Dear members and colleagues,
We hope you are doing well in these challenging times.
Curate is an exclusive benefit for Organizational Member companies of HSMAI. Executives from these companies have the rare and unique opportunity to discuss emerging industry trends and issues while engaging with each other in a highly interactive format.
This year’s Curate will, for the first time, be Virtual. We have decided to do 2 days of 2 hours each:
More about the two days:
Part 1: Tuesday November 3rd 2020 from 10am CET – 12pm CET
Future Of Events. ln collaboration with Cvent
Ahead of our interactive session, the moderator will be presenting the very first findings of the new HSMAI Europe Event survey. We are proud to introduce Cvent’s Head of European Sales, Graham Pope as the moderator. He will reveal new data and insights from over 700 European planners into how they feel about the future of meetings and events. In addition to providing an exclusive look at Cvent’s exclusive planner sentiment survey, Graham will showcase new technologies which can help hospitality professionals better collaborate with planners.
We kindly ask you to spend three minutes filling out this survey we will be presenting: “Future of Events”
Part 2: Wednesday November 4th from 10am CET – 12pm CET
Creating a more diverse and transparent hospitality industry. In collaboration with Google Europe
In light of racial inequality issues that have surfaced recently let’s think about ways the industry can encourage better race-related transparency within countries. Travel can be incredibly difficult simply because of the colour of your skin.
Governments often give advice on travelling to other countries if you’re LGBT, or simply in terms of things like terror threat, or corruption index, etc, but there’s no information for people based on race. As a result one of the most frequently searched for things on Google is sadly about racism levels in countries as people from minority backgrounds try to piece together if that country is a welcoming place to travel.
With this Curate we will put a bit of pressure on the industry to provide more transparency around race and equality when travelling, and through transparency, countries can be spurred into action and education.
We kindly ask you to spend three minutes filling out this survey: “Diversity as an employer of talent within the hotel, event and travel industry”
