ICCA UK and Ireland Chapter's Annual Debate will be the key meeting in the association’s calendar, replacing its previous winter and summer debates, and anticipates welcoming some 80 delegates from all over the UK and Ireland, including Professional Conference Organisers (PCOs), convention bureaux, convention centres, hotels, events technology providers, transport providers and more.
Kerrin MacPhie, ICCA UK and Ireland Chapter Chair and Director of sales at ACC Liverpool, comments: "Brighton presented an excellent bid to host our annual debate and we are delighted that we will be heading South with our chapter delegation. In 2015, we have chosen to focus on an annual debate, making this the key calendar event for our chapter members to connect, hear from expert speakers and debate key industry trends."
VisitBrighton’s Sales Manager, Darren Johnson, adds: “VisitBrighton has always valued and been proud of its ICCA membership so we, along with our city partners, are delighted that the city has been selected as the 2015 destination for the ICCA UK & Ireland Chapter Annual Debate.
“I’ve no doubt Brighton will provide a fitting backdrop for this prestigious event and I am truly confident that whilst in the city, delegates will have a productive, enjoyable and memorable time. A warm welcome from Brighton awaits everyone who plans to come along to this key meeting in the industry’s calendar.”
The ICCA UK and Ireland Chapter represents 74 members and continues to grow each year. Attendance at the annual debate is open to members and non-members. A full programme will be unveiled closer to the event.
