ICCA Congress 2019
 
ICCA Association Meetings Programme
Durban, South Africa, 18-20 June 2019

58th ICCA Congress

Houston, U.S.A.
27 - 30 October 2019
Make the most of your first ICCA Congress!

Here at ICCA we place huge importance on giving First Time Attendees (FTAs) at the ICCA Congress a very warm welcome. The FTA programme has over the years been delivered to over 3000 delegates, specifically designed to help them network, do business, learn, and overall maximise the benefits of attending their first ICCA Congress.

The programme will provide you with a preview of the main social and educational highlights of the Congress, as well as who and what to look out for. It will also offer you the opportunity to participate in small-group discussions led by industry mentors, who will share their experiences with you as well as advise which sessions they think you may find useful for your professional and/or personal development. They will be available to answer your questions and give advice throughout the Congress.

This is a unique opportunity and not to be missed! So, if the 2019 ICCA Congress is your first and you would like to ensure you are prepared to make the most of it, sign up for the First Time Attendee Programme and plan to arrive on time to participate on Sunday 27 October at 9.00am. We look forward to meeting you in Houston!
