As summer slips away and autumn advances I have the opportunity in this hectic environment that we all share, to reflect on what has been achieved, whilst considering the opportunities that lie ahead.
Earlier in the year the Annual General Assembly held at HCCE member Villa Erba next to Lake Como, included guest speaker Andre Schneider, past COO of the World Economic Forum, presenting ideas and forecasts on the Trends and Challenges in the Conference and Events Industry. A thought provoking topic that challenged established ideas whilst educating the audience.
The AGA was quickly followed by the major industry exhibition IMEX in Frankfurt, giving HCCE the opportunity to represent Members in Europe to local clients as well as those from the ever expanding worldwide economies. Re-enforcing existing relationships and laying the foundations for future business. Future business activities driven by the HCCE Sales Team were set out in a September meeting to allocate the necessary finances. With wide ranging opportunities in marketing and PR.
Very shortly HCCE will have the opportunity to welcome clients old and new to stand E11 at EIBTM in Barcelona between the 19th to 21st November 2013. Another major sector exhibition giving the opportunity to network, update information, be educated and use the opportunity to present the magnificent venues that are represented by HCCE, I hope you will join us and I look forward to meeting you there.
