The AIPC Asia Summit | October 22, 2015
The AIPC Asia Pacific Summit is being held in partnership with the Singapore Association of Convention & Exhibition Organizers & Suppliers (SACEOS) and took place at the Marina Bay Sands Expo and Convention Centre during the TravelRave trade show that brought together many elements of the broader industry community. This Summit was part of an ongoing SACEOS effort to deliver cutting edge and relevant industry knowledge into the region, and the first ever industry education program targeted specifically at convention centre professionals in Asia Pacific.
As part of addressing its core mission of encouraging, supporting and recognizing excellence in convention centre management worldwide, the AIPC Asia Pacific Summit assembled a wide range of industry experience and expertise to focus on key elements of the convention centre development, management and marketing processes. The overall objectives for the session were to identify how the industry in this region compares with global competitors and how its position within the overall market could be further enhanced.
The Summit was organized as a full day event that included a wide range of participants and topics, including an overview of global industry conditions, a CEO perspective on industry development, a look at international centre standards and expectations and the latest sales and marketing tactics for addressing a challenging marketplace. An additional important feature was a panel of regional and international clients who shared their perspectives on current event-related challenges and the ways that centres can best attract and support their business.
