response to recovery on PlanetIMEX
With this in mind, the IMEX Group working with partners International Congress and Convention Association (ICCA), Destinations International and the German Convention Bureau (GCB) have invited ‘on the ground’ advisors to present detailed business and events updates from various parts of the world as part of PlanetIMEX on 15 October.
From response to recovery: Africa, Asia, Europe, Germany, Latin America, Middle East, USA takes an in-depth look at current progress, regulations and the state of business readiness across seven regions.
ICCA’s community of meeting suppliers and associations will, together with local CVBs, cover Africa, Europe, Latin America (delivered in Spanish with English subtitles), the Middle East and Asia (partnering with UFI Asia Pacific and PCMA Asia Pacific). The GCB team and representatives from hotels, destinations, venues and event agencies will explain the scenarios for market development in Germany. Industry experts from the United States and Canada, including representatives from CVBs and Meetings Mean Business, will be part of Destinations International’s moderated session designed to share plans for re-opening destinations and welcoming visitors and business travellers.
Each update will address the immediate challenge in each region, the implications for events as well as providing useful resources. The aim of each session is to give event planners clarity on regional business readiness, policies, protocols and other influential factors.
The regional updates take place on 15 October as part of a wider week of education, learning, community and connection on PlanetIMEX. All sessions will be recorded and made available to registered attendees post-event.
