The red update button is your friend! The more you use it, the more concrete information you get. ICCA members - together with the ICCA team - are working hard to achieve a mutually beneficial situation of sharing information on the ICCA Association Database. 

Keep finding ways to press it and you'll be in the running to become the next Researcher of the Month - or even Researcher of the Year!

Valeria Pennesi, Communication Director and International Event Manager at Symposia SRL has secured the coveted title this month! Here's what the Valeria had to say:


How is the ICCA database beneficial for your work/organization?

The ICCA database is a crucial instrument for our organization, Symposia srl, that I'm representing, worked hard during the last years with the aim of growing its expertise on associative events that represent a specific branch in the event field. Having the possibility of using a complete and well structured database enhances the scope of our work that benefits of the professional and accurate research behind it.  

Do you have any tips for your fellow ICCA members?

I find extremely helpful the active and responsive support that ICCA provides to all members, I encourage all colleagues to make a productive use of this professional and helpful dialogue. 

From the other hand I believe that being not only users but also active members it's important, for this reason I would recommend all my colleagues to be proactively contributing with updates, additions and reports.

What positive message would you like to share with ICCAWorld

Even if the event field is a competitive world, I experienced that cooperating in a fair and productive way enhances each other's work. Professional enthusiasm and cooperation are driving to successful peaks.
