ICCA and BestCities Global Alliance have opened applications for the fifth year of the Incredible Impacts Programme, a global initiative that shines a light on associations delivering lasting societal change through congress.
This year’s programme also responds to the industry challenges faced as a result of the pandemic by welcoming applications from associations that have successfully delivered legacy programmes through virtual or hybrid event formats.
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.
ICCA’s multi-hub, hybrid 59th Congress continued the process of ‘Transforming Together’ and, on its second day, 2 November, attracted a message of support delivered in person by Luxembourg prime minister Hon. Xavier Bettel (pictured), who showed that some politicians really do get our industry.
