Whitepaper „The Future Role and Purpose of Convention Bureaux“
A collective vision and roadmap for redefining the role of national convention bureaux in the coming decade. How can national convention bureaux best prepare for future crises and disruptions? How can we anticipate threats and opportunities and set ourselves up to create maximum value for our partners and stakeholders? How can we become more connected across borders, more collaborative across sectors, more resilient together? For a collective exploration of these questions, we came together as the Strategic Alliance of the National Convention Bureaux of Europe to create a shared vision of the convention bureau of the future. By focusing on roles and purposes, challenges and opportunities and skills and qualifications relevant in the year 2030, our aim is to help shape a future vision for national convention bureaux globally – including a roadmap of the most relevant tasks ahead.
