BestCities and PCMA to collaborate with associations in advancing the purpose of meetings

dubaiHosted in partnership with Dubai Business Events and Professional Convention Management Association (PCMA), the BestCities Global Forum offers a learning environment for association senior executives responsible for organising international events.

Places are limited, but still available, with over 20 associations already signed up, including World Autism Organisation, Alzheimer’s Association, International Astronautical Federation and World Environmental Education Congress.

The Forum features a program of relevant case studies and expert speakers including forum facilitator Hazel Jackson, CEO of Emirates based biz-group; Dr Tommy Weir, speaker and Professor of Hult International Business School; Oliver Martin, a stakeholder engagement strategist, specialising in destination development; Philip Davies, president of strategic brand consultancy EMEA Siegel + Gale and Sherrif Karamat, chief operations officer, PCMA.

The Forum will cover a range of relevant topics such as advancing the purpose of international associations through long-term legacy development, improving the event’s benefits to the host community and creating strategic partnerships with destinations.

“This is the biggest event in the BestCities’ annual calendar and an exclusive opportunity for association delegates to learn and work with one another, beside the Forum’s experts,” said BestCities Board chair, Jonas Wilstrup, Convention Director of Wonderful Copenhagen Convention Bureau.

“It brings them together with 11 of the world’s best convention bureaus, enabling delegates to gain an in-depth and a bespoke understanding of each city’s unique, high quality offering, guaranteed by the BestCities Alliance standard.”
