News: Sundial Group Sponsors IACC Future Leaders Lunch
23 Nov 2012
Sundial Group was delighted to sponsor the International Association of Conference Centre's (IACC) Future Leaders lunch this November, at Lensbury Conference Centre in Teddington, Middlesex.
The lunch was a new IACC initiative, inviting event management students from Greenwich University to meet with key industry leaders.
The initiative was designed to enable students to better understand the role of the IACC and to give them an opportunity to put questions to influential industry leaders face-to-face. The delegates were welcomed by Mark Cooper, the IACC's CEO.
Industry leaders themselves (attending from a wide variety of backgrounds) also had much to gain from the experience; insight and ideas into what students saw as the future of the sector, as well as what they are looking for from future employers. Examples of some of the development ideas discussed were ambitions for 'iconic' shorter session meetings and a desire for opportunities to exercise their philanthropic beliefs when attending meetings.
Mark Cooper stated, "feedback from emerging industry leaders is essential as we step into a new era for IACC and for the in the meetings industry. Their evaluations, observations, and contributions will continue to help us shape the future and to continue to provide exceptional meeting experiences around the globe."
The lunch formed part of the wider IACC European Annual General Meeting and Conference ‘Turning Imagination into Innovation'; a platform designed to fuel discussions on the future of conferencing amongst key industry players with the ambition to create exceptional meeting experiences.
Sundial is proud to be a long-standing founder member and supporter of the IACC, with Sundial's CEO Tim Chudley a past Global President.
