Host City 2022 Panel 1: What are the new realities and how can we shape them?

Season 2022, Episode 2,   Nov 18, 2022, 05:08 PM

What forces are driving the world of major events today? Where will the events industry be in five years’ time? What have we learned from the pandemic and COP? Do in-person major events have perennial value, or do we need to find a different model? How can we respond to inflation and cost constraints? Where will the balance lie between global and local audiences? And what role can events play in progressing diversity, equity and inclusion?
