MICE Onboard 1: Fun and Frivolous?
Cruise ships today promise a mind-boggling array of fun activities and entertainment all under one roof. While these are perfect lures for a corporate incentive programme, how will fun-filled cruise ships sit with planners of solemn corporate meetings and conferences which are also a segment cruise companies are keen to attract? Can cruise ships truly be a serious contender for a wide range of solemn corporate gatherings?

MICE Onboard 5: Leaving Minimal Trail Behind
Cruise companies have been blamed for massive air and marine pollution left behind by their giant cruise ships. But more cruise companies are taking big steps to correct that reputation, plus deploy stricter waste management onboard. As more corporates demand suppliers and business partners to be aligned with their own CSR beliefs, will adopting more environmentally-friendly procedures help cruise companies get the booker’s nod?

Keynote Lecture
In Collaboration With Chiang MICE

Sustainability - Future Proofing Your Business
Sustainability issues today present challenges for business, government and society that cannot be solved alone. Solving these challenges often require partnerships between private and public sectors and development of multi-stakeholder initiatives and solutions. This keynote explores what is needed for your business to be sustainable, how we can share success and accelerate our ambition to meet the future needs of customers, while at the same time commit to protecting the natural environment. Speakers on the panel will also share their insights on four key topics: Digitizing business for the future, Environmental conservation, Community based tourism, and Investing in sustainable businesses.

Association Development – Investing in a Sustainable Future
Hosted by Gaining Edge

Associations play a critical role in helping drive the development of knowledge economies. They provide collaborative forums for discussion, knowledge sharing, innovation, discovery and creation. A strong community of associations benefits economic development and growth. Through hosting international conventions, they also help to promote local innovation and exports to a global audience. This session explores how countries across the Asia Pacific are starting to give due recognition to this sector and the initiatives supporting association development. It also looks at what support exists to encourage associations to bid for and host international conventions.

Keeping International Association Meetings Relevant
Hosted by IAPCO

International association meetings are going through fundamental changes – in the race for relevance, they have to compete with more regional approaches to conferences, while navigating through compliance issues and fundraising challenges.

In this session, we will look at the latest developments in international association meetings and will highlight some best practices from around the world.
