ICCA, the International Congress and Convention Association, has collaborated with its member Ungerboeck Software International to create a new tool for ICCA members that work with Ungerboeck's event and venue management software. Ungerboeck clients now have the ability to import data from ICCA's Association Database to their Ungerboeck software. The data provides insight into association event organizers around the world and opens new business opportunities for ICCA members, such as event venues and convention and visitor bureaus. The tool includes a cross-check capability with existing data so users can select the profiles they wish to import.
Furthermore, the tool allows ICCA members to regularly report the data of past and future association meetings that they organized to ICCA via an Excel export upon approval of associations. The spreadsheet with the meeting data can be sent to ICCA’s Research Department by email.
This two-way communication allows the industry association to constantly provide up-to-date and high-quality data on international associations and their meetings. Martin Sirk, CEO at ICCA, is very pleased about the cooperation with Ungerboeck: "The import and export module that we launched together with Ungerboeck allows us to directly impact ICCA members' business success and to contribute to further economic growth of association meetings around the globe. It allows us to maximize the benefits for ICCA members and continuously improve the value of their membership." (fun)
