Round Table: Here’s to the Future – Inspiration for the Next Generation
Location: Room 3
Chaired by: Rachel Haughey, Four Corners of the World Ltd (UK)
For years we have been talking (and worrying) about the education/training of the next generation of production people. In fact, the next generation are now well into their 30s, and there are plenty of twenty-somethings shaping up to put their mark on the production industry.
During this round table, we’ll give a voice to the younger generations and provide them with the opportunity to discuss their visions for the future of event production. We’ll hear about their inspirational stories, learn which projects they have in the pipeline and perhaps most importantly, how they think we should go about creating a more sustainable future for this industry not to mention the rest of the planet. And in order to limit CO2 emissions and to set an example to the older generations a number of our panellists will be participating via the miracle of modern technology.
