The final shortlist of 12 entries for the 2018 Incredible Impacts Programme have been announced by BestCities Global Alliance and the International Congress and Convention Association (ICCA). Shortlisted associations represent a broad range of sectors including leadership; scientific innovation; humanitarianism; environmental issues; music; disease; disability, and child neglect. The final judging will now take place with the winners to be announced after 10 September 2018.

Paul Vallee, Managing Director of BestCities said: “A core goal of BestCities is to nurture and develop the purpose of events beyond traditional planning, focusing on vital areas including legacy development, sustainability and accessibility. It is hugely encouraging to see these values being replicated by associations the world over, who are making lasting contributions to the destinations they visit.”

Dennis Speet, ICCA Interim CEO, added: “We hope that this year’s superb entries inspire other associations and meeting planners to consider how they can create a legacy with their meetings and leave a long-lasting impact on their host destinations.”
