ICCA International Meetings Foundation Seminar to be Held in Melbourne

The inaugural ICCA International Meetings Foundation Seminar (IMFS), formerly known as the Forum for Young Professionals, will be held at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre from February 22 - 23  prior to the Asia-Pacific Incentives and Meetings Expo (AIME) in Australia. ICCA Australia partners ICCA Asia Pacific Office to provide basic foundation seminar for meeting professionals with fewer than five years' experience in the industry.

A total of 51 participants from Australia, Taipei, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Japan, Malaysia, New Zealand, Republic of Korea and Thailand have signed on to learn from more than 20 international experts in the meeting space. The seminar will be facilitated by three leaders from Australia’s business events scene: Anna Case from Gold Coast Business Events, Alex Yeomans from CIM Magazine and Oscar Cerezales from MCI Group. 

One of the key highlights of the IMFS will be the closing keynote session from inspirational speaker Sebastian Terry, who has been featured in the Discovery Network's documentary for his ‘100 Things…’.

"We've changed the name of our key educational event at AIME to highlight a new format and revamped content, designed with strong input from ICCA members," ICCA CEO Martin Sirk said in a statement. "At each AIME since 2000, ICCA has offered young professionals and those new to international association meetings this unique opportunity to learn the best practices and latest innovations of the most successful players in our business, and to gain insights into how the market international meetings market is evolving."
