Two years into the global COVID pandemic, with much of the world’s population vaccinated against the disease, policymakers around the world are faced with the challenge of stimulating and managing their societies and economies. As COVID-related restrictions are rolled back and lifted, policy priorities are shifting.
Business events will be a key driver of this recovery, both locally and globally. Bringing communities, markets and industries together face to face has always been and will remain the best way to drive innovation and business.
To support the reopening of business events as well as of the wider events industry, three Iceberg partners have launched a new policy white paper: Business Events are the Fast Track to Recovery.
The report is produced jointly by AIPC (the International Association of Convention Centres), ICCA (the International Congress and Convention Association), and UFI (the Global Association of the Exhibition Industry).
