BEA readers get 25 per cent discount to digitally attend Convening Asia Pacific

Get insider information on the strategies that industry experts and event leaders are using for their businesses to recover.

In support of professional development and getting the business events industry in APAC ready to restart the economy, BEA has partnered with the Professional Convention Management Association (PCMA) to offer a special rate for corporate and association event planners to attend the inaugural Convening Asia Pacific.

On Tuesday, 10 November 2020, PCMA is hosting a hybrid event for the APAC region, featuring renowned speakers from Google, The Entourage, George P. Johnson, Amway China, Jack Morton, Australian Grand Prix Corporation and more.

The content has been designed to address the outcomes of research that highlights the top needs of business events professionals today: reskilling and upskilling, designing event experiences and commercialisation in a digital space.

Six sessions called ‘Conversations with the Experts’ are exclusive for Digital/on-demand attendees. These deep dive sessions are with key regional experts to get updates on what they’re doing, including Bert Li from Amway China, Paula Rowntree from Royal Australian College of General Practitioners, Frankie Gao from MCI China, Deborah Caldwell from Bank of America, and Stephen Zhang from Manulife-Sinochem to name a few.

Karen Bolinger, Managing Director of PCMA APAC, said, “We want to make sure our digital attendees get a lot of value from the content and what better way than by giving them a chance to engage with the experts and their peers around the region in a personal way. 

“Through our APAC research, surveys and community chats with planners, what we’re hearing is that you want to ask your peers and customers what they are doing, how they’ve made decisions and what the next 12-months looks like. Now is your opportunity to ask them directly, as well as share some best practices and tips on rebuilding the business events sector in APAC,” said Ms Bolinger.
