Global DMC Partners Hosts Free Virtual Industry Panel on the "New Normal" for Meeting Planners

The entire meetings industry is invited to participate in an important online discussion on Wednesday, June 24, at 11:30 a.m. EDT

While meeting and event planners have always bravely faced challenges and risen to the occasion, the COVID-19 pandemic has affected the MICE industry like no other previous crisis.  To help the industry come together and face these new challenges head on, Global DMC Partners (GDP), the leading global network of independently owned destination management companies (DMCs) and creative event experts, is hosting a free virtual open forum at 11:30 a.m. EDT on Wednesday, June 24. Facilitated by GDP President and CEO Catherine Chaulet, the panel discussion, The Meeting Planner’s New Reality in the “New Normal,” will address the new challenges that planners face due to the COVID-19 pandemic’s short- and long-term effects on the meetings and events industry.

Topics will include:

  • Key insights from GDP’s Meetings & Events Pulse Survey, highlighting the top challenges that meeting planners predict they will face in the “new normal” of events
  • A candid conversation with event professionals about new challenges they are facing around airlift, pricing, contract negotiations, and more
  • How meeting and event planners are managing some of these challenges now
  • A chance to actively participate in the live conversation

The virtual panel is free and open to all. Advance registration is required and can be made online at https://attendee.gotowebinar.com/register/2746306675336427279?source=Social+Media.
