In partnership with Marina Bay Sands, the new-look ‘Ideas Exchange’ will be specific to the MICE and travel industry.
Flight Centre’s FCM Meetings & Events, together with Marina Bay Sands, will launch a new-look ‘Ideas Exchange’ that is specific to the MICE and travel industry, as part of its thought leadership series for 2022.
Based on the concept of a salon, the meetings and events arm of corporate travel brand FCM Travel, has curated a highly interactive experience that FCM Meetings & Events creative director Joshua Mason Browne said holds space for informal learning and discussion.
“Our aim is to inspire collaborative action and tackle the big questions together of where we are going to, next,” Browne said.
“The ‘Ideas Exchange’ is a new series of experiences connecting our customers, event partners and thought leaders together for a dinner gathering, with purpose. It’s a facilitated, robust discussion series, and I’m excited for the opportunity to take on the role as guest facilitator”.
FCM Meetings & Events general manager Simone Seilor said one of the most exciting aspects was that the event would be taking place in-person.
“We know businesses have been starved of seeing their employees, clients, and potential future customers – we’re delighted to be able to offer the opportunity for true non-virtual collaboration for the first time in a long time,” Seiler said.
“The power of being able to interact on a personal basis can’t be underestimated and the constant feedback we’ve received is that professionals have achieved more in a day of face-to-face activities than they would in a month’s worth of Zoom and Teams meetings.
“Everyone at the table will have the opportunity to address burning questions, exchange, and share ideas, and we already have some fantastic brands in attendance.
“We’re really excited to deliver our three chapter markers of; community and purpose, technology and content culture, and audience confidence.”
The invitation-only, in-person event will take place at Alexandria’s The Venue in Sydney on the evening of Thursday, 3 March 2022.
