HQ #99 - May 2021 Edition

Sustainability is the topic that is on everyone's lips and HQ could not pass up this opportunity to deepen its relationship with the meetings industry. The pandemic was definitely the spark that ignited a broader discussion, but let’s not forget the leading examples that can guide us to a sustainable recovery.

This second HQ of 2021 set out to analyse the impacts and the aftereffect that business events can instigate in the environment and the associations's role in face of this transformative element.

We went to talk to the global community Tourism Declares Climate Emergency, about acting sustainably for circular regeneration; we were at the ECM online conference to report the best principles and models for destination rebuilding; we asked Helsinki why they are an example to follow in climate action; and finally, we tried to figure out the future of the MICE industry in an era that has its days numbered.

In this issue, you can still keep up with our Coronavirus sector featuring various convention centres and destination reports; in our association interview, we invited an international NGO with that advocates for environmentally friendly technical standards, policies and laws, the Environmental Coalition on Standards. Without ever forgetting our high-value association partners with their insights and projects.

In this issue 99, HQ partnered again with Interel to launch the “Women Who Advance Associations” campaign, which aims to celebrate female talent and diversity in the international associative community. Trust the Headquarters Magazine as the most reliable source of good information and industry research.
