Read Rod Cameron's report on the 2017 Politicians Forum, including highlights from Professor Greg Clark's keynote and discussions during the Forum. From how city development has benefitted from the meetings industry in areas such as employment, connectivity and diversity, to how governments and the meetings industry can work together to implement successful development strategies.
Our sponsors on why they support the Policy Forum.
This industry is growing, it is sophisticated and substantial and it has very broad and deep benefits for the places that host it. It's an ‘advanced industry’ with its own research and development, standards, talent development strategies, investment tools, and innovation systems. It has important linkages with other industries and it provides capabilities for many of the globalising and innovating sectors in the world today.Professor Greg Clark, Policy Forum Keynote
