Register today for the ICCA Association Expert Seminar – only 10 places left!

The ICCA Association Expert Seminar  (AES) is a unique opportunity to learn how to negotiate with- and understand the objectives of suppliers, and it enables suppliers to understand your objectives and business cultures, when organising your meetings.
Over the past 10 years the AES has become so popular that most of the places have already filled before registration even opened. We would like to offer you one of the last few complimentary registrations for the AES, which takes place the weekend before IMEX, from 16 to 18 May in Frankfurt. In order to attend the AES, you need to be registered to attend IMEX as a Hosted Buyer

Attend the meetings industry tradeshow IMEX as part of the ICCA Hosted buyer Group (for European based associations only)

If you have not signed up for IMEX yet, please sign up now, through this special link! *Conditions apply.

By being part of the ICCA Hosted Buyer Group you will have the added advantage of arranging your own individual appointments. You are also invited to attend the “Association Day”, a programme of custom-designed education and networking sessions for international association executives taking place on the Monday before IMEX opens for business.
Reward your staff!

Recognising the increasing importance of less experienced people in the meetings industry, ICCA will partner with the ICCA Australian Committee to deliver the ICCA International Meetings Foundation Seminar (formerly known as Forum for Young Professionals - FYP), which will take place at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre (MCEC) on 22-23 February 2015, two days prior to the Asia-Pacific Incentives & Meetings Expo (AIME) in Melbourne. The Seminar offers targeted education and valuable career development to less experienced professionals in the global meetings industry. For a copy of the programme please visit this link!
