CHICAGO, ILLINOIS – Following an 18-month restructure, the International Association of Conference Centres has recently reported its highest single year growth in membership globally, with 58 new members joining the only global professional association representing small to medium-sized venues that focus on meetings, training courses and conferences.

The new memberships have expanded the global reach of IACC by adding six new countries to the growing portfolio, including Kenya, Ukraine, Hungary, Portugal, Switzerland and Italy.

Cooper concluded with, “We are consistently striving to find new ways of delivering education and learning through training, certified learning, staff exchanges, trends and surveys. Our commitment to reaching and exceeding our goals remains as strong and focused as ever. Inspired by our track record, this year will see us aiming ever higher on behalf of our members.”
