Industry Excellence in Business Events 2015
Over the past 15 years, CEI Asia’s annual industry survey has acted as a benchmark to showcase and celebrate the best in business events. Since its inception, the survey has gathered valuable insights into what event planners and buyers across Asia Pacific regard as top choices in destinations, hotels, bureaus, event agencies and more. This year, to celebrate more than a decade of thought-provoking editorial dedicated to the meetings, incentive events, conventions and exhibitions industry, we have rebranded and transformed our survey into Industry Excellence in Business Events and have added new categories.
The pressing issue of sustainability for the Asia Pacific business events industry is slowly starting to gain traction. As the experts show in our annual Sustainability Report, some meeting planners and organisers still cling to the misguided notion that ‘bigger is better.’ But savvy organisations already know that green events can mean huge cost-savings, while increasing efficiencies.
Inaugural ICE Conference
In November, the inaugural Incentive, Conference and Event Society (ICE) took place in Bali. More than 80 delegates from around the region attended the three-day event. They gathered to discuss key emerging trends that effect business events, from creating quality content, to crisis management, to technological innovation. For details see page 15.
