Thailand will host the ICCA Congress 2023
The annual event will be held from November 12 to 15 in Bangkok
As a leading metropolis in Southeast Asia, Bangkok has extensive experience in hosting countless international meetings. It is a world-renowned business and tourist destination with smart city development, affluent infrastructure, world-class conference facilities, a wide variety of accommodation and gracious Thai hospitality.
The Congress aims to help reimagine the future of the city together with ICCA and the global business events industry and benefit the local community. The Thailand Convention and Exhibition Bureau (TCEB) will support ICCA in convening a successful, creative and enjoyable congress in 2023.
“Thailand is proud to be an active ICCA member since 1974 and is honored to host the 2023 ICCA Congress. As part of the ICCA community, Thailand has progressed to become a
meeting destination. Similarly, TCEB has gone from promoting the beautiful destination to shaping the future and value of trade events to make a mark on the world. Our
The intention for ICCA Congress 2023 is to co-create an annual congress that rewards every delegate while supporting all of ICCA's strategic goals while also portraying our vision and capability as a host destination," stated Mr. Chiruit Isarangkun Na Ayuthaya, President of TCEB.
“The recently promised Net Zero Carbon Events initiative, for example, is in tune with TCEB's vision and goal. For us as a country, Thailand reinvents a future of sustainable development where no one is left behind. As a city, Bangkok reinvents a future as a global metropolis and a hub of knowledge and creativity. As a national convention bureau,
TCEB reinvents a future in which business events help foster the country's social and economic growth, while reducing the industry's carbon footprint and preserving environmental resources for future generations."
ICCA CEO Senthil Gopinath: “I thank TCEB and Thailand for the ambition to host the 2023 ICCA Congress. TCEB clearly demonstrated structured planning, support from crucial partners in the region and offering a beautiful environment for guests gather. ICCA's intent is both to produce a world-class global event and to provide a real-time case study in a redefined ICCA Congress format.
There is no doubt that the ICCA Congress in Bangkok will show how business events can contribute to socio-economic development, upskill the meetings industry and prepare for the future. The format of the Congress will consider both education and shared experiences. I am sure that ICCA delegates will be able to experience memorable Thai hospitality and professionalism.”
