ICC and WCF are dedicated to global outreach. As such, we believe it is essential that the Congress, taking place every two years, is held in a different region of the world on each occasion. In rotating the event’s location, it is easier for all of our international delegates to attend at least once. If your chamber is interested in co-organising a World Chambers Congress (WCC) in your country, please follow the WCC Bid Guidelines.
The 14th World Chambers Congress will take place in Melbourne, Australia in 2025, co-organised by the Victorian Chamber of Commerce and Industry. This marks the fourth time that the event has been held in the Asia-Pacific Region, having previously taken place in Seoul in 2001, Kuala Lumpur in 2009 and Sydney in 2017.
The 15th World Chambers Congress will take place in the Americas in 2027. Send your letter of interest to Elisabetta.PILATI@iccwbo.org before 2025 to take part in the Congress bidding process, noting that it is never too early to get to know us and the Congress better.
The Congress over the years:
The Congress provides unparalleled opportunities to connect and strengthen relations with a diverse and international group of individuals representing more than 100+ countries. It is a valuable and dynamic forum facilitating the exchange of real-world ideas and best practices in both chamber and business activities and it has been growing ever since its launch in 1999.
