Tourisme Montréal: News and People Industry News and Leaders

The International Congress and Convention Association (ICCA) is a linchpin organization in the events field that we’re proud to have been a member of for a whopping 25 years now. That’s a milestone worth celebrating! We at Tourisme Montréal cannot wait to meet you all at the 62nd annual ICCA Congress in Bangkok from November 12 to 15, 2023.

About ICCA

ICCA was founded in 1963 by a group of travel agents whose original goal was to collect and share practical information about the market for international meetings. With the meeting industry booming even more quickly than expected, the organization quickly took root and gathered memberships from hundreds of representatives from various sectors of the travel industry.

Six decades later this year, ICCA’s network of over 1,000 members spans the globe, into almost 100 countries. Tourisme Montréal has been a proud member since 1998.
