  • Don't just take our word for it

    “The ICCA FYP was a very educational and positive experience. Having access to such an energised group of junior and senior industry professionals was incredibly motivating and the forum gave me the unique opportunity to discuss key topics with suppliers outside of a direct business negotiation; something which was invaluable.
    “Not only have I have gained an incredibly strong and diverse network of industry peers, also some of us have become friends and with some of my fellow attendees I have co-founded Meetings and Millennials to keep the conversation going. I would definitely recommend any young person starting out in our industry to apply; they won’t regret it.”
