ICCA Prepares for November Congress in Antalya, Turkey
With three weeks to go before the opening session, the 53rd ICCA Congress, set to take place November 1-5 in Antalya, Turkey, has already passed 800 registrations.
International meetings industry suppliers from 71 countries have registered for the upcoming ICCA Congress, an all-time record. Of the attendees, 197 delegates have signed up and pre-qualified for the Business Exchange, ICCA's lead- and value-generator for delegates. This is also an all-time record for the event.
“Today, every delegate has to demonstrate great ROI when they attend a conference," ICCA CEO Martin Sirk said in a statement, adding that the show's Business Exchange concept helps delegates "go back to their offices with vital information on bids they are currently working on and a portfolio of potential new sales leads.”
The education program is custom-designed every year to meet the interest of ICCA’s global mix of senior level delegates. The program's speakers includes top corporate and association meetings clients, expert business speakers from outside the meetings industry, and of course a selection of some of the most experienced ICCA members. Speakers are drawn from all regions of the world, matching the global mix and interests of the delegates.
