EEAA Conference looks ahead towards a brighter future despite global uncertainty
“Globally, nationally and locally major shifts are occurring and we have heard about these in the conversations on and off stage kicked off by international expert, Steve Monnington,” said EEAA chief executive Joyce DiMascio.
“We have spoken over many years about the changes impacting the way people communicate – these changes are now at the heart of the way expos and events are delivered. But change will be a constant as both the macro and micro influences on the social and business environments continue to play out.”
In his opening address, new EEAA president Spiro Anemogiannis said that the conference program included topics from global industry mergers and acquisitions, to an economic overview with the ever-present topics of marketing, data, digital trends and will finish up with case studies on trade and consumer shows with association perspectives.
“This year’s conference is one our best attended in recent times and I think that is testament to not only the content but to all the speakers involved,” Anemogiannis said.
The EEAA also announced that Airbnb has joined as a Platinum Partner.
“We also welcome our most recent new members – The Event Crew, Unimet Security and Entegy. Tourism Australia also partnered with EEAA to become a Platinum Partner of the Young Stars Program,” Anemogiannis said.
The program ends tonight with the EEAA 2016 Conference and Awards for Excellence.
