    • Local, National, International Every service provider is part of a local, national and international market. For any of these markets, if 2008 meant 100% and 2009 means 50%, there are three scenarios for the service provider: the same market share from a much smaller market; the same turnover = double the market share; bigger turnover = more than double the market share; In some cases, at a given budget, the attendants have possibility to choose the location. A delegation of more than 30 exporting companies made the choice to exhibit at Systems Fair in Munich instead of Gitex in Dubai based on the fact that “ Munich is much closer, and in Dubai is too hot”. Their choice didn’t have any economical base (leads, clients, just their personal comfort). How important is the Social Networking in development of businesses from the MICE industry?

    • Company’s Policy for Social Networking Some companies even encourage the employees to perform social networking activities. The threat is the border between private and professional life. Social networking is something people (employees) want to be involved in. I recommend company written policies to avoid future problems. Take very good care for the content you publish! When a known or hidden competitor wants to monitorize your activity will request your friendship or connection in a social network and will have access to everything you publish: new projects, your views regarding happenings in the market. KEEP ANY CONFIDENTIAL OR STRATEGIC INFORMATION AWAY FROM SOCIAL MEDIA SITES! Anybody will basic psychologic knowledge will read between your posts and will know if you are satisfied with the job, if you want something new, how is the boss, how are the colleagues, how well works the company, if you see the future in white or black, so, take care!
