The Global Alliance group of conference and exhibition centres, which comprises five venues on four continents, has launched a research committee to further enhance its seamless conferencing service across its member venues.
Global Alliance venues include: The Durban International Convention Centre (South Africa); Adelaide Convention Centre (Australia); Centro Banamex (Mexico); ACC Liverpool (United Kingdom); Boston Convention & Exhibition Center and Hynes Convention Center (United States of America).
The dedicated research committee, which includes a representative from each Global Alliance member venue, will work together to share ideas, exchange leads and research events which rotate across the globe that could benefit from Global Alliance’s seamless conferencing service.
Integral to the research committee’s role is the qualified lead exchange process. When submitting leads, each destination provides key information needed to start the bidding process for an event including: contact details for the event, how to obtain the Request for Proposal (RFP), financial criteria, venue requirements such as space and delegate information like travel and hotel requirements.
Global Alliance’s Chair and Chief Executive Officer of the Durban International Convention Centre (ICC), Julie-May Ellingson, says: “Global Alliance was designed to benefit clients organising international events that rotate around the world by transferring a detailed understanding of a particular congress or event requirements to the next host convention centre.
“The dedicated research committee is integral to this process. In sharing knowledge with each member venue, the research committee will create a consolidated approach to winning global events and further strengthening our seamless conferencing service.”
