 Connecting The Dots:  What Does All The
Disruption Mean From A Strategic View

The year of 2019 is like no other we have seen in decades.  From disruption of technological forces that are changing the way we work and play to changes in Washington which will take time to understand its full impact, it is important to understand the context of what is taking place.  The speed of change is a force that we will all wrestle with over the next decade.

As the economic environment and hotel structure continue to change at a rapid pace, it is important to understand the current outlook, economic concerns and forecasts that will dictate behavior in all business environments.  The impacts of global political and economic instability still exist although the global economy is growing together for the first time in modern history.

Our world has become much more complex with a variety of issues from, cyber security, meetings advocacy, behavioral changes and Health & Wellness leading the charge. In this dynamic session, industry veteran Michael Dominguez shares the latest trends in the hotel industry and how they affect your meetings and incentives. 

Gain a better understanding of the economic environment, how structural changes will have an impact in 2019 and beyond, identify ways to optimize your ability to maneuver through this quickly changing environment.  We will also explore the internal and external forces that will continue to pressure meeting design, content dissemination and the need to understand we no longer have attendees, but rather participants in meetings.

Learner Objectives:

  • Understand the need to move fast in changing organizational structure
  • Take a look at the impact of global political and economic forecasts
