53rd ICCA Congress
Expert Advice Appointments
This important element in the Congress programme enables delegates to obtain practical solutions for their most important challenges and advice that is specifically designed for their individual needs, and unlocks the tremendous expertise that exists within the ICCA membership.

Throughout the Congress programme delegates will be able to attend pre-booked 30-minute one-on-one appointments with Experts (drawn from both ICCA members and guest speakers) covering a wide range of topics.

Read what David Bodor from The Hague Convention Bureau says:
"At the 2011 ICCA Congress in Leipzig I set up an Expert Advice Appointment to explore new ways of designing and communicating our city's business events strategy. This June we received the news that an additional EURO 7 million will be invested by our city in destination marketing over the next four years, something which wouldn’t have been possible without the advice we received. Now that's what I call ROI!"
