Knowledge Hub

Welcome to the ICCA Knowledge Hub, a resource to help people with an interest in the international association meetings industry, and keen to learn more of how our wider business and events community advocates for societal change. This section covers everything from education - ICCASkills to White Papers.


ICCA – the International Congress and Convention Association – is a global community. We are a not-for-profit organisation with over 1000 members from 91 countries and territories. We have a long and fascinating history and are known across the world as experts at – and leaders in - what we do. To find out more about the ICCA story, from our humble beginnings in 1963, click here. 

ICCA is built very much on the principles of sharing knowledge and building trust. It is in our DNA. We also have a world-famous Database that allows our members and affiliates to access real, relevant and industry-leading stats and analysis. Much of this is used as a basis for our published reports and White Papers. In this extensive archive, you can enjoy access to selected White Papers covering essential aspects of what we do, how we do it, and who we do it with. By offering education, networking opportunities, tools and resources to our associations, we believe we have collected and curated the ‘go to’ library for understanding how associations – so important on the world stage as educators, employers and legacy creators - bring their events to their members. 

Please feel free to explore the archive. And if you want to know more about how ICCA can help you – as a Meeting Professional  and as an Association representative - we are more than happy to share the enhanced benefits membership brings. Don’t forget to follow us on our social media channels to stay updated about all things ICCA.
