“Affective Forecasting”, the psychological study of
how one feels into the future is front and
center after 2020. The experience of 2020 has absolutely been unexpected, uncertain, and devastating in many ways. We now face a world, country, economy, and industry traveling a road much less
traveled as we begin to restart our global commerce engine and hospitality industry.
What will be the long-term changes in our industry? What were the silver linings to come out of this
challenging time? It is important to know where to look and more importantly to not overthink what may or may not be structural in change.
This session will help identify the questions
we should be asking as we know the next 18 months will set the course on where end up with permanent behavioral changes to the Meetings & Events Industry.
