ICCA Congress 2017

Reminder: The Future Belongs to Us – Deadline extended to Monday 30 October. Born after 1980? Please submit!

We have had some feedback from members just over 30 years old that they would like to submit a concept for a “millennial session”, but they thought they were too old to submit their millennial-session idea. By definition a millennial is someone born in the early 1980s to early 2000s. Yes, you are younger than you think!
So we have not only extended the deadline to Monday 30 October, but we also invite everyone born after 1980 to submit your ideas.

ICCA is asking Millennials to compete in a friendly pitching battle at the ICCA Congress in Prague that will help shape ICCA’s next education programme: Born after 1980? Competitive? Creative? Pitch a concept for a future Congress session that you believe will really appeal to your fellow Millennial delegates and win a free registration to attend the 2018 ICCA Congress in Dubai + a budget to turn your idea into reality! You will have to come up with an innovative/engaging format, a great topic or challenge, clear objectives, and explain what’s unique about your idea and why Millennials will like it. 

Please base your idea on the following framework:
• Budget EUR 2000 (which can be spent on guest speakers, extra tech, rented furniture, props, anything – on top of the usual set up for an ICCA session)
• Time 75 or 90 minutes
• Audience 80-120 delegates

The pitching session will be scheduled Wednesday morning after the Copenhagen-Denmark Lecture. Winners will be announced later that day at the Closing Session.

• The winners get to stage their session at the ICCA 2018 Congress in Dubai.
• ICCA will provide a room and a breakout timeslot, with our standard set-up already funded.
• Mentor-style support from an event moderator/designer
• EUR 2000 budget
• Complimentary registration for the ICCA 2018 Congress in Dubai

Who can enter
• The competition is open to presentations made by either one or two individuals
• The individual(s) must be registered to attend the Congress
• The individual(s) must be born after 1980 

How to enter
• Entries can be by video and/or up to 2 pages of A4 and may include text, illustrations, any type of content!
Deadline 30 October!
• Send your submission to Josephin van Waasen

Judging will be based on:
• Originality of concept/format
• Topicality/importance of content.
• Likely appeal to Millennials.
• Good/innovative use of budget.
