The Need to be Decisively Indecisive: Understanding Behavioral Changes for the Meetings and Events Industry

The pandemic forced all of us to experience so many learnings, twists, and forks in the road. As we start to emerge into a clearer future, there has never been a greater need for you to be Decisively Indecisive. 

"Affective Forecasting," the psychological study of how one feels into the future is front and center after 2020. The experience of 2020 has absolutely been unexpected, uncertain, and devastating in many ways. We now face a world, country, economy, and industry traveling a road much less traveled as we begin to restart our global commerce engine and hospitality industry.

What will be the long-term changes in our industry? What were the silver linings to come out of this challenging time? It is important to know where to look and more importantly to not overthink what may or may not be structural in change.

This session will help identify the questions we should be asking, as we know the next 18 months will set the course on where we end up with permanent behavioral changes to the Meetings & Events Industry.
