08.00 Optional Breakfast Briefing

House of Brands or House of Cards? An outside view of the events industry based on experience of working closely with Informa.

The events market is changing rapidly. Face to face will always play a part but there will be fewer which requires changes in business model to win.  Within the fabric of the industry, partnering and communities are becoming vital.  Data driven decision making is key in this as is being part of the industry community.  Digital platforms enable both of these to happen – can you afford not to win this?
