The winners of INCON’s 2018 Digital Infrastructure Award were announced at IMEX 2018 in Frankfurt last week, all of whom are ICCA members! Representing the most innovative venues in digital infrastructure in the Asia-Pacific region, KINTEX (Korea International Exhibition Center) and the International Convention Centre Sydney both came in first place, with the Pacific Convention Plaza Yokohama announced as the runner-up and the Kyoto International Conference Center receiving an honourable mention.
This indicates once more that ICCA members, as the meeting industry’s leading suppliers, are at the forefront of the latest industry developments. We would like to congratulate this year’s winners on a fantastic achievement!
Bob Heile, Head of the Award’s judging panel explained: "This is year five of the Digital Infrastructure Award, and it is great to see the quality of the submissions improving year-on-year as facilities realise how important it is to their business and to winning customers to provide an outstanding digital experience to their clients. KINTEX (Korea International Exhibition Center) and ICC Sydney truly deserved to be distinguished due to their superb infrastructure and operational excellence."
What is the Digital Infrastructure Award?
The Award offers an opportunity to showcase venues that have worked hard to put in place excellent digital infrastructure which permits event planners to deliver even better meetings. By giving visibility to the venues that are delivering excellent services, INCON hopes to inspire improvements to digital infrastructure across all venues, which should be of tremendous value to delegates, clients, meeting planners and to the broader meetings industry.
INCON has teamed up with a broad coalition of strategic partners to support the development and promotion of the global award. The partners include: IACC, ICCA, Best Cities, IMEX, The Iceberg and this year’s new media partner, Association Meetings International.
