Movie and country music heroes turn up at planners conference

More than 4,000 conference planners and suppliers attended the PCMA Convening Leaders convention in Austin, Texas. The event’s Great Debate, sponsored by Visit Britain, saw Saceos president Janet Tan-Collis moderate a debate on technological disruption. The participants were Nick de Bois, chairman of the UK Government’s Events Industry Board, and David Wallace, a three-time mayor of Sugar Land, a city near Houston, who is now an economic analyst. Singapore Tourism chief Lionel Yeo also joined a panel on game changers facing the global events industry.

Among the other highlights was a surprise appearance by Oscar-winning actor Matthew McConaughey, who is a native of Austin, and local country music legend Willie Nelson who performed at the closing gala.
