RESTRUCTURING TOURVEST IME FOR A STRONGER COMEBACK POST COVID-19
JOHANNESBURG | 07 OCTOBER 2020 –
Tourvest Incentives Meetings & Events recently endured a painful but necessary right-sizing of its manpower and in the process became a lean business towards surviving COVID-19 and hopes to reclaim its position as a dominant player in the MICE sector once again.
“COVID-19 has presented us with an opportunity to make deep, significant structural changes to our business model to ensure not only survival but also long term sustainability’’ said Thembi Kunene-Msimang, Chief Operating Officer at Tourvest Incentives Meetings & Events.
The most notable change implemented sees the promotion of key experts within the business, which secures their leadership position in the market:
Ms Laurinda Schroder becomes the General Manager for Marketing and Sales to help drive the growth of the business.
Ms Robyn Ireton becomes the General Manager for Incentives & Global Immersions where Tourvest Incentives Meetings & Events customises leadership programs for our clients and include high impact immersions.
Ms Janine Abrahams becomes the General Manager for Associations and Congresses. As an accredited Professional Conference Organiser (PCO), Tourvest Incentives Meetings & Events provides national and international congress management services for both Associations and Governments,
Ms Cherine Grow becomes the General Manager for Conferencing and Events who leads a team that expertly delivers extensive in-house corporate tailor-made event management packages.
The second key change meant securing technical support partnerships to assist them in customising their clients’ online eventing experience given the fact that virtual and online meetings and events are here to stay.
Regardless of the virtual meeting app the clients’ use – such as Zoom, Teams, Skype etc, by engaging Tourvest Incentives Meetings & Events to professionally produce virtual meeting, they are guaranteed an enhanced virtual experience with viewers, focusing on the content and the desired outcomes from that meeting.
Tourvest Incentives Meetings & Events handles all the hassle and the time-consuming frustrations of ensuring everyone logs onto the meeting through the correct links and at the correct time. They know that the client’s brand is very important and to the unprepared, or those that take these virtual meetings for granted, they can pose a significant threat to a brand and severely compromise its association with professionalism and brand-promise.
Tourvest Incentives Meetings & Events is committed to the professional delivery of online solutions and experiences that deliver and achieve the needs of their clients such as Online Team Building, Online Cocktail Events, Hybrid Conferences, Virtual Stands for Expos and Product Launches to name a few.
