International Special Events Society (ISES) have launched a new 'International Web Portal for the Global Creative Events Industry' with features designed to provide a go-to source where creative event professionals can find answers, make connections and discuss today’s critical issues in a format that delivers updates that matter specifically to them.
The portal, located at ises.com, includes the following features:
ISES Marketplace allows members to showcase their products and services to event buyers from all over the world with detailed descriptions, photos and links.
ISES Community, which includes Higher Logic, an online tool where members can connect with colleagues, join conversations and discover new trends and issues through online communities including Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn.
Inspiration Central provides an online library of ideas, examples and case studies where anyone involved in the creative events industry can go for inspiration and to learn best practice.
ISES International President, Brian Acheson, commented: “Our new web portal has been designed to provide members with improved tools and resources to help them get the most out of their relationship with ISES, and we have invested further to ensure that the wider creative events sector around the world can use ises.com to locate people and assets that can support their work, learn through best practice and ultimately improve the standing of the creative events professional.”
The new portal, which has taken two years to develop, will also launch dedicated micro sites for individual Chapters over the next 18 months.
