ICCA, the International Congress and Convention Association, is excited to welcome the association community and ICCA members to Cancun, Mexico, from 24-26 June for the third in-person Global Association Forum. This annual event focuses on bringing together association meeting planners, senior association representatives, and meeting suppliers from around the world to offer valuable insights, practical tools, and resources to support the association meetings industry.

During events held over three days, participants will explore how to create meaningful connections for meetings that matter with dynamic, interactive sessions aimed at providing valuable insights, practical tools, and resources to support the growth and development of the associations meetings industry. This internationally accredited educational content has been created by a panel of top international association and meetings industry leaders.

“The Global Association Forum, held this year in the incredible city of Cancun, Mexico, is an important part of ICCA’s commitment to providing great value to our members and facilitate meaningful connections that allow them to grow and achieve their business objectives,” said ICCA CEO Senthil Gopinath. “We look forward to another successful gathering of associations and ICCA members for productive and insightful sessions that help build our great community and move us forward together.” 

This year’s Global Association Forum will incorporate a unique matchmaking-technology program that creates tailored business networking opportunities, connecting association-meeting planners with potential meeting suppliers. Attendees will also dive deep into key trends in regenerative meeting design, learning about how to create meetings with more societal impact.

The ICCA Global Association Forum will take place at the Cancun Center, a convention centre and hotel with more than 30 years of experience hosting international events, and whose nonprofit foundation works with the community and event coordinators to preserve the culture, health, and environment of the Quintana Roo region.

The city of Cancun is currently developing a Sustainable Tourism Master Plan, which outlines the city’s goals for environmental responsibility. A key component of this plan is the commitment to beach cleaning in the Hotel Zone.
