FEM Sydney Chapter Meeting 27/11/2019

Please join us for the FEM Sydney Chapter Meeting on the 27th November 2019 hosted by International SOS
FEM Sydney Chapter Meeting 27/11/2019


During the annual travel risk outlook, our experts talk about this year’s crises, what the outlook for travel risk and global mobility in 2020 is, and key global issues and emerging trends.

At this event International SOS will highlight the Asia Pacific region and the results of the Ipsos 2020 Trends Watch study.

Each year International SOS conducts an annual Travel Risk Outlook(TRO), as part of our work we conduct an online survey with questions around threat levels, emerging traveller and global mobility issues and risk perception vs. reality.  We engage global market research and consulting firm Ipsos to conduct on our behalf.  In preparation for TRO2020, we have been liaising with Ipsos about using a new method of deep dive interviewing to identify the top concerns among industry professionals, which we will then also use to frame expert opinion on the top concerns.

In this event we will have a panel of medical, security, travel risk and global mobility professionals to present the TRO2020.  The FEM events in both Melbourne and Sydney will launch this research for the Asia Pacific region.

Topics to be covered include in relation to business travel and international assignees;

  • Safety and security
  • Health and wellbeing
  • Geopolitics
  • Environmental issues
  • Cultural issues
  • Global risks

Attendees will also receive a copy of our annual Travel Risk Map and the research report
