Sallie Coventry, recently appointed as the new Portfolio Director for the IBTM Global Events Portfolio said, “We are delighted to once again be part of the annual EMEC event. At the core of the IBTM portfolio of events, is the Knowledge Programme and our partnership with MPI through education is a key strategic alliance. Our sponsorship of the opening session recognizes the value we place on industry education, not least because the IBTM portfolio itself hosts more than 150 sessions, conferences and workshops every year at its events on 5 continents. Understanding the need for professional qualifications in this industry and the continuing education process we are also in partnership with RecertTrack, the world’s first online portal for re-certification. IBTM Events now gives attendees participating in our global Knowledge education programmes the opportunity to track their industry related professional development activities towards certification or re-certification at www.recerttrack.com/assn-meetings.”
The MPI EMEC General Opening session will be held by Peter Hinssen, Co-founder of Across Group and one of Europe’s thought leaders on the impact of technology on our society. The session will provide attendees with an understanding of new business models that are emerging in an era of communications and technology commoditization.
