Description: Key Trends for 2017 and Success Strategies for Planners in the Shared Economy This session will provide an overview of key trends for organizations going into 2017 with a special focus on the impact of the sharing economy on the events and exhibition industry. Whether it’s Airbnb, Uber or Sharing Cities Network, the sharing economy is creating new business models and forcing for-profit

businesses to adapt or fall behind. The same will hold true for the exhibition and events industry without the right strategies and plans. Born out of the recession and developing values, the sharing economy has evolved into a formidable movement. The list of companies active in the sharing economy is long, growing, and global. It touches all sectors, and utilizes network-enabled sharing to connect users and reduce hassle and costs. The sharing economy’s “triple bottom line” (financial, environmental, and social) aligns well with exhibition and events industry and there are already success stories. Exhibition and event professionals are just now at the precipice of embracing the sharing economy are are working understand how this economy will impact exhibition and event design, implementation, execution and strategies to extend networks and connect people and resources. Our industry has yet to tap into the full potential of the sharing economy. This session will explain what the sharing economy is, its implication on the exhibition and events industry and what organizers can do to leverage the shared economy for greater success.
