The 62nd annual International Congress and Convention Association (ICCA) Congress, scheduled for November 12-15, 2023, will be heading to Bangkok, Thailand.
The Congress aims to help reimagine the city’s future together with ICCA, the Thailand Convention & Exhibition Bureau (TCEB), and the global business events industry to benefit the local community.
“Our intention for the 2023 ICCA Congress is to co-create an annual congress that rewards every delegate while also supporting all of ICCA’s strategic goals, and at the same time, portraying our vision and capability as a host destination,“ stated Chiruit Isarangkun Na Ayuthaya, TCEB’s president.
Thailand has been an active member of ICCA since 1974. This would be the third time for Thailand to host ICCA Congress – and the second time for Bangkok.
“The recently pledged Net Zero Carbon Events initiative, for example, is in sync with TCEB’s vision and goal. For us, as a country, Thailand reimagines a future of sustainable development where no one is left behind.
“As a city, Bangkok reimagines a future as a world metropolis and a centre of knowledge and creativity. As a national convention bureau, TCEB reimagines a future in which business events help foster the social and economic growth of the country while simultaneously reducing the industry’s carbon footprint and preserving environmental resources for the next generation,” Chiruit added.
