Deborah Sexton, president/CEO of the Professional Convention Management Association talks industry trends in this HED talk
Hilton Worldwide Meetings & Events is proving that the MICE industry has plenty of ideas worth spreading. A new HED Talks (Hilton Elevated Discussions) video initiative tackles everything from cloud-based event planning and eRFP systems to building connections and virtual meetings, providing meetings and events planners with thought leadership from industry influencers such as Roger Dow, president/CEO of the U.S. Travel Association and Deborah Sexton, president/CEO of the Professional Convention Management Association.
Hilton Worldwide’s Senior VP of Sales for the Americas, Mark Komine says HED ties into the company’s broader “Connect philosophy,” which revolves around the power of human interactions.
“With HED Talks, we put that philosophy into action. These videos focus on topic areas we know meeting, event and travel planners want and need in order to engage and create memorable connections. We’ll continue to expand our Hilton Elevated Discussions library as industry trends evolve and change.”
Komine believes that Hilton HED Talks is ultimately a community where planners, coordinators and other industry insiders can access best practices, tips, fresh ideas and inspiration from both their peers and other industry thought leaders. “Our goal is to understand what’s important to our customers– tools, solutions and ideas. Hilton Elevated Discussions allow viewers to consume those insights and industry learnings from a diverse group of experts in a quick, easy-to-digest way.”
