|Berlin 2014: Presidentís Invitation
One of my most pleasurable duties as the new President of AIPC is to invite you and your staff to participate in our 2014 Annual Conference and General Assembly, which this time around will be taking place in the historic and high-energy city of Berlin. And to make things even more interesting, it will be located in an entirely new and innovative facility – the CityCube - which will have just been completed in time for our event!
Together, Berlin and the CityCube will provide the perfect backdrop to our most important and valuable annual gathering - an invaluable opportunity as usual to combine the kind of professional level educational content and networking with global colleagues that has distinguished AIPC as a leading organization in our industry.
While it is always a challenge to predict economic conditions in the world today, it is probably safe to say that our Conference will be taking place against a backdrop of gradual economic recovery with all the new variables that will arise from that process. Accordingly, we will be organizing our program around the concept of new directions for centres in recognition of how an evolving industry is creating both challenges and opportunities to which we will all have to respond.
The AIPC Annual Conference has come to be seen as delivering the most focussed and senior level program available to centre managers today, and this coming year will be no exception. Come prepared to both learn and contribute as we collectively set our course into a new phase of industry development!
I look forward to seeing and sharing the experience with you there!
Make your plans now to attend this important event now, and track all the new developments in the program by returning to the Annual Conference web site for ongoing updates.
