ECIA Releases Latest ‘Channel Channel’ Podcast Episode
Executive Conference Co-Chairs Share ‘Behind the Scenes’ Look at Planning for 2022 Program

ATLANTA – ECIA’s ‘Channel Channel’ podcast is a fascinating discussion about the process of planning the 2022 Executive Conference, which will take place October 23-25 at the Loews Chicago O'Hare Hotel after a two-year hiatus due to the Covid pandemic.

Hosted by ECIA’s Director of Marketing Communications and Member Engagement, Stephanie Tierney, the podcast features Conference Chair Robert Derringer, Crouzet and Co-Chair Tobi Cornell, Kruvand Associates who discuss how Toby inspired the theme, the importance of in-person events, the results of the survey conducted to gain insights into current member information needs, a sneak peek into the program and much more.

This year’s theme, “Bucking Normal: The Resilient Thrive Through Disruption” – reflects the growing realization in the industry that there likely will be no ‘return to normal’ after several years of global disruption. The concept of status quo and stability has been shattered by the disruptive events of these past few years. Learning how to thrive in this environment is imperative and successful companies must find ways to increase their ability to react quickly to one unforeseen event after another.

Registration and sponsorship opportunities are now open.
