Welcome from the ICCA African Chapter 

Dear ICCA Africa members,

It is a great honour and privilege to be afforded the opportunity to serve as ICCA African Chapter Chairperson.  I look forward to working with you as we navigate the African Chapter towards a successful term.

ICCA Africa members currently represent 10 countries in Africa in the Sectors of Destination Marketing, Meetings Management, Meeting Support and Venues.

Objectives of the Chapter as the voice of Africa in the global meetings world are:

  • Increasing our market share of the global meetings industry
  • Extracting more business between countries on the continent
  • Growing and educating our people within the industry
  • Creating a positive image about Africa as a unique & inspiring destination for international and regional association meetings

African Chapter meetings are held 3 times a year:  during Meetings Africa, IMEX Frankfurt and the ICCA Congress and is the ideal platform for members to engage with each other and benefit from these high-level networking opportunities.

As part of the ICCA Strategic Plan 2015 – 2020, one of the Objectives was to enhance ICCA’s Regional Office presence to provide greater levels of services and support to members. The Africa Regional Office was upgraded with a full time director as of January 2016.  Members are encouraged to liaise with the Africa Regional Office for support when required. Our Regional Director, Esmaré Steinhöfel has a wealth of industry knowledge and is always eager to assist our members.

In order to strengthen our presence on the continent and expand the ICCA membership base I would like to encourage each member in our Chapter to identify potential members in their cities and sectors who would benefit from joining ICCA. The greater our base, the more beneficial the Chapter becomes for all its members. Please could I ask us all to consider this request and forward your suggestions to Esmaré on e-mail:  Esmare.s@iccaworld.org by 30 September 2018.

I am looking forward to seeing you all and engaging with you at the next African Chapter meeting.

 

Yours sincerely,

Lindiwe Rakharebe
Durban International Convention Centre
