ICCA-TTG Passionate Breakfast @ IT&CMA
Graceful Powers
The roles women play in the business events industry have come a long way, and now female leaders are at the forefront of meetings and events management, making up a large part of the workforce. But there is still much the industry can do to encourage gender diversity at the leadership level – a move that brings proven commercial benefit and improved work-life balance for all. It seeks to celebrate the role of women in the industry through personal stories shared by incredible female achievers in our midst. Each storyteller will reveal how they have navigated through their career development and eventual leadership role. And the collective story will be of perseverance and strength.

Keynote Address
Transforming Your Audience Engagement
The traditional methods of event marketing in the MICE industry is undergoing a transformation, moving away from a linear speaker-delegate approach towards a more experiential model that uses new tools such as Artificial Intelligence (AI), Virtual (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR) to create a more personal and community experience. The speaker and panel looks at what makes an experiential event effective and successful? They will also discuss how the industry can leverage opportunities from digital technologies to build greater brand sustainability and get higher ROI, and how MICE planners can work with marketers and influencers from multi disciplines to improve the way they engage with audiences.
