Melbourne will host the International Congress and Convention Association (ICCA) Asia Pacific Client/Supplier Business Workshop next month.
Melbourne Convention Bureau (MCB) collaborated with the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre to develop the winning bid, which will bring 19 ICCA members and 16 of their association leaders to Melbourne for business sessions on September 16-18.
The Workshop is an annual event organised by the ICCA Asia Pacific Chapter specifically catered to its members in the Asia Pacific Chapter.
“Thought leaders from eight countries will meet in Melbourne to discuss future collaborations that will resonate beyond meetings,” ICCA Regional Director Asia Pacific Noor Ahmad Hamid said.
“On behalf of ICCA, we would like to thank Melbourne Convention Bureau and all its partners for their undivided support.”
MCB acting chief executive Julia Swanson said the workshop represents an excellent opportunity for Melbourne to demonstrate its capacity and capability to deliver successful business events and showcase its credentials as a knowledge hub to key decision makers from associations looking to host their events in Asia Pacific region.
“Melbourne is where creativity and innovation come together to deliver great events, exciting places to explore and cutting-edge advancements that are globally acclaimed,” she said.
“MCB and its partners are excited to be hosting the ICCA Asia Pacific Client Workshop in September. We look forward to welcoming ICCA members and international association executives from across the region and highlight our famed ‘Team Melbourne’ approach.”
