Commenting on the IBTM Americas Virtual Summit, Show Director David Hidalgo said: “The unprecedented situation with the effects of the pandemic has forced the business events industry to evolve quickly, accelerating the integration of technology into events, with a pivot to virtual events and a longer-term move towards the hybridization of events.

“This virtual summit will provide event professionals with insights and key learnings, invaluable as they adapt for the future. The event will also act as a means of bringing together our community in recognition of the fact human connections and shared experiences are central to our industry. Even though we can’t meet in person at IBTM Americas this year, we can still celebrate our continued passion for events.”
