As your new President it is a particular pleasure for me to invite you and your centre colleagues to our 2018 Annual Conference and General Assembly which will take place July 1-4 at ExCeL London, UK. In our continuing exploration of the diverse range of facilities in our membership this will be a special experience in a very unique venue in the heart of one of the most important cultural and financial centres in the world.
At the epicenter of many of the most dramatic business and political shifts taking place in the world today, London will be a perfect location for exploring what many of these changes will have on our industry. At the same time, as a highly innovative facility with an advanced approach to business development and facilitation, ExCeL will have much to show us about how venues like ours can and must adapt to rapidly changing market conditions.
We will be shaping a great deal of our program content around this concept in order to take full advantage of our location and timing, with details to be provided on an ongoing basis as we approach the Conference dates. However, it is not too early to start making your plans for attending and engaging in the very advanced learning and sharing experience we are planning.
One of AIPC’s greatest strengths is the focus and exclusivity of this event – qualities that ensure it is the most directly relevant one you will participate in this year. I look forward to sharing insights and new knowledge with you in London!
