IMR Heads off to ICCA!

International Meetings Review is off to San Juan, Puerto Rico for the 51st ICCA Congress! We'll be reporting live from the event, but here's a taste of what you can expect to learn about in the coming week!

  • ICCA is opening new regional offices in Africa and the Middle East. ICCA President Arnaldo Nardone stated: “The international association meetings market is continuing to evolve, and it is in the growth of regional meetings that we anticipate some of the most dramatic future developments. This trend is already well established in Asia and Latin America, and it is certain that Africa and Middle East are starting to move down the same road, as we have seen from recent moves to create an African society for association executives. What this implies is that there is going to be more business for our existing members in these regions, more new events to identify and add to the ICCA Association Database, more new infrastructure developments, more understanding of the strategic importance of association events by city and national governments, and more interest in ICCA by potential new members. It is strategically important for ICCA to build a long-term presence in these markets.” 
  • ICCA membership continues to grow strongly. Like last year, the association had a record number of 17 new ICCA members in September.
  • International association meetings market remains resilient and positive despite tougher financial pressures. The results from the latest ICCA and IMEX Group survey into how international association meetings are faring, continue to paint a positive picture for this most resilient sector in the meetings industry, despite tougher financial pressures.
