Do not miss ECM new series of knowledge sharing, of best and next practice, of recovery planning and of celebrating the ECM community heroes. It’s about how we can use ECM community to build collaborative advantage by sharing, learning, meeting – and through that growing both as a community and as individual destinations and destination leaders.
Power of Community is for ECM members and by ECM members and we fully leverage the power of this community together.
