Organised by the ICC World Chambers Federation, the World Chambers Congress is the only international forum for chamber leaders and professionals to share best-practices, exchange insights, develop networks, address the latest business issues affecting their communities and learn about new areas of innovation from chambers around the world.

Held every two years in a different region of the world, 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 on both chamber and business activities.

With both formal and informal occasions to develop networks, the Congress is the ideal place to establish institutional ties and promote trade and investment opportunities from attending companies, countries and regions.

In an ever-changing business climate, the Congress addresses some of the most significant global issues of our time from sustainability and diversity challenges to slowing global trade and digital growth.

Featuring renowned speakers from all over the word, Congress delegates benefit from first-hand knowledge and diverse perspectives on a broad number of pertinent topics slated for discussion during the event’s extensive three-day programme.

This flagship event is much more than just a chamber’s gathering. In convening the globe’s most prominent leaders and brightest minds, we aim to help transform the future of business.

The next ICC WCF World Chambers Congress will be co-organised with the Brazilian Commercial and Business Associations (CACB) and held in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, from 12-14 June 2019.
