Recognising Excellence

Awards are an incremental part of recognising excellence.  Every year, IAPCO nominates and awards 3 unique awards across our IAPCO Community:

Innovation Award, supported by IMEX
Finding creative solutions to meet the frequent challenges encountered when organising an international congress is a day-to-day occurrence, however, such initiatives and indeed innovations frequently go unrecognised. This Innovation Award is to recognise those individuals who find the creative solution!
