CIC Publications


The Convention Industry Council Manual, 9th Edition

The CIC Manual is a valuable tool for industry professionals and is widely recognized as the most comprehensive resource available for managing the basic components of a successful meeting. Written by some of the world's leading meeting, convention and exhibition-planning professionals, the manual contains detailed information about how to effectively organize, plan, publicize, manage and budget for group events of any size.

The 9th Edition has been updated to follow the CMP International Standards, which were first included on the CMP exam in 2012. The updated CMP exam as well as the manual is now more internationally focused. In addition, the CIC Manual and the CIC International Manual were combined in the 9th Edition. The 9th Edition is also now organized to follow the 10 domains in the CMP-IS. So now, for instance, the first chapter is about “Strategic Planning,” which is the first of the 10 domains. The 9th Edition is being offered in both print and ebook format. Click here for more information on the update.
