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 cityâ€™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 ICCAâ€™s strategic goals, and at the same time, portraying our vision and capability as a host destination,â€ś 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 â€“ and the second time for Bangkok.
â€śThe recently pledged Net Zero Carbon Events initiative, for example, is in sync with TCEBâ€™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 industryâ€™s carbon footprint and preserving environmental resources for the next generation,” Chiruit added.
