2021 Virtual Peer Group Conference
We know how much you look forward to being together every year at Peer Group. We don't want to let this pandemic keep us from coming together in 2021, so we have decided to have our conference in a virtual format. This was not an easy decision, but we feel it is for the best because we value your safety and respect your budget constraints that Covid-19 has jeopardized this year.
In coming to this decision, we surveyed our bank club members about their ability to attend the Peer Group Conference in February 2021, and learned:
Given this information, it is clear that a virtual conference will attract far more bankers than a physical conference in 2021. Additionally, we anticipate many bankers who each year cannot attend the physical conference will now be able to attend the virtual Peer Group.
- less than 30% would be able to attend a physical conference
- 99% would attend a virtual conference.
We've slashed the price of the conference so everyone can afford to attend:
Registration with BAM appointments: $700 - Normally $1,535
We have added these additional benefits at no charge:
We are extremely grateful for your registration and are hard at work planning another fabulous Peer Group to bring you the high-quality education and networking experience that you have come to expect from HCI.
- Shorter time commitment - all of your conference events take place in 3 days
- Share the costs - you are now welcome to invite up to 2 additional delegates/members to join you for the BAM appointments only at no extra charge
A virtual conference provides the unique opportunity to include someone who may not typically be able to attend the in-person conference. We hope you'll take advantage of it and encourage others in your organization to attend.
We will announce the full schedule soon, but rest assured that we will continue to have many of the sessions that you look forward to, including:
- One-on-one business appointments where every Banker will meet with every Partner (meetings will be scheduled prior to the conference)
- Destination Showcases by every HCI Preferred Tour Operator
- Networking, entertainment and happy hours throughout the conference
- Speakers, educational sessions and online training, including:
- Using Social Media
- Promoting Travel Today
- Maintaining Mental Health
- Panel of Industry Experts discussing Current State of Travel Post-pandemic
- and MUCH MORE!!
In order to respect your time, we will begin the conference with only PTOs and Bankers who will participate in their Destination Showcases. Partners are invited to join the conference for Happy Hour on Tuesday afternoon at 3pm CT, and continue through the remainder of the conference that will conclude on Friday.
Preliminary Conference Schedule
This year, Partners will have the opportunity to sponsor a 5-, 15- or 30-minute VidEvent. What's a VidEvent? It is an entertaining destination presentation such as a live or recorded performance, tour or video promotion that will whet the appetites of our delegates. We know that you could really benefit from having extra time with Bankers to promote your destination or attraction.
$95 5-Minute VidEvent
$195 15-Minute VidEvent
$395 30-Minute VidEvent
We can't wait to see you at Peer Group 2021!
