The one subject driving conversations among meeting and event planners and organisers today, is disruption. In just a matter of weeks, the global landscape has changed enormously. Professionals in the business events industry, as well as our clients, now face the pressing need to make tough decisions quickly.
Since the onset of the epidemic, hundreds of events have been cancelled all over the world, and news of cancellations or postponements has become the new normal. In this unusual scenario, event organisers are required to reconsider their options and to balance two priorities. On the one hand, it is crucial to uphold the health and safety of staff, sponsors, and attendees; and on the other, it is necessary to mitigate the economic impact of the disruption.
Businesses in the meetings & Events industry have to innovate and pivot to be able to meet financial obligations – or at the very least to minimise the losses caused by disruption.
#GMS2020 intends to achieve the following:
The theme for GMS 2020 is – Forecasting Ahead : Africa’s MICE industry post 2020
The GMS2020 conference faculty of speakers and moderators will focus on helping businesses in the Meetings & Events industry navigate the disruption that has been fast-tracked by COVID19 and enable industry players identify new and existing opportunities for growth.
