The COVID-19 pandemic has required all of us to keep our distance physically, and although things are slowly getting under control, it is still too early to be planning big gatherings. This also means that we will not be hosting our annual Inspirational Tour as usual. We are obviously sad about this after having hosted no less than seven successful stages during the last three years – bringing hundreds of media people together for a full day of knowledge sharing and networking.
We do, however, find it very important that we use alternative ways to stay connected. That’s why we’ve decided to host a virtual Inspirational Tour on October 1st. In other words, we are tapping into the “new normal” which is very much characterized by video meetings and social distancing – without compromising with the great benefit of learning from each other.
The new format also has some logistic advantages as it will allow us to give the event a more international touch with focus on cross-national best practices. We are looking forward to try out this format, and we can guarantee that you will be left with plenty of food for thought:
Save the date!
Join us for an inspirational day of insights, valuable discussions and social distancing. By signing up now, you will be among the first to know about the program once it falls into place.
When: Thursday, October 1st
Time: 10:00 - 12:30 CEST
