Researcher of the Month

Share on LinkedIn More

The red update button is your friend! The more you use it, the more concrete information you get. ICCA members - together with the ICCA team - are working hard to achieve a mutually beneficial situation of sharing information on the ICCA Association Database. 

Keep finding ways to press it and you'll be in the running to become the next Researcher of the Month - or even Researcher of the Year!

Ana Mendes, Sales representative, Turismo de Lisboa Visitors & Convention Bureau has secured the coveted title this month! Here's what Ana had to say:


How is the ICCA database beneficial for your work/organization?

We always understood the value and work being done by the association as we are also part of one - Associação Turismo de Lisboa.  We are ICCA members since July 1990  longtime partners and enthusiasts.

The scope of the ICCA database is remarkable -we can do comparison reports, learn from the insightful surveys and reports.

It also allows us to search for new potential business and define strategies ; to follow the last updates on opportunities for Lisboa.

By using frequently ICCA’s red button disciplined me as a Researcher. As a Researcher, I understand the value/importance of contributing data to the ICCA Database , making it a win-win scenario for researchers and the destinations.


Do you have any tips for your fellow ICCA members?

The ICCA database is a really great source, having Congress calendars updated on a regular basis is really important , so use more frequently the red button - knowledge sharing is key!  

When prospecting, the process is much easier and efficient if the information for the meeting you’re researching is up to date. It provides a better understanding whether a particular meeting is a good fit for the destination and allows reliable knowledge for all ICCA members.  


What positive message would you like to share with ICCA World (Doesn’t have to be about work/database/research)

Engagement, empathy, more flexible and adaptable minds will bring you closer to your client’s needs and goals.

A special thanking note to the ICCA Researchers/team – I absolutely adore the time of the year when we have to work harder as researchers to provide all the needed information for the ICCA rankings – so you have my total respect and admiration! This is hard work , but it totally compensates!

Thank you for this award/recognition !

In the end the database is an excellent tool, and it makes researching so much easier if the most recent information is available.

Let’s all work together and share the same purpose!
