ICCA Education Seesion: The Untold Value of International Association Meetings and their Positive Global Impact
Speaker: Elif Balci Fisunoglu, Regional Director-Europe | International Congress and Convention Association
Date: Thursday, 14 February
Time: 09:30 - 10:25
Dynamic, rapidly-evolving with many interwoven networks and partnerships, the international association meetings market encompasses a great many industries and sectors. As a result, an association meeting is a place where all these parts come together; they provide a stage for academia, industry, NGOs and government to share knowledge and find solutions to the world’s most pressing challenges. Their impact upon society is wide-reaching and they are essential drivers of global development and progress.
To help you make sense of the importance of international association meetings and how they drive economic, social, political and cultural progress, this session will take you through the ins-and-outs of the different sources of value of association meetings, from the tourism and “beyond tourism” to the economic and scientific impacts on host destinations and global industries. You will walk away with a greater understanding of the economic and social implications of engaging global congresses and newsworthy events, and how to make them positively impact your destination.
