Bea World Festival

Theme & Programme


Bea World is your once in a year opportunity to stay up-to-date with the changing landscape of live communication. See the world’s best-in-class events live, develop your business and network and learn all you need from leading experts for your future success.

The theme “The Nature of Events” will determine the content of the whole Live Communication Week 2019 and particularly the educational programme of Bea World Festival on 29 November .

The world of events is an ecosystem, a living creature that evolves by exchanging emotions, energy and essence with the external environment. As such, humanity is faced with an ever-growing need for cooperation and sustainability. Cross-border, cross-community and cross-culture collaboration is on the daily agenda. Our events need to dig into this changing landscape and mirror the way our society develops. Our industry needs to keep up with, or even lead, the fast pace of this change.

At Bea World Festival, speakers from both inside and outside the events industry will talk about the why, how and what of cooperation, which is The Nature of Events. A wide variety of workshops will be offered to meet participants’ needs and interests, and to boost their creativity, emotional experience and learning. Through a highly interactive and engaging programme, every attendee will become a true participant. Just like you would expect in this era of co-creativity.
