    In April, ILEA hosted its first ever Global Event Summit in Scotland with Global Partner, Visit Scotland, serving as host and IMEX, CVent and Visit Great Britain as sponsors. The summit looked at four key topics that will be driving change in our industry and impacting how we do business: How the sharing economy is shaping the event business; science and technology and their impact on guests; harnessing the cultural power of a global society; and delivering confidence in a security-conscious eventscape. A white paper was developed on the key takeaways of that summit, but that was just the beginning! Be a part of the ongoing discussion as a panel of 2016 Summiters revisit crucial topics to our industry and open up the debate to the entire ILEA Live audience. You might just change your future—and ours.
