The second edition of ICCA Asia Pacific Summit 2020 will be held in Xiamen, China, on July 23 and 24 this year, said the association in a press release yesterday.
The event will see ICCA Asia Pacific Chapter â€“ the largest chapter in ICCA’s global membership with nearly 300 members â€“ enabling Xiamen to showcase its local expertise to international attendees to encourage collaboration, innovation and business exchange. In turn, Asia-Pacific delegates will be provided with opportunities to advance their knowledge from networking and exchanging views from their industry peers.
As one of China’s four special economic zones opened in 1980, Xiamen has long been an important hub city open to foreign trade. She is the host city of the ninth BRICS Summit and many other international events.
Jeoven Wong, director general of Xiamen Municipal Bureau of Convention & Exhibition Affairs, said in a statement: â€œI am delighted that ICCA Asia Pacific has chosen Xiamen as the host city for the next Annual Summit so that we can showcase Xiamen – a garden city which is one of Chinaâ€™s top ten cities suitable for human inhabitation featuring her high development in culture, education, economic prosperity and picturesque scenery.”
The ICCA Asia Pacific Chapter Summit was started in 2019 with its inaugural editionÂ held in Penang, Malaysia.
