Joint Meetings Industry Council takes first Asian member


The Joint Meetings Industry Council has taken its first Asian member, lifting numbers to 13.

The 33-year-old vehicle, created to unify international associations engaged in various aspects of the meetings industry, has accepted the Asian Association of Convention and Visitor Bureaus into membership.

Leigh Harry, President of the JMIC said: "The addition of AACVB to our Council further enhances JMIC's ability to fully represent the global meetings industry at a time when there is a greater need than ever for action on key industry issues.

“In particular, it will help us further raise the profile of the industry on an international basis, and to demonstrate that this sector has a truly global impact. As we have said previously, it is important that we present a strong and united front when the need arises, and that need has never been greater than at the current time."
