ICPAN 2019 HOST SITE PROPOSALS
bid review document
As of 12/13 September, 3 new PCO Proposals pending reciept - to be reviewed.
Quintana Roo (includes Cancun, Cozumel, Playa del Carmen, Riviera Maya, and Tulum): U.S. citizens should be aware that according to Government of Mexico statistics, the state of Quintana Roo experienced an increase in homicide rates compared to 2016. While most of these homicides appeared to be targeted criminal organization assassinations, turf battles between criminal groups have resulted in violent crime in areas frequented by U.S. citizens. Shooting incidents, in which innocent bystanders have been injured or killed, have occurred.
spain & Portugal (2 sites, 1 file)
uae : Dubai & Abu Dhabi
Board Meeting Update (12/13 September):
Agreed to remove UAE from site pool due to lack of established conference support capability/experience.
Update (6 September) ... further info about PCO offering for UAE. I am under the impression that this may be the first time they have done anything other than find hotels. So may not be ideal. Cheers ~ Meg
