Palermo hosts the second edition of EuBea Advisory Board
As we eagerly wait to meet for the second European Festival of Events, which will take place in Seville next November (5th-7th), ADC Group has made arrangements for international journalists and representatives of companies and associations in Europe to gather on June 5th at the Domina Coral Bay Hotel & Resort Sicilia Zagarella. Here, for two days, we shall discuss the Festival’s timetable and ‘must-have’ content.
The ‘EuBea Festival – The International Festival of Live Events and Communication’, the European appointment for training and discussion aimed at the events market, now in its second edition, will be held once again in Seville, Spain, from November 5th to 7th. Like last year, the two days will include Jury sessions for the international EuBea Awards, workshops dedicated to the meetings industry and the Awards Ceremony of the best events in Europe.
In order to define the Festival’s details and procedures, as well as the industry’s trends and hot topics to be discussed and studied through workshops and training sessions during the event, ADC Group has organised for about twenty representatives of the most prestigious companies, European trade associations and international journalists, a meeting on June 5th, at the Domina Coral Bay Hotel & Resort Sicilia Zagarella.
Throughout the weekend’s gathering, participants will debate on the organisational aspects of the event, providing important suggestions and ideas for deliberation on the most diverse issues: from voting methods to audience involvement, from award categories to up-to-the-minute industry topics. For the occasion, Domina Hotels and the DMC Tour Plus have provided an exclusive tour of the city and in particular of the Teatro Massimo and the Palatine Chapel.
