IACC Reports Record Membership Increase, Successful Americas Conference

World Abstract

The International Association of Conference Centres (IACC) welcomed a record 58 new conference venues as members, bringing its total membership to 355 facilities worldwide, its Americas chapter, IACC-Americas, announced last week.

Among the new members are facilities in six new countries that previously were not represented in IACC: Kenya, Ukraine, Hungary, Portugal, Switzerland, and Italy.

Mirroring the organization's global growth, IACC-Americas also announced results from its 2015 annual conference, which took place April 14-17 in Fort Lauderdale, FL: The event attracted 210 attendees, it said, including a record number of first-time delegates.

"A record increase in membership, global expansion, a flourishing educational program, successful media outreach, and new networking opportunities marked 2015 as a year of exceptional achievement for [IACC]," the organization concluded in a press release.
