IMEX Politicians Forum 2017: Tuesday 16 May, 2017, Frankfurt, Germany
‘A destination for Meetings and Events in a changing world'
YOUR PERSONAL INVITATION
This is an important opportunity for you to invite your politician or government representative to join us in Frankfurt on Tuesday 16 May for an unmissable and increasingly influential event.
For more than a decade, the IMEX Politicians Forum has brought meetings industry leaders together with representatives of governments and government agencies to provide a platform for dialogue and a focus for advocacy efforts. In recent years, the Forum has gained more momentum, reflecting a new awareness and appreciation of the importance of political advocacy among destinations worldwide.
FORUM KEYNOTE: PROFESSOR GREG CLARK CBE
Your politician will hear from leading advisor, advocate and mentor on cities and businesses, Professor Greg Clark. Professor Clark will explore the role meetings and events play in destinations in a world where globalisation, free trade, free movement and social order is undergoing critical change.
From his position as a global authority and advisor on city development, Greg Clark has come to appreciate the fundamental role that conferences, conventions and exhibitions play in facilitating the transitions and advancements cities and countries must make in order to pursue their economic and social development aspirations. He will explain how this knowledge can be used to strategic advantage by governments, and his participation is another significant step toward the broadening appreciation of the meetings industry as an instrument of global economic and societal advancement at a time when this has become particularly critical in maintaining international progress.
NEW: UNWTO COLLABORATION
In 2017, for the first time, the UNWTO (The United Nations World Tourism Organization) will collaborate with IMEX on the National Government Discussion. A peer-to-peer chaired discussion for Ministers of Travel and Tourism, Economic Affairs and any portfolio related to the Meetings and Events industry.
We look forward to welcoming a representative from your destination to this prestigious event. The only way for your destination to have a voice is to be part of the debate, and to be in the room on Tuesday 16 May.
Please register your interest here by 28 February to secure a place.
