Hamilton: An American Musical in London.

Last month I got to enjoy the shiny new London production of Hamilton: An American Musical. In the second act, and at a moment his life once again hangs in the balance, the titular American statesman asks “What is a legacy? It’s planting seeds in a garden you never get to see.”.

Well, with all due respect to the record-breaking hip-hop cultural crossover phenomenon, in the meetings world legacy is a garden you DO get to see.

And as The Iceberg moves into its second year, the legacy agenda is becoming increasingly mainstream: the talking point of IMEX through 2018, the central theme at the 10th edition of WOW Awards Asia 2018, and the common thread of the somewhat excellent February Issue of our partner Boardroom.

In this issue of Business Events World and on The Iceberg, much of that Boardroom content. Montreal and Jerusalem in Features (click right), and the Lampedusa-hosted SIAARTI Academy and World Parkinson Congress in Opinions (also click right). There’s a Meetings Africa 2018 preview and details of South Africa’s incentive and confex landscape. Also in Opinions, the Dubai Frame, a Freudian walk in Vienna, GDPR and the effect of women’s networking events on promotion chances.

In News (click right again), the threat to the QEII Centre rumbles on, the 25th UKCAMS survey is launched, there are figures out from Edinburgh’s EICC, Messukeskus Helsinki, Barcelona’s CCIB, Convening Leaders 2018, London’s ExCeL and Dubai. There’s also IBTM Arabia in Abu Dhabi, an events future for Houston’s Astrodome, an AIME 2018 preview, and the latest trends in incentives, which you’ll find in more detail new in Research. More as well on The Iceberg (click on View all News).

Until the next time…

Robert Coren, Curator of The Iceberg
