Thailand, Monaco and New Zealand partner with ICCA to strengthen relationships with international associations
The newly launched Association Relations Partnership is a collaborative programme designed to help ICCA strengthen its relationship with international associations, including hosting some of their top executives and meeting directors at the annual ICCA Congress, which will take place November 13-16 in Kuching.
“We are delighted that Thailand, Monaco and New Zealand have decided to position themselves in the association meetings community as forerunners and supporters of our new strategic efforts and welcome these ICCA members as new Association Relations Partners,” said ICCA CEO Martin Sirk.
Vichaya Soonthornsaratoon, director of conventions department at the Thailand Convention and Exhibition Bureau, says they were proud to partner with ICCA.
“We believe in ICCA’s professionalism and trust that this new initiative will bring us closer to international associations.”
Lisa Gardiner, manager business events and premium Tourism New Zealand, also welcomed the opportunity to strengthen its relationship with ICCA.
“Tourism New Zealand is seeing significant growth in businesses choosing our country as a destination and this new opportunity will help us to continue to build on that growth,” she said.
“We look forward to working even more closely with ICCA and their global community over the coming months.”
