Next week, from February 14 to 15, CONVENE takes place in Vilnius, Lithuania. Like every year, the exhibition offers a highly professional education programme. Part of the programme are the “Meet the Expert” sessions that give participants an opportunity to ask featured experts specific questions and engage in discussions in a less formal setting.

Johanna Fischer, Managing Director at tmf dialogue marketing, is one of those experts. She will give you advice and guidance on two different topics:

1. “The Power of 1.3 Billion: Why the Indian MICE Market Continues to Grow Exponentially!”
(Wednesday, 14 February, 14:10-14:30, Table 2)

A growing economy and an increasing desire to host different types of meetings and congresses make the Indian MICE market one of great potential. Johanna Fischer will be available to share insights and discuss potential solutions to tap into one of the world’s fastest-growing economies.

2. Destination Marketing in the Comfort Zone? 
(Thursday, 15 Feburary, 12:10-12:30, Table 2)

How to stay relevant in times of new technologies, strict data protection, and overall saturated planners. In this session we discuss the feasibility of any new ideas you might have and how we can help stepping out of the comfort zone to stay in touch with your planners markets.
