New Advisory Board for Event Marketing

Next week HSMAI in Norway will have its first meeting with their brand new Advisory Board on Event Marketing.

Attention to overall communication ranks high on HSMAI’s agenda. Bearing in mind that events have become an increasingly important element for our members and their clients,” says Ingunn Hofseth (right), HSMAI Europe’s President and CEO. HSMAI is now calling for potential members for its Advisory Board for Events Marketing in Europe.

Call for advisory board members in Europe

Their contribution will include the recognition of and focus on meeting and events as a vital part of  industry’s strategy. With this initiative HSMAI wants to further reinforce and profesionalise the industry – a process that finds itself in its initial stages in Norway, where a 17-member advisory board commence its work next week.

Needless to say, this facilitates the possibility of a Pan-European cooperation, speerheaded by HSMAI Europe’s Event Marketing Advisory Board to be.
