2013 ICCA Congress to Shanghai – 2012 ICCA Research, Sales & Marketing to Vorarlberg

The 52nd ICCA Congress will be held in Shanghai, China-P.R. on 2 - 6 November 2013. The ICCA Board’s decision was made at the IMEX 2010 exhibition in Frankfurt and was revealed on the last day of the show. The other finalists in the bidding competition were Houston, TX, U.S.A. and Gold Coast, Qld., Australia.

ICCA CEO Martin Sirk said: "The standard of bids received from our member destinations continues to improve each year, and Shanghai needed to produce an exceptional proposal in order to win this tough competition. Their bid involved members from all over China, it positioned the ICCA Congress as a key milestone in the strategic development of China's international meetings industry, it was packed with creative concepts, and clearly communicated the enthusiasm and commitment of the host team. We anticipate that this will be a superb event, and look forward to working with our Chinese colleagues on a programme that will expose ICCA members to China and its business potential, and which will transfer cutting-edge knowledge and expertise to the Chinese meetings industry."

The ICCA Research, Sales & Marketing Programme 2012 goes to Vorarlberg, Austria. The programme will be held from 14-16 June 2012 at the Festival House Bregenz.

Marina Knittel, Project Manager, Convention Partner Vorarlberg says: “We are proud and excited to host the ICCA Research, Sales & Marketing Programme 2012. Vorarlberg will definitely impress the delegates by its fascinating scenery between Lake Constance and the Alps, our highly-awarded congress facilities (The Festival House Bregenz was awarded by EVVC as one of the 3 „Best Centers” in 2009), and the hospitality and friendliness of the local people. Sustainable event organising is a matter of course in our region and we look forward to applying our principle of economic, ecological and social responsibility to the organisation of the programme. We are confident that the delegates will enjoy both the educational and recreational part of their stay in Vorarlberg.”
