International Congress and Convention Association launched Edition 2 of its Big Data tool. The tool helps ICCA members to search public databases of academic content and contacts, and to link the results to ICCA’s association database, enabling them to identify local representatives who could help them to bid for an international association meeting. The new Edition 2 identifies whether selected “ambassadors” in local universities are also featured within the websites of associations and congresses in the selected academic field. Also, ICCA selected Dubai for its 2018 convention.
