ROI Handbook

Download ICCA's ROI Handbook NOW - a new tool for all delegates to identify and maximize their return on investment from attending this year's Congress in Victoria.

In order to access the editable areas on the ROI Handbook please do the following:
When you open the PDF you will get a text box on the top of the page asking you to please fill in the form. On the right side of that text box there is a button which says 'Highlight Fields', click on that button. All the editable areas on the PDF will then be highlighted. You should be able to type in any of these highlighted areas (pages 3-12 have editable areas). 

Education
This year’s education programme promises to be the strongest ICCA has ever put together. The speakers will be a mix of experienced ICCA members, clients from both corporate and association meetings segments, and experts from outside the meetings industry whose advice on sales, marketing and leadership issues will give delegates unique, new perspectives on their personal business challenges. Sector-specific topics will run alongside general meetings industry topics, and will include a mixture of presentations, workshops, and discussion forums. ICCA’s education programme will as always offer global perspectives, with top level speakers drawn from all regions of the world. And since two-thirds of our delegates are traditionally CEO’s, company owners, and senior directors, there will be a strong emphasis on strategic issues and the future direction of our industry. For the middle managers who participate there will also be a great line-up of sessions focusing on sales and marketing issues, the highlight of which will probably be the “ICCA Best Marketing Award” plenary session, where three exceptional case studies will be presented. 

Business
The ICCA Congress is not just about high level education and exceptional networking. There are also opportunities for delegates to exchange detailed information about key international events they have recently hosted or helped to organise. More and more delegates are signing up for this “Business Exchange” option at the Congress, which allows them to return to their offices with literally dozens of potential business leads, or new and invaluable information about specific events which they are already in the process of trying to win for their company or destination. We will once again be using the new generation of the Spotme handheld electronic networking tool to assist delegates to identify and meet up with colleagues who hold information on events they are interested in. This process runs throughout the whole length of the event.
ICCA Congress & Exhibition, Victoria CanadaMore and more ICCA members are doing business with one another, and the Congress offers the ideal environment to identify new potential partners, suppliers of services, or clients for your own products and services. Delegates will be interviewing overseas marketing representatives, organising user-group meetings, and testing market reactions to new products and services. Over two-thirds of our delegates have high level budget responsibility, and approximately a quarter will be meeting planning specialists who offer access to both association and corporate clients and their events. ICCA aims to make the Congress a valuable business opportunity for each and every participant, since we understand and appreciate the investment in time and cash that attendance represents.
