Dear members and partners,
2016; wow what a year!
The start of the alliance, heavy traveling, energzing meetings, inspiring events, interviews, publications and lots of exposure. Our first major project, the Alliance European Industry Survey, promises to be a valuable tradition for the alliance and the industry. Can't wait to take the alliance, together with you all, to the next level!
For now, I wish you a wonderful Christmas and happy and healthy New Year.
Thanks for your trust and support and see you all soon.
Best regards, Maarten
Members: the reason for existence of our alliance | We started supported by six members: ACC (Belgium), AEVEA (Spain), APECATE (Portugal), EVCOM (UK), IDEA (Netherlands) and NAOM (Russia). Followed by LEVENEMENT (France) in May. Thank you all!
Welcoming new members in 2017 | I'm very happy and proud to announce the membership of FAMAB (Germany) and EMBA (Austria). A great way to start 2017. Welcome to our new members!
Spread the word and stay tuned | I invite all of you to share your alliance membership with the world; inform and involve your local media partners. Please use the 'member of logo' in your communication and various other logo's, visuals and infographics for promotion. And like our FaceBook page, follow us on Twitter and join our LinkedIn group. Stay tuned!
PR & Exposure | You can find several interviews, publications and press releases at the 'press & publications' section on our website. Besides online and offline publications, we had live exposure during the following events: AEVEA & Co in Madrid (June), Live.Meeting Amsterdam (August) and Event Show in Moscow (September). Besides these events I represented the alliance in the Eubea jury this year.
LiveCom Connect needs you | Building a strong and working community needs more than a couple of live meetings every year. It's crucial to be connected online too. This 'members only' online platform unites us in an interactive way. But it's up to you now. Use it! And let's make this an inspiring and lively platform for all of us.
What's up for 2017?! | You will be invited for a small survey before the end of the year. Please share your thoughts, ideas and vision about next years priorities and activities. You also will be invited to apply for board membership and to host our first 'industry meet & greet' (an inspiring market and networking event by one of our members).
European Industry Survey; a valuable tradition is born | During Eubea festival we presented the results of the first edition of the European Industry Survey. Our press release and infographic were picked up widely and gained lots of PR. We will share our thoughts and main questions for the 2017 edition soon, in order for you to add them to your next local survey.
On behalve of the alliance, I wish you a wonderful Christmas and a happy, healthy and GLOCAL 2017!
