We hope the weekly talks and upskill sessions have been useful. For us it has been great to talk to buyers and suppliers across the industry and hear first-hand what they are dealing with and how they are planning to navigate out of the current situation. But we cannot stand still, we need to evolve and innovate consistently. The clear message coming from the talks is that we all need to adapt to survive this ongoing crisis.
So, on 10th June at 3-6.30pm, we are delighted to announce an expanded ‘talks’ where we will hear from industry voices, a keynote speaker, network with partners and go on a ‘virtual bar’ crawl.
Here’s all you need to know about the event and how to take part!
Our keynote speaker is John Peters, who will talk about his darkest days back in 1991. Remember the pictures on television? He was a Tornado pilot shot down and captured and held as a POW for 7 weeks. He knows what it is like to be isolated, vulnerable and alone. It is a sad reality of modern life’: there is an anxiety epidemic, not necessarily in numbers, but how we cope given the increasing isolation and individualisation of society. And now with Covid-19, we are living in our own cells.
Industry Voices Sessions
The keynote will be followed by a number of content sessions, which have been taken over by industry voices. You can choose which one you wish to attend.
SITE GB: A focus on UK incentives
HBAA: Beyond 4th July – an industry discussion
Studio Black Tomato: How to start selling again
HIRE SPACE: Safer Events – A framework for action in the events sector
EMA: Returning to ‘Live’ – the corporate view from EMA
Then enjoy some screen ‘speed dating’ (micebook members only) in the networking area and visit some of our booths. Then, it’s onto the wrap up session before a drink in our virtual ‘bar crawl’.
The event is over, but you are not ready to go ‘home’, so grab a drink from the fridge, change your setting and join us for a “Virtual Bar’ crawl. Dip in and out of different bars, chat and be entertained by bar hosts.
Come and join the AbleMaxx team for some magical appetisers as they bring you some mind blowing mystery, magic and fun starring current contender on Britain’s Got Talent, Magical Bones, our own Top of the SPOTS countdown by Bruno Brookes and Elle Entertainment’s CF Mind Reading act.
