Planning ahead for IMEX Frankfurt –taking place on May 15.17–, CEO Carina Bauer has revealed the Talking Point for 2018: Legacy. In her own words, this theme, which points to be the evident evolving concept, is “a shift away from planning an event around a ‘single moment in time’ towards planning an event with longer-lasting, more meaningful impacts”.
So true to an industry that has seen monumental changes in the last 5 years. Legacy understood as the willingness to take part of a higher purpose, to leave a footprint on what we do –knowing that any effort, as little as it may appear in the beginning, it ends up adding to a greater mission–, to pursue a positive impact on what we start up.
We are now embracing the unavoidable mission and responsibility to inherit core values, to add value and to value what we have to offer in the stakes of a grand mission.
So let us state, as the motto reads: “Legacy: What’s yours going to be?”
We will be surely looking forward to find out more as IMEX keeps announcing more news.
