  • HQ #95 - August 2020 Edition

    Cover Image:
    Summary:

    Here we are again, in the middle of August, while we have already learned to normalise pieces of an apparent dystopia. No meetings, no travels, associations cut in half and new working methods streamlined at a distance.
    This experience economy, to which our entire community and partners dedicate their activity and talent, remains at the rear of our possibilities, but if we reach any conclusion in HQ#95, it's this: virtual events are not a substitute for face-to-face meetings.

    In our summer edition, we added a new chapter to the Coronavirus VS MICE section with a long essay on the aviation sector, information on convention bureaus around the world and an interview with the digital platform, Interprefy.

    In our section dedicated to associations, we looked at why your association is today more important than ever, how to prepare for post-pandemic challenges and how essential it is to have a strong brand strategy in 2020.
    We had a chat with the International Live Events Association and the European Business Aviation Association and Jeffer London asked: "Are you as agile as your members?

  • HQ #94 - May 2020 edition

    Cover Image:
    Summary:

    The Covid-19 pandemic crisis and the resulting lockdown caught us off guard and the effects were felt gigantically in our industry. Associations, agencies, bureaus, companies and other stakeholders continue to resist the pressure of the general shutdown and to reinvent new business flows and digital alternatives with ambitious returns.

    It was therefore inevitable to include in this May issue a very special chapter exclusively dedicated to this outbreak and its impact on the meetings industry. There you can read exclusive interviews with various destination suppliers, the point of view of associations in their collective future and the financial consequences of the novel Coronavirus so far. Don't miss it!

    Within our central topic of "Sustainability", we talked to the International Emissions Trading Association (page 6) and Future Earth (page 28) on how to guide positive changes in the era of climate action; we welcomed the CEO of Cohesion Collective, Rory Gluckman (page 44), to our pages with a fascinating article on how to manage talent in leadership spheres and went to visit wonderful places like Montréal, Zurich, New Zealand or Macao.

    Without missing the joint Campaign on the 20 Women Who Advance Associations (page 40) in 2020 in partnership with Interel.

  • HQ #93 - February 2020 edition

    Cover Image:
    Summary:

    For this edition, HQ decided to focus on what to do in order to keep a fresh vision.

    "New blood for old boards" is about getting the next generation of association leaders to join the board, how to ensure diversity.

    "Cultural diversity" is about the authentic experiences and cultural programmes that a destination can offer, from nature to the immersive power of arts.

    Just to give you an idea: read how to build communities within and around your sector (page 38), the glorious opportunities you may discover (page 40), instructions for overcoming your fears (page 52)... We hope you'll find the inspirations you are looking for.
