Congresses association ICCA launches new ICCA Association Community, which brings together meeting industry leaders

22 October 2019ICCA Congress 2019

Ahead of the ICCA Congress in Houston on 27 — 30 October 2019, ICCA has announced the January 2020 launch of its “ICCA Association Community” in a message yesterday morning to its global membership. 


Offering education, connections, tools and resources to assist and support international associations in organising more effective meetings, the new platform will officially welcome association executives into ICCA’s global association meeting community as affiliates, aiming to shape the future and value of international association meetings.

ICCA, the International Congress and Convention Association, is the global community and knowledge hub for the international association meetings industry. Its members are over 1,100 leading, international meeting suppliers from almost 100 countries, dedicated to providing world-class services and engaging with association executives to exchange knowledge and share best practices. The launch of the ICCA Association Community will officially integrate associations within ICCA’s global community, helping to shape ICCA’s future and provide opportunities for a closer, long-term collaboration.

In his message to members, James Rees, ICCA President stated: “For over 55 years ICCA has been the catalyst to bring together the major destinations, venues, and service providers of the international association meetings industry under a common mission to shape the future and value of international association meetings. As the world of meetings has evolved, so has the relationship between ICCA and the associations, moving from the supplier-buyer relationship to that of real partnership and collaboration.” 

Rees elaborates on the various initiatives created in recent years to develop closer engagement with associations and stresses the importance of this latest development as the culmination of years of building relationships and completing the global association meetings picture: “To stay relevant for our members, evolve with the times and be true to our mission, ICCA has developed a series of initiatives in recent years to develop closer engagement with associations. These have included the launch of our Association Portal, the creation of ICCA Verified Associations and increased participation of association executives in our meetings and workshops, the latter with the support of our Association Relations Partners. ICCA’s next step is now filling the missing link and embracing associations in our community as true partners. ICCA is therefore inviting senior association executives, meetings managers and volunteer leaders to join the ICCA Association Community.”

ICCA’s target group will be association executives with decision-making or a decision-influencing role on where their international meeting is held and criteria for joining will be the same as ICCA’s criteria for inclusion in the ICCA database: They must be non-governmental organisations not managed by third parties with at least one internationally rotating meeting, which attracts a minimum of 50 participants per meeting, and is held on a regular basis.
