ICEC World Congresses & Council Meetings

ICEC holds a global Congress and Council Meeting every 2 years. ICEC also holds annual regional meetings in each of the 4 ICEC regions (Region 1 РNorth/South America, Region 2 РEurope/Near East, Region 3 РAfrica & Region 4 РAsia Pacific). Further meetings are held as required. The first International Cost Engineering Council Congress (ICEC) was held in Montreal, Quebec, Canada in 1971. Since 1972 there has been an ICEC Congress every second year. Our most recent Congress was held in Sydney, Australia in November, 2018. ICEC holds its Council Meeting every 2 years in conjunction with these World Congresses. The next ICEC Congress was due to be held from 15-21 October 2020 in Accra, Ghana as a joint conference with the Africa Association of Quantity Surveyors (AAQS). Unfortunately the Congress has been postponed due to the Covid-19 pandemic.  Due to the uncertainty of the Covid-19 situation in 2021 and the fact that the next ICEC World Congress will be held in 2022 in The Netherlands, a decision has been made to explore the possibility of holding the Accra Congress in 2024 (subject to approval from our Region 1 member associations).
