ICCA Australia Committee and ICCA Asia Pacific Regional Office are pleased to present the International Meetings Seminar (IMS), taking place at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre, February 18-19, prior to the Asia Pacific Incentives & Meetings Expo (AIME) in Melbourne, Australia.
The seminar will be entering its fourth year with more exciting and stimulating educational sessions. Consultant expert Nicholas Kent is set to return for another comprehensive Sales and Bidding Training and the closing keynote speech will be presented by international speaker and best-selling author, Kate Christie, founder and CEO of Time Stylers.
Anna Case (pictured right), chair ICCA Australia, said: “This year, our committee have focused on engaging with more association executives who will provide insights on aspects they need to consider when planning an international conference. These practical tips will assist our members to be in a better position to understand the issues associations face internally before decisions can be made on destinations options.”
IMS welcomes anyone currently working full time in a position related to the meetings industry. A limited number of spaces are being made available to non-ICCA members as well.
