The award was handed over at the 56th ICCA Congress on 15 November in Prague. The other two finalists of the 2017 ICCA Best Marketing Award: International Convention Centre Sydney (ICC Sydney) and Shocklogic (UK).
FMCCA is a relatively new player in the field. The conference centre opened its doors June 6th 2017 and is part of the ZOO Foundation, a place of animal welfare, nature conservation and science. A place from which the FMCCA derives its huge and quite remarkable social relevance and anchoring.
The ‘A room with a zoo’ campaign, emphasizes the importance of Instant CSR through conservation.
Anja Stas, Chief Commercial Officer FMCCA:“Every cent spent at our conference centre is managed by the ZOO Foundation and directly contributes to our efforts in the field of animal welfare, heritage, breeding programmes, research and nature conservation. All of this is aimed at the welfare and survival of our zoological friends.”
“We are honored with this great recognition from our industry’s peers from all over the world. I dedicate this award to my whole team, because they made this all possible!”
