"At Global, our focus is to be both proactive and strategic in our response to the short, medium and long term requirements of our travel clients and partners. We need the ability to identify category, client and business objectives before they even appear on a marketing brief. The Convention is the perfect opportunity to hear from industry experts about the macro and micro challenges (and opportunities) for the year ahead."
