André Kaldenhoff

Success. The 50th ICCA Congress will take place in Leipzig, Germany in the Congress Center Leipzig at the end of October/early November 2011.The ICCA Board’s decision was made at the IMEX 2008 exhibition in Frankfurt and was revealed one day after IMEX. The other finalists for 2011 were Pittsburgh, U.S.A. and a joint effort from Abu Dhabi and Dubai, United Arab Emirates. Martin Sirk, ICCA CEO said: “I think the three bids for our 2011 congress have been the strongest ever, but it was the truly exceptional standard of the Leipzig bid that led to the ICCA Board’s decision. It was carefully focused on ICCA’s business and development objectives, highly creative and involved a committed ICCA team from all over Germany. I am sure they will enable us to deliver a superb Congress.”
