Attend ICCA’s Annual Congress

Take part in Client/Supplier Workshops
Have one on one meetings with clients who have programmes which reflect your needs. There is no better way to secure business than to have two days of time to spend with clients and their trusted ICCA Member partners.
Attend the Association Meetings Programme (AMP)
The AMP brings together ICCA members and international association executives to learn from each other and from a top faculty of experts about key aspects of bidding and decision-making, organising, promoting, and designing int'l association meetings.
Take part in Business Exchanges
These take place during the ICCA Congress, Association Meetings Programme (AMP) and prior to IMEX. If you personally do not want to take part in the Business Exchange, please bring along another colleague to IMEX and the Congress and have them take part. Remember, someone doing research/prospecting for you, can prepare your Business Exchange submission.
