ICCA, the International Congress and Convention Association, has collaborated with its member Ungerboeck Software International to create a tool for ICCA members that works with Ungerboeck's event and venue management software. This was announced during Ungerboeck's annual EMEA conference on 13th and 14th March at RAI Amsterdam by Ungerboeck's CEO & President Manish Chandak.
Ungerboeck clients now have the ability to import data from ICCA's Association Database to their Ungerboeck software. The data provides insight into association event organizers around the world and opens new business opportunities for ICCA members, such as event venues and convention and visitor bureaus. The tool includes a cross-check capability with existing data so users can select the profiles they wish to import. Furthermore, the tool allows ICCA members to regularly report the data of past and future association meetings that they organized to ICCA via an Excel export upon approval of associations. The spreadsheet with the meeting data can be sent to ICCA’s Research Department by email. This two-way communication allows the industry association to constantly provide up-to-date and high-quality data on international associations and their meetings.
Martin Sirk, CEO at ICCA: "The import and export module that we launched together with Ungerboeck allows us to directly impact ICCA members' business success and to contribute to further economic growth of association meetings around the globe. It allows us to maximize the benefits for ICCA members and continuously improve the value of their membership."
Manish Chandak, CEO & President of Ungerboeck: "Business cooperation in the meetings industry has become more important than ever. The collaboration with ICCA is especially valuable as it creates new opportunities for venues and convention and visitor bureaus and therefore perfectly reflects our vision of supporting the meetings industry with innovative solutions."
