How is the ICCA database beneficial for your work/organisation?
Not a day goes by without checking the ICCA database!
Researching for association meetings takes amount of effort, adding the fact that it is not easy to get reliable and latest information on the internet. For me, ICCA data base serves as trusted information source.
Before contacting any clients, I make sure to check the database first and understand their requirements so I can respond to them appropriately.
Also, I make use of the data base for building our target list.
Do you have any tips for your fellow ICCA members?
- Check the “HOT Leads” in regular basis to see what are upcoming RFP’s
- Keep searching potential meetings which rotate your destination
- Use the ‘save’ feature to spare time when you visit the data base the next time
