As the new President of ECAO, I am excited to launch registration for our 2018 Industry Conference, which will be taking place in Barcelona from May 26/27 - June 1, 2018. Following on the success of last year’s event - and the feedback from you, our members - we are again making changes to provide greater value for all attendees. This year, we are staying at the Hotel Arts, Ritz Carlton’s flagship hotel on the ocean in the heart of the city, which is the city’s top-rated hotel. Breakfast is included for everyone, every day and, by popular demand, we’ve planned two Partner programs for guests while members are attending the business sessions.

I enjoyed the networking opportunities in Munich, and those opportunities will again be easily available for everyone at this conference. We’ll visit the city and you’ll have the opportunity to sign-up for optional activities to further explore on your own. Our evenings are a combination of unique group events, and the opportunity for you to explore this great city on your own.

There will also be the chance each evening to get together for a nightcap in the ECAO Hospitality Suite. The bar may have been set high in Munich, but Barcelona will set a new standard!

We’re striving to find the right speakers that address your needs, your business, and our changing industry. If you have thoughts on this, please contact Jodi or Ania at the ECAO office.

These are exciting times for ECAO and for me as President. I am excited not only by my new role, but also with the direction our Annual Conferences are taking. Nancy and I look forward to welcoming you next in Barcelona!

Mark Lloyd, ECAO President
