Meeting design, regeneration and legacy impact will be the key topics explored at the newly launched ICCA Global Association Community Forum.

Taking place in Lausanne, Switzerland on 5-7 September 2022, at the Beaulieu Convention Center, the forum will take a collaborative and interactive approach, delivering educational content through group activities.

Business networking will also be incorporated to allow ICCA members and association executives to meet on a one-to-one basis to fully explore each other’s needs and work together towards improved event delivery.

The education programme has been curated with practical takeaways in mind. These include:

  • What are the key trends with regards to innovative event design?
  • How to create meetings that leave a legacy behind?
  • How does event delivery need to adapt to current and future needs?
  • Practical tips on making your meetings more regenerative.
  • How can meeting suppliers and associations work together to create meetings that matter?
Monday 5 September will be dedicated to networking and ice breakers, with the following day full of educational content, an evening dinner and a social activity. The final day, Wednesday 7 September, will begin with morning education sessions followed by lunch and the closing of the event.


There is an option for association executives to stay in Lausanne to explore its meetings and events offering after the forum.

Association executives, ICCA Members and observers are all welcome to attend the forum. Registration fees vary with a limited number of fully hosted places available via direct applications.

Fees for ICCA members are €690 (£572) and work on a first-come-first-serve basis, with only one participant per company allowed. For observers, tickets are €990 (£820).
