2018 ICCA Africa Client/Supplier Workshop

How to Participate

Firstly please read the Guidelines carefully so that you understand the conditions for participation. To participate in this Workshop you need to find an African Association client who meets the following criteria to invite to the Workshop:
  1. He/she must be a key decision-maker or has decision making influence with regards to where the African conference takes place in future. 
  2. He/she must present an African Association and not an International Association. Note as from 2018 only African Association Executives will qualify to attend the Workshop. 
  3. The conference should not have been represented and the client must not have been present at any ICCA Africa workshop held within the previous 3 years. (see Exclusion list under the “My ICCA” section of the website). 
  4. In order to keep in line with ICCA’s new strategic goal #2 – Engage Association Executives, the guidelines have slightly changed and only association executive clients will be accepted straight away. Anyone registering with a Core PCO or AMC client will be held on a waiting list until the registration deadline and will only be offered a place if there are still places available and providing they meet the criteria and submit a document in which the client association agrees to be represented and states that the Core PCO or association management company is involved in the decision influencing process concerning future location of their event. 

Tips on how to find a suitable client:

  1. Invite a client you know:
    a. Have you recently hosted an African Association meeting that meets the above criteria? Consider inviting a representative from this association who is a decision maker or influencer (for example, member of Board, Secretary General, CEO, Managing Director, Events Manager, Conference Coordinator, Conference Administrator etc)
    b. Do you have any local Ambassadors who hold a position on the Executive Board/Committees for an African Association meeting 
  2. Invite a client from the ICCA database
    a. Make a selection from the ICCA database to find a suitable client who meets the criteria of this workshop
       i. Decision maker or influencer of an African Association conference (Rotation: Africa)
