ICCA’s 50th goes to Leipzig in 2011

The International Congress and Convention Association (ICCA) has confirmed that its 50th Congress will take place at the Congress Center Leipzig, Germany at the end of October 2011.

The ICCA board’s decision was made at the IMEX 2008 exhibition in Frankfurt. The other finalists for 2011 were Pittsburgh, USA and a joint effort from Abu Dhabi and Dubai, United Arab Emirates.

Martin Sirk, ICCA chief executive, said: “I think the three bids for our 2011 congress have been the strongest ever, but it was the truly exceptional standard of the Leipzig bid that led to the board’s decision. It was carefully focused on ICCA’s business and development objectives, highly creative and involved a committed ICCA team from all over Germany. I am sure they will enable us to deliver a superb Congress.”

Leipzig Tourism and Marketing is relaunching its meetings website (www.do-it-at-leipzig.de). The website provides information on conference hotels, congress centres and event venues, together with the necessary service providers, such as agencies, Professional Congress Organisers, hostess and security services and transport options, all from a single source.

Unique features include the site’s Event Planner, which allows you to specify certain parameters, such as the number of people attending according to seating options, the size of the exhibition space, the number of hotel rooms required and the location of the event.

The results list provides a range of suitable hotels or venues, prioritised according to the degree to which they match your criteria. The Venue Search allows you to search for potential venues – for example, according to the type of event being planned and/or the desired ambience.
