Association Forum and Fusion Productions Partner to Deliver digitalNow to the
Chicago-based Association Industry
CHICAGO, IL (July 29, 2016)—Association Forum and Fusion Productions have announced a unique partnership that provides association executives in the Chicago area with access to digitalNow content.
This first-of-its-kind agreement will result in a special collaboration between the two organizations that will deliver the presentation of digitalNow Chicago: Transforming Business Models. The event will be held Sept. 21, 2016, from 7:30 a.m. – noon at the OLC Learning Center in Rosemont, IL.
The content-rich event will feature a combination of video segments from some of the 2015 and 2016 digitalNow keynote speakers including Rachel Botsman, world-renowned global expert on collaboration, David Bell, leading expert on consumer behavior and Marc Randolph, co-founder of Netflix. Their perspectives will provide association executives with different approaches to the application of innovation in associations. Each video segment will be followed by a reactor panel of association executives and audience interaction.
Paul Pomerantz, MBA, president and CEO, American Society of Anesthesiologists and key leader in the development of this collaboration, stated, "digitalNow Chicago is an opportunity to provide access to innovative, cutting-edge and entrepreneurial concepts to advance associations. This partnership will provide the association community in Chicago a unique and applicable learning experience with insights from global business experts.”
“Whether it is individual or a team based approach, I know you will leave with both questions and answers on strategic approaches for implementing changes in associations." Pomerantz added,
“I’m incredibly thrilled to have this opportunity to provide our members and the association community in the Chicago area with access to some of the most highly rated content that was shared during these powerful and provocative keynote sessions,” said Michelle Mason, FASAE, CAE, president and CEO, Association Forum. “Associations are facing disruption from a variety of different sources. In order to continue to deliver value to our members and excel in the future, we must open ourselves up to new ways of thinking and prepare to transform our business models.”
Now in its 16th year, digitalNow has forged a reputation for exemplary education, networking and technology innovations exclusively for association leaders.
