Welcoming our conference partners
We are delighted to welcome Graz Tourism as conference partners for Propel: FORWARD.
Graz, was of course, host city for the first Propel Conference. Alongside being a beautiful Austrian city; it has its finger on the pulse of many of the issues we will be exploring at FORWARD, as well as being a destination at the forefront of working with content creators.
Susanne Höller, Graz Tourism’s head of destination marketing, said: “After successfully hosting the first Propel Conference in Graz, we immediately jumped on the idea of being a sponsor of Propel: FORWARD by Captivate. As person-to-person meetings are out of reach at the moment, it is a great opportunity to strengthen existing relations to content creators and build up new ones.
“The post pandemic world will be looking a bit different than before, we all need to face and understand the new challenges which will come our way. So Propel: FORWARD will be the perfect place to learn more about these challenges and how to tackle them. I am happy and proud to be once again part of the Propel family.”
