Houston - A global hub for Innovation and Technology

A global, modern and vibrant city bursting with culture and personality, Houston has innovation and technology at its heart. One of the original oil boomtowns, Houston is a major international research and development powerhouse for the Energy, Medical, Aeronautics, Maritime and Ports industries and home to big names such as NASA Johnson Space Center and Texas Medical Center, the largest medical complex in the world. With this brings a strong presence of international associations – over 29 of them have offices in Houston.

As a hub of knowledge and business operations for international players in the energy and tech sectors, Houston has long attracted people from across the world to come and make their mark on the local economy and culture. Houston is the fourth largest city in the U.S.A. and its most diverse, and it boasts impressive credentials: in 2017, Forbes named Houston among the top 12 destinations in the world to visit. More than 140 languages are spoken in the city, making it a natural haven for the international meetings industry.

Houston’s connections to the experts of major industries and its international, welcoming nature promise that ICCA delegates will experience an innovative Congress programme. With unique educational content and unrivalled networking and business opportunities with local stakeholders, the 2019 ICCA Congress is not to be missed.
