“ICCA recognises how Abu Dhabi understands the transformative role major international events can play, and how delegates gathered from across the globe can meet, share, and learn in a spirit of openness and possibility,” said Senthil Gopinath, ICCA CEO.
“With a focus on sustainability and celebrating the potential of what can be achieved when we work together, and after delivering a quite superb proposal, the 63rd ICCA Congress staged in this very modern metropolis promises to be a landmark event.”
Saleh Mohamed Al Geziry, director general for tourism at the Abu Dhabi Department of Culture and Tourism, said the opportunity to host the ICCA Congress demonstrates the emirate’s growth as a MICE destination.
“This win has been possible due to the collective support from key stakeholders such as Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre as well as other local and regional partners,” he said.
“Through our commitment to forging strategic partnerships, we have positioned Abu Dhabi as a dynamic hub where businesses prosper, and innovation thrives. By offering a wide array of distinct venues, hotels and year-round cultural, leisure and entertainment options, we deliver travel and business experiences for all our MICE visitors.”
