The association selected the Chinese destination over Houston in the US and the Gold Coast in Australia - both of which were finalists in the bid to host ICCA's 52nd congress on 2-6 November, 2013.

ICCA chief executive Martin Sirk said: "Shanghai's bid involved members from all over China. It positioned the ICCA congress as a key milestone in the strategic development of China's international meetings industry and it was packed with creative concepts and clearly communicated the enthusiasm and commitment of the host team."

ICCA has also announced that its Research, Sales & Marketing Programme 2012 will take place in Vorarlberg in Austria on 14-16 June at the Festival House Bregenz.
