The annual InterDirect Managers Meeting that took place in Chiang Mai was a total success. It is important to stay relevant in a business world that is constantly changing and that is the number one lesson that we can take from this year’s meeting.

Not afraid of complex topics, the attendees approached subjects like the transformation of AI into IA in digital marketing, what are the cheap, easy and successful ways in gaining new clients, or the deep impact a loyalty program like Rewardiful can have on a business, among many other interesting topics.

Needless to say, this annual meeting was a true eye opener and a learning opportunity for all of us. Furthermore, we would like to thank our speakers but also our fellow collegues that participated in the event, as well as everyone involved in making it such a wonderful experience. Check out more photos from the event here!

We are now looking forward to our next meeting that will take place in September, in Bucharest, Romania. We’ll keep you posted!
