The International Association of Professional Congress Organisers (IAPCO) Annual Meeting will be held in Rome in 2021.
The bid for the event was led by a team made up of Ega Worldwide Congress and Events, AIM Group International and OIC Group.
Cristina Aru of Ega said, adding: "Rome hosted the IAPCO Annual Meeting in 1976: they were pioneer times for the meetings industry and for our new-born profession.
"Of course, many things have developed since then and we will be sharing with our colleagues a real 'Roman Experience' from the historic to the modern era."
It is hoped the event will offer many "memorable experiences" for IAPCO attendees.
Patrizia Semprebene Buongiorno, AIM Group International said: "Rome is not only art, fantastic architecture, monuments and museums, it is lifestyle, it is traditions, it’ s all about making even the most ordinary extraordinary.
"Our IAPCO colleagues will certainly find that while the city’s past is awe-inspiring, its present is equally invigorating, and we are looking forward to enjoying with them our city and a unique general assembly."
