ICCA Congress selects Dubai for 2018 meeting

DUBAI will welcome the 57th edition of the ICCA Congress in 2018, it announced this week.

Hosting the ICCA Congress is one step towards the destination’s Tourism Vision 2020 to increase arrivals to the emirate through a regular stream of events, of which business events form an integral part.

Steen Jakobsen, director of Dubai Business Events, a division of the Dubai Department of Tourism and Commerce Marketing, commented: “The ICCA Congress is known to attract a gathering of meeting industry professionals from across the globe and will be a fantastic opportunity for the emirate to familiarise leading ICCA members with everything Dubai and the Middle East has to offer for business and leisure tourists.”

Likewise, ICCA CEO, Martin Sirk, commented: “Dubai is positioning itself as the Middle East hub for association development, and the potential for ICCA membership growth is very exciting, so there are very compelling business opportunities for both ICCA and our members.”
