On September 5, the 2019 China International Meetings Development Conference • Chengdu (CIMDC), guided by the International Congress and Convention Association (ICCA), organized by the China Meetings Industry Convention (CMIC), and co-undertaken by the Chengdu Municipal Bureau of Exposition and Dujiangyan city government, was convened in Chengdu's Dujiangyan City.

 

 

The event brought together many distinguished guests from home and abroad, including ICCA's Asia-Pacific director and former vice president, co-founder of the BestCities Global Alliance, and secretary general of CMIC.

 

The ICCA, headquartered in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, was founded in 1963. It is the global community and knowledge hub for the international association meetings industry. Now, it has over 1,100 member companies and organizations in 99 countries and regions around the world.

 

At the conference, Dujiangyan officially became a member of the ICCA. Before the event, it had been designated as the permanent host city of CIMDC, which was held for the first time and will be held annually here in the city.

 

The Chengdu Municipal Bureau of Exposition, InterContinental Century City Chengdu, and Chengdu Linkshare Culture Creativity Co., Ltd. are also members of the ICCA.

 

Chengdu is now putting great efforts into its MICE industry. Last year, its gross revenue from the sector hit more than RMB100 billion for the first time, attracting over 100 million exhibitors and visitors with an area for exhibition of over 10 million square meters.
