We confess We believe in the encounter. Right now. We believe that people need to meet at events so that they can turn information into knowledge and ideas into innovations, and so that they can - yes, quite simply - reassure each other: Yes, we are still here... even if our business is down. In this humanity, in which the person moves before the function, "real" encounters are created. We get to know each other anew and recognize that there is no "keep it up" in the world of events, that we have to set out together to find new formats and business models. This requires the right information, partners and courage. We are digital The need for specialized information is greater than ever. We want to satisfy this need by increasing cross-media reporting and reaching our readers and users where they are - even in the home office. We have converted the editions of tw tagungswirtschaft from print to digital. The new series "Digital Talks" accompanies and deepens the topics that are on your mind. To keep you informed quickly, we have launched the information platform www.eventcrisis.org together with the German Convention Bureau (GCB). In order to change perspectives and promote young talent, we are reviving the student group #SocialSix. We continue to promote issues such as diversity and gender equality and, together with the IMEX Group and MPI - Meeting Professionals International, we are moving our conference "She Means Business" to the digital platform "PlanetIMEX".
