Now more than 100 associations have accepted an invitation from ICCA to join the portal on the ICCA website and are ready to exchange information.
The portal allows associations to access data about meetings and conferences listed in the ICCA database that are be similar to their own. The search function allows users to search by country, subject and event size.
There will also be an educational element to the portal.
The service is a long-term project that will continue to be adjusted following feedback from users.
ICCA CEO Martin Sirk said: "Associations will be able to discuss venues, destinations and service providers without being sold to from suppliers. Professional conference organisers will not be allowed access."
