Norway scoops new MICE event

ICCA launches new meeting in Stavanger
Stavanger has been chosen out of three shortlisted bids to host the first event in a new annual programme organised by the International Congress and Convention Association.
The ICCA’s Board of Directors chose the Norwegian city to host the first ever Association Meetings Programme (AMP), where association members and international executives will learn more about key aspects of bidding and decision-making, organising, promoting and designing international meetings.
It is replacing the old Research, Sales and Marketing Programme, which was open to ICCA members only. AMP will take place on July 5-7 for ICCA members, while associations will start a day earlier (July 4-7).
“We’re thrilled that the ICCA has chosen Stavanger to host the first ever AMP,” said Per Morten Haarr of the Stavanger Convention Bureau. “This will also be the first global ICCA event to be held in Scandinavia since the 2002 congress, and we know that our ICCA friends from across the region and beyond will be eager to participate.”
