Merry Christmas from C&IT

C&IT would like to thank our readers and partners for your support in 2016 - a year that represented the brand expanding our live events portfolio globally - and wish you all a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

Not only did C&IT hold its inaugural event in the US, with the LA Forum & Fam in partnership with LATCB in March, but we held forum and fam events in Berlin and Qatar. We also launched our first Incentives Retreat at Chewton Glen in Hampshire earlier this month (December) and an inaugural State of the Industry MDs dinner in partnership with Cvent and The Savoy London in June.

There may be uncertainty about what lies ahead in 2017, as the UK prepares to start negotiating its exit from the EU and Donald Trump takes over the US presidency, but there is no doubt the UK remains one of the top destinations in the world to host events, and boasts some of the best talent in the global events industry.

On the subject of talent, team C&IT are sad to say farewell to long-standing editor-in-chief Yasmin Arrigo, who leaves this week following more than a decade on the brand. Arrigo commented: "it has been a pleasure to report on and be part of such a vibrant industry. Across the past ten years, we've launched numerous brand extensions including The A List and C&IT Awards, which remain at the forefront of the C&IT portfolio today."

Arrigo joins C&IT's sister site, campaignlive.co.uk, in the New Year as head of audience engagement. We are sure you will all join the rest of Team C&IT in wishing her well in her exciting new role.

From all of us here at C&IT, enjoy the Christmas holidays and have a great new year – we hope to see you all in 2017 at one of our many events! We have our annual Corporate Forum coming up at Hilton Syon Park on 6-7 February, followed by our first Forum & Fam event in Singapore in partnership with STB in March – stay tuned for more details.
