Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emirates
Senthil Gopinath, ICCA CEO, and HE Saleh Mohamed Al Geziry, Director General for Tourism at the Department of Culture andTourism – Abu Dhabi
We are pleased to announce that the 63rd ICCA Congress on 20-23 October 2024 will take our members to one the world’s most modern and vibrant capitals, a destination renowned for its hospitality, courtesy, and excellent state-of-the-art facilities: Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emirates. The ICCA Board received several extraordinary bids of the very highest standard. The decision review was in-depth as all bidding destinations showcased their enormous commitment to Congress, and a distinctive creative approach.
Working with ADCEB (Abu Dhabi Convention & Exhibition Bureau), we believe the 133,000 square metre Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre (ADNEC) is a multi-purpose venue that will inspire all who experience it. As will many other features, such as the ease of travelling to Abu Dhabi, the superb array and proximity of first-rate hotel accommodation, the excellent transport links and of course, the splendid range of potential venues for Congress social activities… a key part of any global gathering where opportunities to network reach an optimum level. The 63rd Congress will contribute significantly to Abu Dhabi’s Vision 2030 which sets out a clear strategy around sustainability, education, and career growth; especially for young professionals entering our industry, a passion ICCA shares with our esteemed hosts
