ICCA‘s 59th Congress in Kaohsiung will be a Global Hybrid Experience

Press Room > 2020

Registration is now open for the Congress. This year, the theme is: ‘Transforming Global Events Together’ which will provide the structure for the future of global events.

The event allows ICCA’s global community to connect with each other and explore new ideas, formats, and technologies to combine the efforts in creating the “Kaohsiung Protocol” a framework that identifies major trends and key strategies, to thus enable the international meetings industry, to thrive now and on into the future.

This years’ Congress format is designed to enable ICCA’s global community of member-suppliers and associations, to experience the future of global events: Either live in Kaohsiung, at the regional hub, or virtually from November 1 to 3. The innovative virtual platform will give all attendees the opportunity to network, as well as engage in the contents of the Congress during the three days.

In response to the uncertain situation, and to give participants full control of how they wish to attend, ICCA is offering a flexible and adaptable approach to registration and the accompanying fees.  This means delegates can sign up now, but change their registration type later, allowing them to choose between a virtual attendee, a hub attendee, or an in-person attendee in Kaohsiung.

ICCA CEO Senthil Gopinath concludes: “We believe in the power of meeting face-to-face but know this isn’t always possible. Still, we want to make sure our global community can take part and make their voice heard from wherever they are.”
