Isolation in a world of Instant Connectivity
One of the Emerging Challenges to be Addressed by ACETA in 2017
Entertainment technology needs to be heard, seen, experienced, serviced and supported for effective acquisition outcomes, usually not possible in the virtual and faceless domain. Most agree if we are to prevail in the face of borderless trading, the buying power of international competitors and questionable practises, our local industry needs to strengthen by addressing core skills and improve individual and organisational effectiveness. In addition, a number of progressive thinkers have suggested the potential in sharing resources with compatible organisations, some even see the wisdom in strengthening by amalgamation. This narrative will be of interest to most ACETA constituents be they manufacturers, distributors, retailers or service providers, as any individual or organisation is empowered by enhanced communication, organisational and time management capabilities not to mention effective strategic planning and the expansion of networks. ACETA has determined a pro-active response:
In light of the aforementioned landscape and to meet the expressed needs of the industry, all roads lead to the establishment of an Industry Convention one focussed on individual and corporate development. Therefore, ACETA is pleased to announce the inaugural Australian Commercial Entertainment Technology Industry Convention is scheduled to be held in May 2018, this will be confirmed along with more specific details at the ACETA AGM in May 2017. It is envisaged that this inaugural event will establish an annual staple on the industry calendar and a tool for prosperity. Whilst the exploratory process has only just begun, we can advise that the convention will take place in both a work and social setting and there will be no trade show (sell-fest) component, the focus is totally on personal and corporate development covering many topics presented in numerous and varied formats. Participation will be available to all ACETA members and associate members.
Please note this initiative is an additional ACETA program and does not supersede or take precedence over any other program. As we are in the formative stage we really welcome your comments at firstname.lastname@example.org.
All the best
