BATTLING Covid fatigue along with the do’s and don’ts of hybrid conference management are among the topics being tackled at the IAPCO EDGE Asia-Pacific seminar, taking place virtually October 11-14.
The International Association of Professional Conference Organisers is also organising the events to share practical tips on retaining and supporting staff adapt to the changing times brought about by the pandemic.
The four days of thought leadership and interactive learning are aimed at inspiring meetings and events industry professionals.
The seminar will hear from 11 key experts, including Singapore-based Oscar Cerezales from MCI Group, Patricia Cheong, International Conference Services managing director for Asia, and Jan Tonkin, of the Conference Company. As well as offering new insights and advice, the experts will be available to answer questions and help brainstorm challenges.
This is the third virtual IAPCO EDGE, following successful seminars for Europe and Latin America earlier this year. The challenges of hybrid conference management as well as staff retainment are among the program line-up.
Martin Boyle, Iapco chief executive, said: “The past two years have been incredibly difficult for people across the entire events industry around the world and as a result, we have had to adapt dramatically. We know there are still event cancellations or postponements happening across the entire region, but we are seeing green shoots of recovery starting to show.
“IAPCO EDGE Apac aims to directly address concepts like ‘Covid fatigue’, recovery strategies and team motivation by inspiring attendees with new and innovative ideas to plan events – and importantly, to plan them with certainty – while also offering direct support from key industry leaders and other colleagues.”
