The International Congress and Convention Association (ICCA) and the Thailand Convention and Exhibition Bureau (TCEB) have agreed a new collaboration to organise a series of educational webinars for the meetings community.
The webinars kick off on 26 May 2020 under a partnership that is designed to focus on education in response to the global Covid–19 crisis, with the objective to mitigate the disruption of activities.
The organisations will jointly design customised webinars to meet the diverse needs within their membership, the association community, and government sectors.
The ICCA-TCEB Webinar Series will consist of three webinars and will be available free of charge.
Thought leaders from across the global network will be invited to discuss broad topics on the future of conventions and behaviour change, expectations in the new business ecosystem, and evolution of hybrid meetings.
Each webinar will be developed and designed to address the needs of specific market segments, with the first focusing on associations, followed by the second edition focussing on intermediaries, and the third edition on government.
The webinars will run 26 May, 2 June and 9 June, on consecutive Tuesdays and are open to the global meetings community interested in the topic.
ICCA CEO Senthil Gopinath, said: “ICCA is committed to delivering cross–sectoral education for the continued development of global relationships. ICCA and TCEB are breaking barriers by providing a platform for shared experiences, best practices and empowering our community by providing access to education during this uncertain time.”
Mrs Nichapa Yoswee (pictured), Thailand’s Convention & Exhibition Bureau’s Senior Vice President – Business commented: “Thailand continues to embrace the spirit of collaboration and we are thankful to be partnering with ICCA. The convention industry is renowned for engaging in long–term, progressive conversations. This opportunity is an example of our desire for keeping our industry’s legacy impact in action.”
Joining the first webinar of the series will be Carola van der Hoeff (International Pharmaceutical Federation – FIP); Greta Kotler, CAE (ASAE & The Center), Richard Simcot (Polyglot Conference), and Chainarong Monthienvichienchai (Consultor of the Pontifical Council for Social Communications of the Holy See, Chair the organising committee to bid for Serra International Convention 2023 & Chancellor of Saint John’s University in Bangkok).
