Leadership principles during a pandemic: The resilience of Jaarbeurs

December 7, 2021

As an international organisation, Jaarbeurs had to deal with the implications of the COVID pandemic at an early stage, and therefore also had more time than many exhibition and event organizations to prepare for a crisis period. Despite this, the organization was hit hard in the first year. Now that the world is opening up and events are allowed again, it's time to revitalize. What does this require of you as a leader?

  • Small scaled peer session
  • This meeting is part of the Flevum Leaders Network programme
  • Open Dialogue by means of the Chatham House Rule

Albert Arp, Jaarbeurs
