ICCA cancels Russian events following aggression in Ukraine

ICCA president James Rees has announced the board voted to cancel all Russian meetings following the country's invasion of Ukraine.

International Congress and Convention Association (ICCA) has cancelled all planned activities and events in Russia following the invasion of Ukraine.

In addition, Russian members will not be able to attend ICCA events until further notice.

“On behalf of the Board, we categorically and unequivocally condemn Russian aggression in Ukraine,” ICC President James Rees said in a statement.

“ICCA is liaising with our members in Ukraine and we will be contributing €10,000 to an agreed humanitarian charity to support them in their efforts to provide aid to those Ukrainians who are suffering as a result of these acts of aggression.

“Our heart goes out to all those affected by this unprovoked and devastating war. We wish for nothing more than to see an end to this conflict before more innocent lives are lost.”
