In recognition of his outstanding work over many years in supporting ICCA's growth and profile within Latin America, in promoting the importance of the international meetings industry throughout the region, in acting as the leading congress ambassador for his home country, Uruguay, and in launching major initiatives to improve areas such as statistical measurement and professional development and training, the ICCA Board recognised Arnaldo Nardone with the association's highest honour, the Moises Shuster Award, named for one of ICCA's founding fathers and past Presidents. A limited edition Mont Blanc fountain pen was presented to Arnaldo during the Gala Dinner at the 47th ICCA Congress & Exhibition which took place 1-5 November 2008 in Victoria, Canada.
Arnaldo also served on the Board for six years, has been Chairperson of the Latin American Chapter, and was the leading host of the successful and highly memorable 2005 ICCA Congress in Montevideo.
