FIEXPO moves in behind ICCA Congress in Cartagena in October
The management of the FIEXPO Latin America meetings industry show, in conjunction with the Colombian authorities, has announced a decision to move the event from June to new dates straight after the planned International Congress and Convention Association (ICCA) Congress in Cartagena in October.
FIEXPO will now run 27-30 October, 2021, following the ICCA Congress (24-27 October), at Las Americas Convention Center in the Colombian coastal city.
Cartagena will, for one week, host two of the industry’s most important global events.
“We have taken this decision prioritising the health and safety of all participants and taking into account the start of vaccination worldwide in the coming months, which will undoubtedly mean a new stage in the reactivation of activities in the sector,” a statement from the FIEXPO organisers said.
FIEXPO Latin America has built a leading MICE industry event in Latin America and the Caribbean for business meetings, high level educational sessions, and exceptional social events.
“The Politicians Forum convenes the highest authorities of Latin America tourism,” the organisers added, saying it represented a unique and fundamental opportunity to discuss and debate policies and actions across the public and private sectors.
“We are eager to meet again with our exhibitors, buyers, and colleagues, who trust in FIEXPO year after year and who are the ones who represent and make our industry great,” the statement continued.
“For this reason, during the coming months, the FIEXPO team will be working with commitment to prepare a special edition to receive them in October 2021 in Cartagena.”
