A stellar line-up of sector leaders are confirmed to discover the latest trends moving the events industry at the inaugural gathering of The Incentive Conference & Event Society – The ICE Conference – to be held in Bali, November 12-14, 2014. The event has been designed to ensure engagement between the different levels of the industry, keeping the corporate clients’ feedback and input at the very center, while building an opportunity to learn the latest trends and tools to help streamline MICE business.
