Russian members cannot participate in events promoted by the association.
The board of directors of ICCA – International Congress and Convention Association announced, after an emergency meeting, the unanimous decision to cancel all events and activities planned for Russia. In addition, Russian members will not be able to attend ICCA events until further notice.
“On behalf of the Board, we categorically and unequivocally condemn Russian aggression in Ukraine. ICCA is liaising with our members in Ukraine and we will be contributing €10,000 to an agreed humanitarian charity to support them in their efforts to provide aid to those Ukrainians who are suffering as a result of these acts of aggression. Our heart goes out to all those affected by this unprovoked and devastating war. We wish for nothing more than to see an end to this conflict before more innocent lives are lost”, states James Rees, ICCA’s President.
