Business Events | July 29, 2015 | News


ICWF 2015 is all set to surprise its delegates with the 'Black & White' session which is scheduled to take place on day 2 (Aug 1) of the convention.

The names of the speakers/panelists has been kept in suspense for this session but if one has to go by the name of the session: 'Black & White' it sounds like there might be controversy!

Adding to the excitement, it has been learnt that this session with happen under the Chatham House Rules, where the identity of speakers are unknown through the session as well.


The Chatham House Rule reads as follows:

When a meeting, or part thereof, is held under the Chatham House Rule, participants are free to use the information received, but neither the identity nor the affiliation of the speaker(s), nor that of any other participant, may be revealed.

The world-famous Chatham House Rule may be invoked at meetings to encourage openness and the sharing of information.


Explanation of the Rule

The Chatham House Rule originated at Chatham House with the aim of providing anonymity to speakers and to encourage openness and the sharing of information. It is now used throughout the world as an aid to free discussion. Meetings do not have to take place at Chatham House, or be organized by Chatham House, to be held under the Rule.

Meetings, events and discussions held at Chatham House are normally conducted 'on the record' with the Rule occasionally invoked at the speaker's request. In cases where the Rule is not considered sufficiently strict, an event may be held 'off the record'.

It allows people to speak as individuals, and to express views that may not be those of their organizations, and therefore it encourages free discussion. People usually feel more relaxed if they don't have to worry about their reputation or the implications if they are publicly quoted. 


The upcoming convention for the wedding and social events industry will feature a session, whose speakers will be kept in suspense.
