The QHotels Event Profs Panel

Inspired by research showing a shift towards younger professionals entering the events industry, in 2016 we launched the QHotels Event Profs Panel. The aim of the panel is to bring bookers and organisers with less than five years' experience together, to help shape the future of the industry.

Our panel has attracted young professionals from major agencies and corporates within the events industry and our discussion findings have already grabbed the attention of the media and industry bodies, such as the HBAA.

Our panel members meet up regularly at QHotels to share their opinions on the industry's big issues, from attracting and retaining talented people and developing a career in events to tackling the industry's perception issues.

Interested in joining the panel?
We believe that with more voices, we can make greater change and welcome event profs with less than five years' experience to join the Event Profs Panel throughout 2017.  So if you work in events and are interested in having your say in the future of the industry, please drop us a line.  Email us  here to join.

 

You can read all about our Event Profs' views and the outcomes of our recent roundtable events in the reports below - which we hope will now encourage wider discussion and debate across the industry.
