Ulrike von Arnold, deputy director of the Vienna Convention Bureau, has received ICCA’s highest honour during the general assembly at the ICCA Congress in Houston.
The Award is given to an individual nominated by the ICCA Board most, but not every year, in recognition not only of their inspiring business success and leadership in the international meetings business, but also for their important contribution towards ICCA’s development and success.
“Ulrike von Arnold has given an immense amount of her time to ICCA, in particular in her involvement with ICCA’s educational activities,” said ICCA president James Rees. “She has presented throughout the world at ICCA events including our Association Meetings Programme and annual Congress, travelling to numerous countries representing ICCA and sharing her skills on bidding, marketing and strategy with other ICCA members and potential members.”
Von Arnold has served on the ICCA Board of Directors from 2011 to 2017, acting as Vice President from 2014 to 2017.
