President's Message

The 100th edition of IAPCO’s ‘The PCO’ is solid proof of the strength of our community.

Within the global meetings industry, IAPCO provides a unique platform that enables knowledge sharing between members and industry peers. So what is the definition of ‘knowledge sharing’? A quick search and I found the following:

Knowledge sharing is an activity through which knowledge (namely, information, skills, or expertise) is exchanged among people, friends, peers, families, communities, or within or between organizations. It bridges the individual and organizational knowledge, improving the absorptive and innovation capacity and thus leading to sustained competitive advantage of companies as well as individuals.

This is precisely what we do as a community, and where ‘The PCO’ has become recognized as one our most important platforms that enable this sharing.

Thanks to all the magazine’s contributors. We couldn’t have done this without you.

On a different note, with the decrease in the number of Covid cases around the world and travel restriction lifting, we are delighted to be back at IMEX in Frankfurt – BIG TIME. Happy to share that we had a group of over 20 IAPCO hosted buyers from around the globe, a full program of EDGE@ seminars and engagement opportunities with our members, partners and industry peers.

It was great to see so many industry friends and IAPCO Members at the show and to share in both inspiring and interesting discussions.

Recruitment and retention is certainly top of mind for many in our industry, so IAPCO will be doing all we can to help our Members in this regards in the coming months. Watch this space…

Yours, Ori

Enjoy reading this 100th edition.
