President's Message


“Meeting Quality” is more than a tagline, it is a responsibility – to our clients, to our partners, to each other as well as to the industry at large. Quality is more than just a checklist – it is an ongoing commitment to furthering our abilities and sharing best practices.


It goes beyond membership and gives us an opportunity to help move our industry forward and in fact lead it. IAPCO is the voice for Professional Congress Organisers in our industry. As we have been growing our international reach over the last few years, we are committed to continue on that path and promote the quality mark around the globe while putting a special focus on developing emerging conference markets. We are a unique association, as we are a group of competitors that realise that the common purpose – being a tested and reliable partner to our clients – unites us and opens up new opportunities for all of us.


It is that spirit that allows us to speak as one voice and shape the industry. IAPCO will remain committed to collaboration and it is our mandate to grow and strengthen the “P” in PCO and therefore be a reliable brand of quality to clients and our industry partners.
