AIPC Annual Conference 2021

This year’s AIPC Annual Conference will have a theme “ELEVATION”, reflecting the ambition of the AIPC Community to re-open for business and to bring organized events to the next level.

It will be a hybrid conference, with 3 stand-alone programmes, ensuring that participants across the globe can actively participate. This year’s conference will indeed be a “working conference”: short lectures on venue specific topics will be followed by hands-on workshops, turning theory into practice.


This will be combined with a limited number of inspirational keynote speakers - as Mark Gallagher with his keynote on Formula 1 at the 2020 Conference – bringing valuable insights, relevant for the AIPC Community. And most importantly: we will connect participants – via the workshops and other (fun) activities. More than ever, it is important that we create networks, share knowledge, and learn from each other.

The programme structure looks as follows:

  • APAC - Virtual AIPC Conference – 13th-14th of July
  • EMEA – on-site conference in Lausanne – 13th-15th of July
  • Americas – Virtual AIPC Conference - 13th-14th of July

We also realize that one of the key challenges for making our industry thrive again will be around talent: finding the right persons with the right skills to help us navigate into the next normal. That is why every venue participating to the event, will be entitled to a complimentary pass for a “high potential” – a talent within your team, who you think will make it to the very senior management level. This group of talents will be actively involved in the preparation of the Annual Conference, allowing to create a Future Leadership Network. And they will of course have the opportunity to show their talents during the Conference itself.
