NEWSFLASH September 2017

Dear Reader!

Usually the month of September is all about preparations for IMEX America and we do so this year as well. But at the same time, we’re stunned by the damage to our planet and its people that nature is causing recently. My heartfelt sympathy is out with all of those being directly or indirectly touched by the many natural catastrophes we’re seeing at the moment – the devastation caused by category 4 hurricane Harvey in Texas; hurricane Irma having literally destroyed some Caribbean Islands, the north shore of Cuba where it hit as a category 5 hurricane and now devastating Florida; and now hurricane Maria – as I am writing this made landfall on the island Dominica as a category 5 hurricane leaving devastation and is now threatening to hit the next islands on its course - a second extremely strong hit to some islands already devastated by Irma; not to forget the terrifying earthquake in Mexico with a magnitude of more than 8 – but also the horrible situation the extremely heavy monsoon season in south-east Asia has brought into this region where the massive flooding’s are much worse than those caused by Harvey and Irma.

While it is difficult to identify the impact of man-made climate change, global warming/climate change will bring more catastrophes, such as hurricanes Harvey and Irma, simply because the Atlantic waters are heating up during the hottest season in the region – and just 1 or 1.5 degrees of higher water temperature makes a huge difference in hurricane strength.

Isn’t it time to think of what we - in the sense of every single one of us – might do to help stop or at least slow down this effect? Certainly, once we think carefully about it – we’ll find some of the small things we can do to be more environmentally conscious – and most of the little changes don’t even reduce our own personal quality of life.

We’ll catch up on the impacts to our industry in the different regions touched by these catastrophes and keep you updated when information becomes available. Should you possess latest information – please share it with us!

Meanwhile, we’re bringing several hosted buyer events to your notice – you are most welcome to apply for these programmes. These include:

  • • World MICE Day in Qingdao, China, October 25 to 27
