2021 took off strongly in search of new hybrid offerings, digital solutions and event scheduling. Associations and destinations can no longer wait for an antidote in view of the business slowdown in the event industry and, therefore, several pieces have started to move on this chessboard.
This first 2021 HQ presents a series of fascinating cases among competitors and rivals such as CVBs, DMCs and digital/physical event organisers to build an industry with a new dynamic of cooperation in competition: the so-called "coopetition".
In this issue, you can still keep up with our Coronavirus sector featuring several associations and destination reports; our special feature on “Convening Leaders 2021” with some exciting on-site interviews; the online fam trip we took to Japan, and our usual HQ Essential on the value of partnerships.
In the chapter of the associative profile, we went to speak with an organization that will be vital in the months to come: the European Social Network, a growing community of more than 150 public authorities responsible for social services across Europe, and beyond.
Without ever forgetting our high valued association partners with their insights and projects. In this issue #98 we have also prepared a whole new design for you - check it out! ;)
