The latest IMEX Global Insights Report predicts increases in both number of meetings to be held as well as available budgets. All good news.
More good news in the report includes, "Fears that increased financial pressures over the last 12 months would have caused Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) policy to take a back-seat were also allayed in this report. Respondents demonstrated high levels of appreciation for the importance of sustainable and environmentally-friendly practices. 42 percent stated that they are fully committed to CSR and that it underpins all that they do while 26 percent said they are currently developing policies to fulfill this brief."
Like the song says, "Feeling Stronger Every Day!"
