Scandinavia: Uppsala To Host Third ICCA Client Supplier Workshop in 2016


In partnership with:


In 2013, Uppsala increased its number of international meetings by 50 percent and foreign congress participants doubled in comparison to 2012. The city also won the 3rd ICCA Client Supplier Workshop 2016. This is one in a series of international initiatives that the Uppsala Convention Bureau hopes will contribute to continued positive results for the city.

The ICCA Client Supplier Workshop for smaller conferences is a workshop that has been conducted on two previous occasions, 2013 in Ghent and 2014 in Toulouse. In the future, this European workshop will be organized every second year. Fifteen of Europe's international organizations are invited and the participating guests decide where their international conferences will be held. Participants are limited to 15 organizations and 15 convention destinations.

“Uppsala has participated in the two previous conferences, and we are very pleased with the results. The destinations have been in dialogue with the organizations behind the congresses and have found reconciliation of both knowledge exchange and pure business benefits. It's a good opportunity, in a smaller context, to learn more about how associations think and what they expect of us as destinations in the future. It seemed obvious to apply for hosting this workshop,” said Anna Lindström, manager, Uppsala Convention Bureau, Destination Uppsala.

The criteria to participate in the upcoming workshop is that each destination brings a person involved in decision-making, from an organization whose Congress regularly rotates between at least three European countries, has up to 800 participants and is arranged for three or more days.
