GSN Meeting at the GSS
Global Trends in the Meetings Industry
What you don’t know will cost you in the global speaking business. How to get the answers you need to successfully navigate the new dynamics and the winds of change in the meetings industry.
Join us for the presentation of the finding from the 2011 Economic Significance Study recently released by the Convention Industry Council (CIC). The CIC and its member organizations, representing the full scope of the meetings, conventions, exhibitions and events industry, commissioned this important research effort.
The study’s results provide common data and language that all stakeholders can use to articulate the economic power that meetings represent and the value of face-to-face events and extend the United Nations World Tourism Organization efforts to track meeting and event activity, thereby influencing major global organizations to understand the hard and soft value of the global face-to-face events sectors.
The Convention Industry Council’s Chairman of the Board, Stacy Tetschner, CAE will present the findings and facilitate an interactive panel of international speakers exploring the response to change that professional speakers must address to maintain relevance in the new global reality.

The Global Speakers Network (GSN) is a networking community of professional speakers, within the Global Speakers Federation, who speak internationally on a consistent basis – that is they speak for a professional fee at a minimum of two times a year in two countries other than their country of residence.
The purpose of the GSN is to create and encourage networking and idea-sharing opportunities for its international membership, specifically focused on issues of interest for those speaking globally. By providing a forum for those actively engaged in speaking in countries other than their residence, critical and practical information is shared in a timely manner.
