The International Live Events Association has announced their Global Partners for 2016–2017. They are Giants Enterprises, CORT and VisitScotland Business Events.

ILEA will assist these companies in the next year through collaborative projects and by exposing them to the global events industry. ILEA’s Global Partner Program also allows their partners to connect with the 5,000 international ILEA members.

“Giants Enterprises, CORT and VisitScotland Business Events are long-term and highly valued supporters of ILEA and the global events industry,” says Judy Brillhart international president of ILEA. “We look forward to working in partnership for the mutual benefit of our members and our organizations.”

The 2016–2017 program begins with the publication of ILEA’s first online magazine, LIVE! The magazine will spotlight ILEA’s partners and what they contribute to the events industry. LIVE! will be distributed quarterly from ILEA.

Results from the Incentive Research Foundation’s (IRF) 2022 Incentive Travel Destination Preferences & Their Impact on Motivation confirmed that interest in incentive travel as a motivating sales reward is at an all-time high. 91% of 405 survey respondents described group incentive travel as extremely or very motivating compared to 80% last year. Individual incentive travel was rated even higher as a motivational award at 96% versus 84% last year. 

 

The key to maximizing success (and limiting risk) is for marketers to better understand how their audiovisual team works. 

It is almost event day. You are excited, but you are also stressed.

You have spent the last few months preparing for your live stream: that big product launch, quarterly Town Hall, or video conference that your boss needs to go well. Your marketing and communications teams have been working hard, and everything appears ready.

 

Everybody loves to talk about welcoming change. Then change happens, and whew, it’s tough. After the past few years, meetings and events professionals certainly appreciate that feeling, but they’re also feeling energized by so many new ways for attendees to gather.
