ACCCLATAM, the Association of Convention Centres of the Caribbean and Latin America and the Singapore Association of Convention and Exhibition Organizers and Suppliers are the latest industry organizations to join with global colleagues as members of the Joint Meetings Industry Council (JMIC).
JMIC is an organization that represents the combined interests of international Meetings Industry associations.
The two associations, along with SISO – the Society of Independent Show Organizers – make for a total of three additions to the Council roster in the last three months and illustrate a new momentum since the approval late last year of a new Charter and Strategic Plan for the industry body.
“Along with a strong new sense of direction as approved at our most recent Council meeting in Barcelona in November has come an enhanced sense of engagement as reflected in the addition of these valued new members and several more recent member applications which we are currently processing” said JMIC President Kai Hattendorf, who is also CEO of UFI, the Global Association of the Exhibition Industry.
“These new members, particularly in terms of the strong geographic diversity they represent, illustrate the importance we are placing on having comprehensive industry engagement in the process of more effectively representing and speaking for the global industry, Hattendorf added.”
