On Wednesday 6th July 2016 HSMAI Region Europe Distribution Advisory Board officially started its operation with our first meeting this week.
“Distribution has previously always been part of the Revenue Management Advisory Board, but recently the feedback we have received shows there is need to focus more on Distribution specific topics. Therefore Distribution needs its own Advisory Board,” says Ingunn Hofseth, President & CEO of HSMAI Region Europe.
“Having said that, HSMAI Region Europe wants to make sure that the Advisory Boards don’t operate in silos only but that we will share information across the disciplines and Advisory Boards. This will happen twice a year: once at the Leadership Day that takes place in September, and again by the end of March 2017 at the many Think Tanks in conjunction with the Revenue Optimization Conference ROC Europe,” Hofseth continues.

The next meeting of the HSMAI Region Europe Distribution Advisory Board will take place at the end of September in Southern France in conjunction with the HSMAI Region Europe Leadership Day.
