CityDNA Summer School: Hosting Meetings With Legacy

17th Jul, 2023

The next CityDNA Summer School will be held in Gdansk, August 26-30, 2023. And one of the new subjects that is discussed during the educational Meetings Industry programme is hosting meetings with legacy.

Ongoing education and professional training are crucial to face the continuing changes within the Meetings and Events Industry. Since 1987, the aim of the CityDNA Summer School is to provide incisive insights into the structure and functioning of the Meetings Industry, bringing delegates face-to-face with top industry practitioners.

The Summer School constantly evolves to fit the always changing world, and since the 2022 edition, three new subjects have joined the syllabus: “Regenerative destinations and sustainability strategies”, “Why Diversity, Equity and Inclusion is the key to staying relevant and sustainable” and “Hosting meetings with legacy”.

More and more destinations wish to host successful conferences that have a legacy and a long-term positive influence. A legacy is what you leave behind or what remains in a destination after your event is over. It benefits people, society and the destination.

Conferences and industry events are where people meet and often the society questions their use or relevance. In a world where sustainability and regeneration are on all the lips, how do you balance the effect of travelling to a conference in contrast to the goal of sustainability? That’s why conferences should generate added value for the participants, the residents, the professionals involved (hotel, caterers, transport, etc) and the place where it takes place.
