Business events have always been drivers of change, for participants, industries, and wider global communities; however the world continues to shift in ways that make it both more important and more difficult to execute this level of impact.
The continued pandemic recovery coupled with geopolitical pressures are complicating everything from sourcing and staffing logistics to practical safety, leading to an increased balancing act for event organizers — who must deliver business value while also heeding the imperative to be conscientious.
