Cape Town. The lineup of exemplary speakers on hand for the 2013 AIPC Annual Conference in Cape Town, South Africa this coming July 1-3 will provide delegates with a comprehensive insight into how the country is emerging as a major factor in both the global economy and the meetings industry.
"We have valuable lessons to learn from emerging economies as we all face the need to rethink the ways we do business, and South Africa offers important experiences in this regard" says AIPC President Edgar Hirt. "The lessons from key leaders in this country will provide a context for sessions that will probe specifically into the role of meetings and centres today, and supply new ideas and insights for all our delegates."
Amongst the key speakers who will be presenting at the conference are Wendy Luhabe, one of South Africa's most accomplished business icons and social entrepreneurs, Daniel Silke, an independent political analyst specialising in South African and International politics and Thebe Ikalafeng, who is widely recognized as Africa's leading authority, thought leader, advisor, commentator and author on branding and reputation leadership.
"These are all individuals who have been on the front line of transition and growth in South Africa, and whose insights will enable our members to make the most of the experience they will get at the AIPC Conference", said Hirt. "This is exactly the kind of benefit our delegates are looking for in a destination, and will add immeasurably to our interactions and discussions."
