ECM launched the first edition of the ECM Summer School 2.0, which will take place online on August 24-26, 2020. Attendees will discuss various topics around the meetings industry and focus on clients and suppliers with the aim to kick off a smart and sustainable recovery. The virtual event is designed as an executive dialogue for experienced professionals of the industry working in convention bureaux, hotels, PCOs, DMCs, airlines, conference venues, congress & convention centers, exhibition centers, suppliers of ancillary and other products.
The network of over 120 European DMMOs and CVBs aims to inspire professionals with best practices and new approaches to broach recovery and have a more precise look at the future of the industry.
"As ECM, we believe, that the need for strategic destination and meeting management is greater than ever before. In the post Corona world, Meeting Industry has a crucial role as a socio-economic facilitator and (co-)innovator. Therefore, it is imperative for ECM to help members align their own strategic agenda with new demands, challenges and opportunities. We aim to bring the Industry closer, share perspectives for #aNewTomorrow and strengthen networks in those challenging times when collaboration is key.”, says Petra Stusek, ECM President. www.europeancitiesmarketing.com/
