International Association of Congress Centers launched IACCmeetings.com. The goal is to provide a streamlined experience for meeting planners searching for a conference venue. One of the major features of the new design is the separation and distinction of the venue directory, to provide an improved online environment for both meeting planners and members who have their own landing page at IACConline.org.
