It was a pleasure this week to attend AIME 2020 and open the Leaders Forum on behalf of ICC Sydney, proud Presenting Partner. The meeting is always an excellent event, bringing together the most experienced minds within the conference industry to discuss and tackle the big issues of the day.
This year the meeting could not be more timely or pertinent, as our industry faces challenges on an enormous scale. In the last 12 months, we have not only seen devastating natural disasters but also now the Coronavirus impacting our businesses, clients and the communities in which we operate.
As an industry, we are used to dealing with challenges. Whether that’s economic shocks, natural disasters or health epidemics, we have and will continue to weather the storms. It is the status quo to be operating against this backdrop, rather than the other way round.
