Shanghai to Host the 52nd ICCA Congress 2013
The 52nd Congress of International Congress and Convention Association (ICCA) will be held in Shanghai on November 2-6, 2013. The annual congress is to be jointly organised by ICCA and Shanghai Municipal Tourism Administration in coordination with ICCA Chinese members.
Hosting ICCA Congress 2013 will play an important role in promoting Shanghai to the international meetings and tourism market, attracting more international meetings to Shanghai, and giving a strong boost to the growth of Shanghai’s meetings and industry, especially in maintaining and enhancing the appeal of Shanghai to the international meetings and tourism market after the World Expo 2010.
At the same time, the Congress will also help make Shanghai and China as a whole better known in the international meetings and tourism industry, develop the modern service industry in Shanghai, and move Shanghai forward towards the strategic goal of becoming a leading international meetings destination in the Asia-Pacific region and a well-known international tourist destination. It will give industry professionals and experts of both China and the world an opportunity to have practical exchanges and give China an opportunity to showcase its meetings and tourism industry.
