The ICCA UK & Ireland Chapter announced the winners of its millennials competition during the Chapter meeting at IMEX in Frankfurt yesterday. Millennials from across the UK were asked to detail how they would benefit from attendance at the 2018 ICCA Congress in Dubai. In a competition that saw a large number of entries the winner was:
• Lindsay Ackers, Scottish Event Campus Glasgow – who wins flights and registration for the 2018 ICCA Congress.
The runners up were: • Caitriona Doran, Meet in Ireland– who wins registration to the 2019 ICCA UK & Ireland Debate in Harrogate. • Serena Tallarico, London & Partners – who wins registration to the 2019 ICCA UK & Ireland Debate in Harrogate.
During the Chapter meeting it was also revealed that the ICC Wales will host the 2020 ICCA UK & Ireland Chapter Debate.
Diane Waldron, chair on the ICCA UK & Ireland Chapter commented: “The quality of the entries for the millennial competition was extremely high, as were the submissions to host the 2020 debate. It is great to see so many individuals and organisation wanting to get involved with ICCA on both a Chapter and global level and I look forward to seeing how Lindsay will benefit from her first time at such a prestigious event. Our annual debate has become a major fixture on the UK meetings industry calendar and I also look forward to the warm welcome we will undoubtably receive from all the team at the ICC Wales.”
