Registration opened for the 2021 AIPC Conference, which takes place virtually July 9 & 14 and live July 13 & 14.
The theme of the Conference is ELEVATION, reflecting the ambition of the AIPC Community to re-open for organized events and to take these events to a new level. You will hear from global thought leaders on the key elements to make this happen: technology, design, leadership, business development and partnerships. Even more importantly, you will have lots of opportunities to connect with your colleagues and share ideas on how the future of convention centers will look.
We also will share with you the outcome of the AIPC Member Survey and the AIPC Benchmarking, and we will celebrate the APEX Award.
Some of the confirmed speakers include:
Cathy O’Dowd (pictured left), the first woman to reach the summit of Mount Everest from both south and north sides, will give attendees the inspiration to elevate their center to the next level.
Grant Snider (pictured right), CEO of Meeting Escrow, will share innovative ideas on business development.
