IT&CM China 2012 keynote session, “China’s Century: Fulfilling its Destiny as a Mega Meetings Destination”, delivered by ICCA CEO Martin Sirk, enjoyed a huge turnout.

Drawing on his 20 years of industry experience, Sirk spoke about the growing importance of international meetings in the world, and specifically in China.

Delegates at IT&CM China will have the opportunity to catch another seminar by Sirk on Thursday, April 19 where he will talk about, “How International Associations Make Their Decisions.”
