Young industry members keen to boost their careers should prick up their ears.   It’s on again.  ICCA’s annual forum, pitched at career-minded industry people under 30, offers a fast-track learning opportunity over an intensive two days in Melbourne prior to AIME.

Forum manager Elizabeth Rich says the 2013 program has been released and she is anticipating another sell out.

“We leverage off the AIME tradeshow to develop a quality program using senior industry experts visiting Melbourne,” she said.

“The 2013 theme is Revitalise Your Thinking with a focus on new approaches and innovative case studies in the meetings industry.  It will feature at least four international speakers along with leading Aussie practitioners.”

Running from February 24 to 25, the program should be especially attractive to ICCA members since it is offered at no cost for their staff to attend courtesy of ICCA’s education fund, AIME, the MCVB and the MCEC.

There are limited spaces for non-members to apply at a cost of $330.  Full program and registration details can be found on the ICCA website by clicking here.  Email enquiries can be directed to
