"Welcome to the MIBEXPO Exhibition, organised by ICCA member Euroexpo Exhibitions & Congress Development.
Russia's international meetings market is booming; the number of international association meetings taking place in Russia has climbed form 17 in 2000 to 41 in 2008 and this number is sure to keep on growing. International corporate meetings are climbing as Russia's involvement in the globalised economy becomes ever stronger, with both incoming and outgoing meeting traffic expanding fast.
ICCA is keen to encourage the MIBEXPO Exhibition to become a strong platform for international suppliers in the region to meet with Russian and international meeting planners, and to improve knowledge of and expertise in the complex and important international association meetings sector.
We wish you a great show!"
Mr. Martin Sirk, ICCA CEO13.10.2008
